Claire Bristow-Mazzapesa: A story that touched the heart

March 19, 2014 

I just read “Wish fulfilled to meet sister” (March 17, Page A1) and it started my day off on a tenderhearted note. I don’t know any of these people, but I was touched by the couple who took the time to adopt, raise and love four small children and also opened their home to other foster children. Then, they helped their daughter find her biological sister.

This little girl not only has a new sister to love, she has a great role model who is graduating from college and who showed the tremendous courage it took to enter this little girl’s life. Love – along with strong, loving adoptive families – truly begets love!

How beautiful is that?
