Officially One Less

What a true miracle I get to be a part of here today.  My son is orphan no more!  We completed the paperwork and he is officially a Straight forever.  We wrapped up the day with a Skype video call with Rob, Ian's advocate and warrior for Christ.  How amazing that my son has found his way home to us, all because of one young man, Rob a volunteer for Bring Me Hope, who cared so much for him after just one week of knowing Ian.  And yes, now I know just how special Ian is thanks to Rob...what a modern day miracle!! 
Thanks be to God for His guidance and blessings throughout Ian's story :)

Praise Him! I remember those first emails with Rob and working with him to get that post just right to tell people about YOUR son. So thankful your family took that step of faith and have made ONE MORE child with a forever family, ONE LESS orphan in the world.
