Suzies Adoption

Today I (Lincoln) had the privilege of being part of the adoption of Suzie (not her real name for privacy reasons). She is such a sweetheart, it is bittersweet to see her go. Mostly sweet, though, because she has gone to a wonderful family. This is their third adopted baby from South Africa. They seem like great parents who will provide a good home for Suzie. Suzie has always been one of my favorites (I know I say that about them all) because she is usually smiling. She has just reached the point where she can walk really good and she really moves quickly investigating everything. She is a very happy baby. She went to her new family with no problems at all, eager to play with her new brother and sister. The bottom picture is Nomhle, (pronounced Nome-clay) the managing director of the shelter. She is with Suzie in the room where the family meets the baby for the first time. It was really special to be part of this amazing experience. Posted by Picasa
