An Adoption that changed a family's life!

Several months ago we came across the IBR site. Our lives have not been the same since we saw Libbys photo on PetFinder.
When we decided to try to adopt Libby back in July and were approved we sent out the following announcement by email to all of our friends--

My wife and I have been discussing a very important issue. We have been talking about adoption. I know, all of you are thinking why would someone their age even think about adoption. Well you have not met Libby. She is a beautiful girl with pretty eyes and a face that would melt the best of us. When we heard about her and her situation we didn't have to think twice. We have filled out the adoption papers and have the preliminary approvals. It looks as though we will be going to the Chicago suburbs this weekend to bring this gorgeous little 3 year old home with us. We cant wait.

Of course we attached Libby's photo at that time

So, we did adopt this poor little lost soul. She was so scared when she came to us. I have attached a photo of her first day in the back yard.

She has come a long way since July.

So have my wife and I.

IBR has changed our life in such a good way. The joy and love that we have received from all of our foster dogs is something that can not be expressed in words. Simon, Watson, Brighton, and now Candice. We see no end.

If anyone out there is considering being a foster home, don't think twice about it.The rewards are greater then you would ever believe.

I know that IBR is always in search of foster homes for all of the dogs that they save.
You could be one of those homes.

Try it. There will be no regrets.

To all of the fosters, transporters, and volunteers that help out IBR, keep up the great work. You all know what I am talking about.

Lisa, you have touched so many lives and saved so many dogs. Your rewards are the greatest of all. Success makes for happiness.

You must be very happy.

Don't ever stop.

Greg and Patricia Holden
