Editor's Note: Window on the Clearwater has joined the Wednesday's Child network to help spread the word about children that are waiting for families to give them the loving care that they need. Each Wednesday we will profile a different child. For more information about Wednesday's Child and how you can be involved check the web site at: http://www.idahowednesdayschild.org/.
Success Story: A Family for Always
Dezerea & Damien
Dezerea and Damien just completed transitional visits with their adoptive family in their new beginnings in western Oregon. The family selected has no other children, so they will be able to have the undivided attention they so well deserve. The family has an extensive family support system with a lot of other same-age cousins.
Dezerea and Damien will continue enjoying the country lifestyle they became accustomed to while in their most recent foster care placement, i.e. horses, dogs, and tons of outdoor activities, including continued involvement with 4-H projects. The foster family was very instrumental in the transition process and supported the childrens 'permission' to attach to their new family; especially since there were so many similarities with their family.
Recently, while on a family outdoor outing, Dezerea wrote the following in a near-by snow bank with a small tree branch... "I love my new family."

Every young person deserves a place to call home and the support of caring adults.
