Successful Families

The best decision my family has ever made...

David and Angela H., adoptive parents in Weir, Mississippi

My husband and I wanted so much to have a child on our own, but have been unable to do so. We turned it all over to the Lord and prayed for guidance in the way we should go. We were lead to Harden House where we were introduced to the staff and eventually to our son.

Our son was 10 years old when we adopted him. Now 12, he has been the joy of our lives. He is an only child and I guess you could say he is a little spoiled. When he came to us, he had a lot of physical and emotional problems. We did'nt’t quite know whether or not we could make it through. Little did we know then, that he had already made up his mind--he was going to make this work. With the Lord’s help, we made it through our ups and our downs successfully.

I can indeed say that this was and is the best decision my family has ever made. I love my family and now I would like to try and find my son a sister or sisters, because for Christmas this year he asked Santa Claus. He prays everyday that the lord allow him to have a sister or sisters. I think he wants to be a big brother!
