The Perfect Christmas Present

With Christmas arriving tomorrow, we thought it would be a great idea to share a story of one of our EAC family members and how they received their child right before Christmas!  Meet the Robins and this is their story:

After we adopted our 2nd daughter from Vietnam, we knew we weren’t done! After writing “3rd Baby” on the tub of infant clothes, it was only a matter of time. And three years later we began the process of adoptiong our third daughter, this time from Guatemala.

After our dossier was in, we happily accepted the referral of our daughter on my birthday! What a gift! 7 weeks later, I was on my way to Guatemala for a visit trip! In town, my mom, sister, and mother-in-law. It was an incredible experience to share with all of them and one we will always remember.

The trip was incredibly easy and our daughter was beautiful and very healthy! The information we received from her foster mother was not only helpful but encouraging. She was receiving excellent care and meeting her foster mother relieved any worry I had about her care during my absence. The obvious bonds these babies establish with thier foster mother really helps nourish the ability for these babies to establish strong bonds quickly with their adoptive parents.

Of course, the wait for our daughter to come home was a little less than anticipated! Arriving home on December 23rd, Sophia became a wonderful Christmas present for us and her big sisters Brenda (6) and Juleie (3)! Her arrival was as smooth as the first two and it’s like she’s always been here. Her health is excellent as is her demeanor. Her big brown eyes and dimpled smile melt our hearts and anyone that sees her.

Thanks again EAC for giving us the opportunity to expand our family to 5!
You did it again!
