The Thurwalker family hosted this beautiful baby girl for the first 5 weeks of her life. Her mother already had an 11-month old and was focusing on her college career. She knew she couldn’t financially support another baby but she needed time to contemplate the decision of adoption.
Once the selfless decision was made, the Thurwalkers continued to care for the baby until an adoptive family was chosen. Not only did they love, care for and meet her every need but they went above and beyond what was required. They invited the mother into their home whenever she wanted to visit and they also cared for her toddler, giving her time to think through adoption. They even recorded all of the baby’s firsts and provided her parents-to-be with videos, photos, and doctor-records.
The heart-warming photo above was taken on the baby’s last night with the host family. This baby girl will forever have a very special place in the Thurwalkers hearts.
