Adoption, there’s nothing like it…
It is God-Designed and overwhelmingly beautiful! We never tire or cease to be amazed at the quiet joy a family revels in when a child is placed in their arms.
It doesn’t get old; watching a child – abandoned, forgotten, set aside – find hope, belonging and a new last name in just one moment. It’s what we live for. What we aim for. What we will never stop striving for…
Adoption, there’s nothing like it!
At Botshabelo, we’re celebrating our 100th adoption since opening in March 2000!
This sweet little princess (above) has been fully welcomed into her new Forever Family – with lots of hugs and kisses! It was a wonderful moment as we watched her settle into her mom’s arms. She may not have known the significance of her adoption in that moment, but we certainly did!
Nicky Martin (Babies Home Manager) said that this adoption is the best one she has had the privilege to be a part of – there was such a joy and peace throughout the time. There was a real connection between our hearts and the family’s and the moment was ended in prayer. We know that every adoption is a special occasion, but knowing this was a major milestone for us made it that much sweeter!
In 17 years, we have seen 100 faces light up as they look fully into a life of belonging and hope. 100 healthy, happy children placed in loving arms. We are humbled to have played a part in 100 Forever Afters. Honoured to have been able to prepare 100 little hearts for their new adventure of FAMILY.
We are forever grateful for this opportunity, calling and mission.
To those that started up this Babies Home, and to those carrying out the task today. To those that sowed financially right at the beginning, and to those that give sacrificially even now. To those that have given advice, support and encouragement, and to those that have given nappies, formula and wet wipes. To the leaders of Botshabelo. To the adoption agencies we work with. To the staff of yesterday, and the staff of today. To God, our guide, our hope, our Light…
