Successful Families

Journey Worth Traveling

Pete and Leslie V., adoptive parents in Traverse, MI

Latina DaughtersWe had a three year old birth son and we wanted to expand our family through adoption. I am a Spanish teacher and we live in Michigan.

Seven years ago we got the call that we had been selected for our 3 daughters who were living in Texas!

The distance added to the challenge but it was worth it all. Our girls have been so wonderful to raise. They bonded quickly and love having a family. We feel like our extended family has changed and grown in ways not possible had it not been for our lively "Latina" daugthers. Seeing them develop into young ladies has made us so appreciative and proud. Adoption is a journey worth traveling.
