Successful Families

We have truly been blessed...

Rose D, an adoptive parent in Houston

We decided to adopt a child after trying for many years to have a child. We read a article about a successful adoption though the One Church, One Child program in Houston. We inquired and received information and immediately started the process. We wanted a girl within a specific age group in mind but by the end of the training we just wanted a child. The program training truly prepared us for a child.

Several months later, after completing the process we adopted a beautiful 2 year old boy. W never thought we could love anyone that did not come from us, as much as we love him. We have truly been blessed. Our son is a gift from God. We had some stumbling blocks, but nothing that we can not handle. The One Church, One Child family has been very supportive. We thank them every time we see them, because they made our dream come true.

We are looking forwarded to adopting again, a girl this time. We recommend adoption to anyone who has extra love to give to a child. It takes a big heart and lots of prayers. For anyone who is considering adoption, please pray and then open your heart and home to little or big child(ren) who needs a place to call home. Our son believes in telling everyone this is my house, my room, and most importantly he tells everyone this is my DAD, and my MOM.
