Unexpected Tears


A snippet from our final Home Study document:

“Lexi celebrated her 2nd birthday with a party at her home with all of her family. She has been fortunate to have her immediate family close by and has frequent contact. Recently, the Smiths traveled to Orlando, Florida to reunite with their adoptive support group. Lexi was able to spend time with other children that were adopted from China. The Smiths receive a great deal of love, support and education from this tight knit group.

From this worker’s assessment, this placement has been very successful. The family has adapted and bonded even closer since this worker’s last visit. The Smiths have created a very loving and nurturing home environment for Lexi. The entire family has made this transition with grace and has maintained a wonderful support system. This worker recommends the continued placement of Lexi in the Smith’s home.”


I never expected reading the final document would bring tears to my eyes and such joy in my heart. It brings me much happiness not only to have Lexi Jayne in our life but also that we have the love and support of our family and friends.  We are so blessed.

She is blessed to have you all as well and what a wonderful thing too share your lives with her as she grew in your heart from day one of your journey. God's plan has been fulfilled as you were hand picked for Lexi long before she was born!
