Life isn’t fair, but sometimes it gives us second chances. Today in church, with joy and sorrow, we said good-bye to Alasaia. Tomorrow morning she will join her “forever family”. Alasaia is being adopted.
As sorry as we are to see her go, our hearts are filled with joy that this small girl-child, born addicted to meth and with the odds for a stable home stacked highly against her, is joining a family who will provide her with two parents and siblings. Life does not come with guarantees of happiness, but happiness is more easily found when one is wanted and loved. Alasaia’s adoption is an answer to prayer.
This picture of O’Ceallaigh and Alasaia was taken last weekend.
