November is National Adoption Month and we are celebrating families all across New Jersey who have opened their hearts and homes to children in need to provide a loving, safe, and nurturing environment.

We'd like to share with you, Peter and Lia's story. 

Peter and Lia came to work with LSMNJ's Adoption Program in the hopes of growing their family by offering children in need a loving and stable home.  The couple had already adopted their 18-month-old daughter as an infant and was working with another agency when they learned of LSMNJ's Waiting Child Program. Within four months of being approved by LSMNJ, Peter and Lia were matched with not one, but four children - three girls and a boy, ages 3-8. Doubling their family in the blink of an eye!

Adoption is never easy and this match was no exception. The children had come from an abusive and severely neglected environment. Each child had significant educational and developmental gaps resulting from poor exposure, lack of care, and multiple placements.
