Memories

Then.... Now

How we sat by the phone waiting and hoping it would be the day...it was, she was perfect and waiting for us. We were, of course, struck by her beauty, but then some other feelings came into play. I was somewhat disturbed that my baby had been waiting so long in an orphanage, then I was so relieved that they had kept her there for us...they knew she belonged here. We can never express our gratitude to CCAA and our agency for helping us bring this gem into our lives. We can't wait to see what the other yrs hold for us.

I just looked over your blog, what a beautiful little girl you have. I bet your other daughter just loves having a sister!

What a gorgeous girl she is!





Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
