I could see Lilly across the room in her "Nanny's" arms. She did not cry when handed to me. I was a mess of happy tears. When we arrived home & watched the video of "Gotcha Day". It was then that I saw the most meaningful moment. As her "Nanny" placed her in my arms, she broke down in tears. I knew she had been loved and taken care of.
From the Graduate
Adoption has provided me with a world of opportunities: a great education, a fulfilling life, and an amazing family. Without my parent's decision to adopt, my life would truly be unknown. I am extremely grateful for the life I have been provided. I have learned that nothing in life is guaranteed and to take advantage of the opportunities given to me.
Lilly graduated high school within the top 10% of her class and has accrued at least 450 hours worth of community service. She has been a competitive dancer for 16 years and played basketball since she was in Kindergarten. In her senior year of high school, she has become a certified EMT Basic. She plans to attend Texas Tech in the fall to study biology and hopefully become a cardiac surgeon.
