” I just wanted to tell you how wonderful the last 10 years have been with my son. He was adopted from Romania in 2000. What a joy he has been to our family. He is now 11, almost 12 and would love to be 13. He loves music and art. School, not so much. He is very social. We have traveled to D.C. to the Embassy party almost every year. We have met lots of people and learned a lot about Romanian culture. Thank you Children’s House International for bringing us together and enriching our lives through our son. I am thankful that you continue to help families fulfill their dreams. Take care and Happy New Year!”
– Nancy, adopted from Romania
