The Power of Family

WACAP believes in the power of family to transform lives.

Mia, before finding her family

We get to witness this transformation time and time again, as we see children come home to loving families. Mia recently came home to her family, joining her brother Maddox, whom we met in 2012. Her transition from life in an orphanage in India, to life with a mom, dad, and brother, is a perfect example of the power of family. Mia’s mom writes:

I just wanted to share our new family pictures. We cannot believe Mia has been home for five months already! She is doing great! She met the rest of her family last week and they all love her so much. She saw the ocean for the first time and giggled every step through the small waves! She is doing great and is the biggest blessing to our family!!
