A Place to Visit, Stories of Family

An excerpt from Eric’s story, submitted on WACAP’s Success Stories Web Page

Sucess Stories bannerI was adopted on my second day of life, May 8, 1989. My parents had almost given up adopting another child when a representative of WACAP contacted them and said they had a boy waiting for them at Centralia General Hospital. … While not blood related, they are my parents …  They taught me how to be a good person, to help people who needed it, to work hard for the things you want in life and to strive for success. I carry my last name with immense pride. …

Family are the people that care for you and love you unconditionally. I’m glad to have learned that through my parents. ~Eric

We hope you’ll visit this special collection of essays and reflections, submitted by moms and dads, sons and daughters, and join them in celebrating the gift of family.
