Adopted Family Relishes Thanksgiving

November 25, 2010 § Leave a comment

” It was definitely the worst moment in our lives, I think, when we found out about the earthquake … We’d just been there over the Christmas holiday. They were our children, and we were getting ready to welcome them home.” — Lisa Scoppa
In January, Lisa Scoppa and her husband, Duke, were in the process of adopting two young Haitian children when the news struck that Port-au-Prince had been hit by a devastating earthquake. The Scoppas feared their children were lost, but after several anxious days, discovered they had been evacuated to Florida. Now, ten months later, the family is together for their first Thanksgiving and the two kids, Therline and Erikson, are officially U.S. citizens. (wnyc)
