Real Life Story

<p>"Adopt America's Children (AAC) Is about Family" <br /><br />AAC has supported children and families for more than 40 years. This story by Marion Hackett reminds us how much our dedication matters to those we serve: <br /><br />"Mark and I decided to become foster parents three years into our marriage. On May 28, a beautiful, healthy, 10-week-old baby named Jared entered our lives. After he was in our home 15 months, Jared's birth parents gave up their legal rights. <br /><br />"During this time, Jared developed many medical challenges: treatment for leukemia, remission and relapse; a bone-marrow transplant, remission and relapse. Having a sick child is stressful; working with a non-supportive agency made it more stressful. The best thing our former agency did was to refer our case to AAC. <br /><br />"Despite the trials, there was never a question in our minds. We would adopt Jared. A few days after Jared's transplant, two AAC caseworkers were at our home. <br /><br />"For AAC, it was never about 9 to 5. We could reach our caseworker at any time. Everyone knew how important it was to Jared and to us to become a 'legal' family. The average adoption can take up to a year. AAC completed Jared's in less than 30 days. <br /><br />"Two years after Jared entered the Hackett's lives, on April 1, Mark and Marion Hackett had a son, Jared McKenna Hackett. Their time together was short. A brain tumor took Jared's life at age 2. <br /><br />"We gave Jared life during those precious two years. AAC is about life. AAC is about family."</p>
