Successful Families

Savannah, the desire of our hearts.

Kevin and Ruth H., an adoptive family in Kingwood, Texas

My husband and I knew when we were transferred to Texas that we wanted to try to adopt a child. After 15yrs. of marriage, we had not been able to have a child. We contacted CPS and started our PRIDE training.

In March of 2001, our home study was approved. Later we found out that was the same month our daughter was born. In November of 2001 we got a call from our foster/adopt worker. She wanted to know if we would be interested in a "legal risk" 8 mo. old baby girl. We said we would be. The very next day, they brought Savannah to our home and placed her in our arms. That was the day our lives changed forever.

Ater 10 months of loving and caring for her we were finally told we could adopt her. Almost a year and a half after she came in to our lives she was leagally ours. She is almost 3yrs. old now. She is smart and funny and so beautiful. God heard our prayers and gave us the desire of our hearts.
