"I always wondered, what kind of bond would I have? How would that child take to me and my wife? And then they showed us a little picture and she had a big smile on her face and my wife and I looked at each other and said we’d like to adopt her."

"You need to give a child a lot of love, affection and attention. Make sure you nurture that child. A child doesn’t want materialistic things. That child wants to know that it’s loved and you’re there for them and will keep them safe."

"And the authorities were really good. Any issues we had with things we weren’t sure how to deal with They were there to support us 100%."
