Successful Families

A Joy, Struggle, Challenge and a Blessing

John and Cindy R., adoptive parents in Seguin, Texas

It has been a joy, a struggle, a challenge and a blessing all rolled up into one. John and I adopted our five year old son Austin two years ago. There were times when I honestly did not know if we we were ever going to be "a normal family". We did not know if Austin would ever truly fit in and feel like without a doubt he belonged to us.

He was behind in learning and he behind emotionally. Two years down the road, with our commitment to God and our committment to Austin we are as much a family as anyone.

Austin is a straight 'A' student and we are Mom and Dad without a doubt. We owe a lot of our successes to our friends and family. Their love and support has been and still is a God send. Thank you.
