Successful Families

Lady Charity

Janice B., an adoptive parent in Dallas, Texas

I was encouraged by friends to get involved and become a foster/adoptive parent. I am so glad that I did. I was a single female but now I have a family. I am a single mom who was blessed to foster and then adopt a baby girl that was only 4 days old when she entered my life. She is now 14 months old. She has brought so much joy to my life and the life of my family and friends. I thank God everyday for putting us together and allowing me the opportunity to be in her life.

She was the first foster child placed with me just after getting licensed on May 28, 2003. She was born on May 2003. I was nervous and excited all at the same time when the placement worker called to see if I could take her in my home. I did not have any children so asking me to take care of this little treasure was going to be an experience. Thank God for my family that supported me through this new experience. My family has been awesome since day one when Lady Charity arrived at my home.

On the day Lady Charity arrived she had many arms that were waiting to meet and greet this little Princess. She has beautiful blues eyes and everywhere we go she draws a smile of some child or adult.

She captured my heart and it has been amazing to see her grow. The one thing I did'nt like was the wait for the adoption to become final, but I thank God that He gave us the peace and grace while we waited and on June 2004 we finalized the adoption.
