A Special Thank You♥Gracias

We were blessed to have the best Foster Family for Sophia. Since Sophia has been home we have continued contact with them weekly. They have become a part of our family. They have been a wealth of information to us and have been able to tell us about Sophia's first 13 months that we missed and they have been able to send us pictures from that time as well. We are very lucky and honored to call them a part of our famiy.

The weekend after they gave Sophia to us, they ran in a Marathon, and won a medal. They told us they wanted Sophia to have that medal since thinking of her gave them the strength to run it.

Thursday of last week we got the mail and were so excited to find a small package from them, we knew it was the medal and Frank and I were both so excited. But what we didn't know is in with the medal was a birthday card for Katelyn and a beautiful necklace. We both were in tears. It is stunningly beautiful and she was so excited to have it.

Iris de gracias y Marcial para afiliarse a nuestra familia y para hacer el cumpleaños de Katelyn especial y para enviar la medalla a Sophia. Lo atesoraremos y ella se honra de tenerlo. Usted es ambos una bendición a todos nosotros. ¡Amamos a ustedes ambos muchísimo!

WOW!! Tears. How wonderful for you to have such wonderful foster parents. We too had wonderful foster parents. Haven't kept in touch much, but we just sent pics of Reese to them.

A teenager!! Oh, I am so sorry!

Sophia will cherish that medal in the years to come.

That is so special!! I have been able to keep in touch with Madi's foster family too.

And it is good that you can find out about your daughters first 13mths. That is something I will always wonder about with Madi.

I get goosebumps. That is so sweet and sentimental. We were blessed with a wonderful foster family too. We keep in touch with via e-mail and I send them things on holidays, but just every few months. It is very special to be able to keep in touch with people that knew your child as an infant.
