Miracles still come true. In 1991 and 1995 my wife and I were contacted by GENESIS of Pittsburgh Executive Director Carole McMahon for meetings to discuss our volunteer activities. Over several years we had Chaired the Furniture and Equipment program for the agency. We had Chaired several Adopted Family Fellowship Picnics and Breakfasts with Santa in Eastern Allegheny County. Both of us served as tutors in the Education Program to keep GENESIS residents up with their classmates. These two meetings were different than most. At the end of the 1991 meeting, Carole pulled out a set of footprints and said "I'll be back tomorrow with your son." After the 1995 meeting Carole said "I'll be back tomorrow with your daughter." These two magical sentences changed our lives forever. After years of trying to have children and to adopt children, these two sentences made us parents and created a family. GENESIS of Pittsburgh has spent over thirty years making dreams come true.
