Successful Families

Our whole lives changed forever.

Vivian and Pete , adoptive parents in Sequin, Texas

Vivian and Pete, adoptive parentsMy husband and I would have our whole lives changed forever. We had tried to have children for many years, but we eventually gave up on that ideal...but God had other ideals for us. In 1999, I received a phone call from a friend of mine who knew of two children who were in foster care and were needing a forever family. She thought the children would fit us perfect.

To say the least, we adopted those two wonderful children in 2001, and have never looked back! My son is a special needs child, but ever day that he strives forward and accomplishes a new task makes my proud heart swell even more. My daughter is now a beautiful teenager, and doing very well in school. Everyday that I get to spend with my children in my life is truly a God sent blessing.

Both of my children were older, and had a lot of problems, but with strong devotion, love, a lot of attention, and the Lord in our hearts, we helped our children over come their past emotional problems. Now we have two wonderful, healthily, loving children. I pray that more people will get involved and adopt older children, and not be afraid when they hear special, ADHD, bipolar, or any other condition, and give up on these children. They all need good parents to love them, and help them.
