In the summer of 2009, Tim and Renee adopted two siblings from China through WACAP. They had learned about two older girls in need of adoption earlier that year and officially accepted the match of their two daughters in the spring. Overjoyed, they welcomed Esmée (age 6) and Willa (age 5) home in July, “truly a wondrous pair of girls,” their parents say.
Earlier this year, as a school project, Esmée, now 9 years old, surprised her family with her story of being adopted. Narrated and illustrated from her perspective, she writes about meeting her family and traveling with her sister to come home. Thank you, Esmée, for inspiring us with your story and your creativity.
