“Our registration process was easy and informative. Everyone was so helpful and kind. I was afraid we wouldn’t have all the documents, but I was fully prepared thanks to your kind information beforehand. Our daughter was so happy and though we both shed a tear when we parted, I left her in good hands and felt even more assured God lead us to the right place. Thank you again.”
