Video: Finding our Daughter Ariana in Kazakhstan

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman April 20, 2015

Ariana’s family found her in Kazakhstan. They adjusted to each other quickly and the relationships they’ve formed are as thick as if they were biological family. The paperwork, choosing, matching, waiting . . . it all seems minuscule compared with the giant gift of family that is created from all that hard work.

Ariana is comfortable with Mom and with Dad and loves all the attention lavished on her. And Ariana gives as much as she receives. Her contagious laughter is a gift to her parents and all who are in earshot! The smile that accompanies her laugh is warm and infectious. This family created through adoption is truly blessed.
