Successful Families

Dear Adoption Exchange:

I live in Wyoming and I recently adopted our first child. We fostered our 13 year old son for 10 months and were overjoyed to become first-time parents.

I'd like to let others know that being a parent although trying at times is an AWESOME experience. Especially knowing that we have forever changed this child's life as much as he has changed ours.

The benefits of adopting an older child are enormous both mentally and spiritually. I just wanted to share this with others who may be thinking of fostering or adopting older children.
