I have known it in my heart for so long but today it is a fact - Cate was the trigger that changed a life. I wrote more about it a while back in this post. The basics are that Cate's beloved pre-K teacher Ms Beth was introduced to Reeces's Rainbow when she attended the Buddy Walk as part of Cate's Crusaders. That introduction got her thinking about adopting a child with special needs and last year she began the journey to find her forever son.
Ms Beth was instrumental in Cate's successful start at school both with her teaching and her help in advocating with me. I visited Ms. Beth the day before she left on her trip to deliver a few books to add to his new room. I was lucky enough to see the pictures she'd been sent of a happy, adorable 6 year old boy just waiting across the ocean for "his turn".
Today it became official as she welcomed "Bobby Guanxiong" into her family. I am overcome with happiness for this family and proud of tiny part Cate played in it. We are praying that Beth, Taylor and Bobby have a great week getting to know each other and that they have safe trip back home this weekend. If you'd like to learn more about the journey visit her blog at Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust.
