Ellen Ticket Noification ‘Today we saw love win.’
Description


“Today was a big day for me and my girl but it wasn’t just about the two of us. Sure, our lives are the most dramatically changed through this adoption but Wren’s story is far reaching. We’ve all heard the saying, ‘it takes a village’

Well it’s true! I’ve often said that when I signed up for foster care, I signed up for the heartache and pain that often come with it. But my family and friends didn’t sign those papers, just me.

I just drug them all into it. They’ve been through the ups and downs with me. They’ve supported me when I called crying after court hearings or given me a shoulder to cry on when I’ve had to buckle kids in their car seat and send them off with another family to love.

They have fallen in love with these kids and they have prayed big prayers for us all. They have stepped up and filled in the gaps for the roles I can’t be to these kids.

Today they cried great big tears and they celebrated alongside us! I’m so grateful for my friends and family, those there today and those who could not be with us but were in spirit!

I would not be where I am today without my village and words can’t express how much you mean to us! Thank you for bringing Vera Wren into our tribe and loving her like your own!”
