20 Mar Brandy
Brandy fostered Alex for over two years while working on reunification with his birth mother. Over the two year period, Brandy established a very unique mentoring relationship with Alex’s birth mother, and quickly became a positive, supportive person in this young woman’s life. She had never had a relationship like this before.
Despite the fact that reunification efforts weren’t successful, Brandy has ensured Alex’s birth mother that she will be part of Alex’s life. Even though it was very difficult for her to relinquish custody of her child, she knew this is the right decision for Alex.
Brandy was able to officially adopt Alex on April 09, 2009. Brandy and Alex are smiling so big because this picture was taken right after his adoption became final.
Alex’s birth mother was present at his adoption, supporting and celebrating with Brandy and Alex!
