PRINCESS for the Thomas family — NV

Charles and Mary Anne Thomas have been happily married for 20 years. Their lives, like most, have followed a completely different path than planned. When Mary Anne was pregnant with their second son, Bryant, they felt inspired to begin the process of becoming foster parents. They took in their first foster child when Bryant was only 3 months old and they never looked back. The Thomas’s have been foster parents for 16 years now, adopting 4 of the sweet children they fostered, loving the others until they were able to return home to their birth families. At the end of each adoption they thought, “Our family is now complete.” Then another sweet child would be placed in their home that needed a forever family, to which they were happy to provide. They are eternally grateful for each child they now call theirs.

When they saw the picture and read the brief story of Princess they knew right away she was meant to be a part of their family. Charles and Mary Anne have never adopted internationally, nor even looked into it, but that hasn’t deterred them from bringing Princess home. Each of the children in the Thomas family is excited to meet her and call her sister. The children in the Thomas family understand what a blessing having a family truly is, and each of them are always excited to share the joy they felt on their adoption day with other children also looking for a family to love them.
