Another Parent Extends Her Hand

Yesterday I went up to my school to complete some paperwork for the summer program I run in August. In my box I found the sweetest note from a parent of one of my 09-10 students (Mrs. E.). She adopted her daughter from China and is involved in the local adoption community. In fact, she is a board member of the local chapter of Families with Children from China.

Apparently, the group is slowly reaching out to include families with children from several other countries which includes Korea. Mrs. E offered to be a resource for me and went to so far as to say she would "be honored" to do so. She included her phone number and I plan to take her up on her offer by next week at the latest.

We are so blessed by all of the support that we have received. Much of it has come from expected sources, our loving friends and family, but then there are these more out of the blue offers of help as well. One of my friends commented on her belief in fate and how these extensions of support are proof that this is what God had intended. Certainly food for thought as our circle broadens.
