13, Photo by Dana Lunden - Photos by Design ... FOUND A FAMILY!
We were recently alerted that this friendly and outgoing
teen found her family through the Heart Gallery Tampa Bay.
A note from her new adoptive mother:
We could not imagine our home without Jessica in it now.
We are truly blessed by having been given this opportunity!
The heart gallery was our first awareness's of the foster
care system in Hillsborough County so please keep it going!
This is a fantastic way to show the public a great need
that they can get involved with!
Wherever you can use us to show the extreme value of the
Heart Gallery and how blessed we were by it and Camelot,
just let us know.
Jessica also tells us she is always available to sign
autographs when requested......(see what a publicly displayed
beautiful picture will do to the ego of a 13 year old girl??
We took Jessica this weekend to the Brandon Mall and got
pictures of her standing beside her picture. We'll be adding
this to her scrapbook. We "borrowed" a match ribbon
from another child's picture for just a moment because she
wanted it taken with her to show she found a family.
Please don't ever stop believing in what you do each and
every day for these children and for families like ours.
I truly believe God was having a wonderful day when he designed
all of you!
My husband and I also took a moment to see all the new
faces while we were there. Maybe our family will be growing
again one day soon...... :-)
