One couple shares their experience adopting older children.  At first, they were thrilled with their circumstances with their careers and their dogs, but they felt the pull to create a family.  So the journey began.  It was tough, it was challenging, and it was rewarding and joyful beyond what they could have imagined.

This family says that flexibility is required; willingness is essential.  Watching their children come in to their own, blossoming and learning to trust, love and grow, has touched their hearts and help solidify family ties.  After three years, comfort levels in the home have increased and the entire family is now thriving.
