Late last week, after months of trying to find our little friend Rong his forever family, our Waiting Child Team was nearly complete with the process of gathering his information so they could return it to China. Just prior to hitting send … the phone rang.
On the line was a family asking about Rong! They said that they had seen his profile on CCAI’s website and knew it was to be returned soon with several other child files, and hoped they weren’t too late. They said they prayed for them all, hoping each would find their family, and they just had to ask about Rong. And they made it in the nick of time!
With just one day to make a decision before the Waiting Child team would be required to officially send his file back to China, the family went like mad calling all specialists they could. It wasn’t until the sign they had been asking for arrived in the form of a DING on their computer which was an email from the Waiting Child team! They had sent the family some new information as well as a slew of new images and a new video.
“When we saw his video, that was it, we knew he was our son,” they said. “We knew it was right because of the peace that came over us after the decision had been made.”
Congratulations to Rong and his new forever family! We couldn’t be happier for you all and wish you all a safe and peaceful remainder to your journey!
