Another Child Home: Dayan, Diana, and Andres

With just the snap of your fingers – things can and do change. Dayan, Diana, and Andres lives have been a whirlwind of events, but they are excited to be adopted by a loving family. “The lead up to the adoption was an exciting time filled with hope, dreams, and anticipation. The day of our first meeting may have been the most nervous I’ve been in my entire life. We went from no children to three children, including a teenager, in an instant.” Even amongst the family’s chaos of adjusting to their new lives, they continue to move forward. “The dreams and anticipation we have is changing on a daily basis as we learn more about our children, their talents and their inspirations, but nonetheless, it is just as strong as it was at that first meeting.” Ties that bind, hold us firmly together. “Your grant was instrumental in us reaching the point where we are today. In addition to easing the financial burden, it also taught us to reach out to friends, family, neighbors, and our community for additional support. Through this additional outreach, we have confirmed and largely expanded our amazement and gratitude for those around us…we are extremely grateful for all your assistance and will continue to be as we see our kids grow and chase their hopes, dreams, and ambitions. Thank you greatly for all you have done to bring us together as a family.”
