Thank you for placing her where she would be found. Thank you for being brave, smart, selfless, and full of love. She is the joy and love of our lives. She continues to love without conditions and is smarter than we could ever tell you.

You will remain in our hearts on this day and we will honor you always. I pray that your heart is full of peace knowing that you did the right thing. Thank you dear birth mother for giving me this blessed child. She has so many cousins and grandparents that love and adore her. She has a sister that she already longs to be just like. She has your beautiful eyes and smile. She has my stubborness and love of shoes.

Thank you again for our princess .

Stephanie, what a beautiful letter. You know she had to love her baby so much to be able to leave her. Sweet post.

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
