Our Two Little Celebrities!

Two of our little Superkids have been in the news this week. They were both adopted through Gladney's China program and we are so proud of them and of their families!

We first met them when they were less than a year old. Each time we returned to China we saw them and eventually their files were prepared and we began to advocate for them. You may have seen them here on the blog as Alice and Levi, now Hannah and Dawson. And now their story (and their precious little giggles) is being heard all over the nation and around the world.

The first time we met them!
You see, these two were best friends in China. I remember messaging with Hannah's mom while they were in China to adopt Hannah.  That day they had seen Hannah tell Dawson good-bye. She said, "We have to find him a family!" And she helped to make that happen. She posted about him on her own Facebook page and friends of hers saw it and showed it to their friends, the Clarys. They say the decision was made almost immediately to adopt Dawson. But here is the part that is so amazing! The Clarys and the Sykes live only a few miles apart. They did not know each other before the Clarys decided to adopt Dawson, but now the two families say they are like family.

Hannah and Dawson were reunited in the Dallas/Fort Worth airport last Thursday. The video shot by Sharron Sykes was so sweet that people around the world have watched it and the families have been on the Dallas news and Good Morning America. As they share their story the beautiful message of adoption is being heard loud and clear across the world.

Just watch it! You won't be sorry! And please share their story. It is so powerful and full joy!
