FC: The Story of our Family
1: Craig, Jamie and Ruemer
2: Our Message To You: Our names are Craig and Jamie, and we want to thank you for looking at our photo book and profile and considering us as adoptive parents for your child. We have a four year old daughter named Ruemer whom we adopted, so we know firsthand what a difficult decision you are about to make. We hope that ultimately we can help make it easier for you. We feel that you are brave and courageous, and we truly understand that it takes a Self-Less person to even consider adoption as an option. We will offer your child a place in our hearts and home that will give him or her stability, security and most importantly, love. We are ready to give Ruemer a little brother or sister, and we are all very excited about the new addition we will have in our family. We are from a small rural community in Texas, and we both have lived here all our lives.
3: Our parents and grandparents were also raised here. Craig and I were high school sweethearts and have been married now for thirteen years. We have a large extended family that offer us love and support and are behind us in every aspect of our decision to adopt again. Craig is in the farm and ranching business, and I'm a stay at home Mom. I am thankful to be in the position to spend every day with my daughter. Our faith in God is a very important part of our lives. We go to the church I was raised in, and it's extremely important that those same beliefs be instilled in our children. Craig and I both realize that it's only by God's Grace and love that our lives have been so richly blessed. We know that He is in control , even when there are times that we are not. We hope that this letter gives you a little insight to us and what we are about. To learn more about us, please read our profile and call us through Everlasting Adoptions at 1-866-406-2702.

20: Once there were two women who never knew each other. One you do not remember, the other you call Mother. Two different lives shaped to make you one. One became your guiding star, the other became your sun. The first one gave you life, and the second one taught you to live it. The first gave you a need for love. The second was there to give it. One gave you a nationality. The other gave you a name. One gave you a talent. The other gave you aim. One gave you emotions. The other calmed your fears. One saw your first sweet smile. The other dried your tears. One sought for you a home that she could not provide. The other prayed for a child and her hope was not denied. And now you ask me, through your tears,the age-old question unanswered through the years. Heredity or environment, which are you a product of? Neither, my darling. Neither. Just two different kinds of love. | Legacy of an Adopted Child
