This Is Why


... I believe in adoption.

Photos we had never seen and recently received of our son Ian:
He was four months old and weighed 6.5 lbs.

Wow!

Praise God that now he is in a family that is feeding him physically, emotionally and spiritually. We thank God that He brought the boys to your family!

Those pictures are making me cry. I'm so relieved to see the happy, healthy boy that Ian has become. Thank God that your family is finally together.

Oh Steph! No words. I have no words!

Amanda said...

I am covered in goosebumps. Your poor, sweet Ian.

Praise a Sweet, Sovereign Lord for rescuing him....

Becky said...

Poor little guy! He looks so healthy and happy now- Ian will grow up loved in your home.

I was just wondering, is breastfeeding not very common in Haiti?? Otherwise, it seems like infants would be fairly "covered" food-wise for the first year or so.

oh my stephanie. . . .

how blessed he is to be healthy and alive. praise God for a nurtured, growing, happy fella.

Oh My...Doesn't that just make your heart break. To think that people like unicef would prefer that vunerable orphans would stay in their home country under these conditions...hard to understand. Ian and Alec have been blessed with a very special family.

Oh my gosh Steph! Those pictures make me want to cry. I've seen lots of similar pictures out of Haiti but never knew the stories behind them.

Stephanie I was wondering if I could use these pictures on my blog and share a little about your story? Let me know, I will just share a link and that you adopted the boys but these pictures are reality and I don't think a lot of people really see how bad it really it is. If not, no problem. They are really cute!!
