Look what we’ve done together!
Wayne’s parents knew the dim prognosis, but that didn’t stop them from adopting him. A few years later I felt a chill run up my spine when I saw Wayne cross a low set balance beam. He turned around and shouted, “Mom, look at me! See what I did!” The smiles of his physical therapist and his mom were about a broad as they could be.
As The Adoption Exchange nears a big celebratory milestone – counting the 7,000th adoption match – we all feel a little like Wayne when he safely reached the goal and stepped off the balance beam.
Hey, look! Seven thousand children have been given the chance to discover they are loveable.
Wayne didn’t stop growing and developing. And neither is The Adoption Exchange. But for a moment we plan to stop and cheer for what we’ve all done together.
