Referral anniversary

NOW..........

Then.........

2 yrs ago today our lives were changed. We saw her beautiful face for the first time. It looked as if she was unsure of life and where her path would take her. We were instantly in love and wanted to reassure her that all would be ok and her family would soon come and get her. She has since filled our lives with laughter and fun with learning about life along the way. We won't ever be the same....thank goodness. I believe she loves us as much as we love her. She greets each day with a smile and a hug for each one of us. She now has started saying "I promise I won't ever leave you" I make the same promise to her.




My sweet Clairebear....thanks for letting us be your family.

She has changed so much. Congrats!





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
