Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman April 20, 2015

It begins with desire, followed by search, followed by (what seems like) endless paperwork and home studies. But finally, the dossier is complete. And the fun begins! Stephanie Karp shares their family’s journey from paperwork to finding their child.

Their son was in Kazakhstan, and no place was too far to find him and bring him home. Getting past the newness, then developing trust and love, their family grows. When the adoption is finalized, the family is grateful, joyous, and at peace. Every family member is vested in solidifying the relationship and really making the family complete. Love is the glue for this family.
