Anne of Green Gables

“I don’t want sunbursts or marble halls, I just want you.” -Anne Shirley

Tattered and well-loved, tear-stained and dog-eared, this is where it all began. Best read with tissue close at hand, Anne of Green Gables changed our lives. Thank you Anne with an “E” for teaching us that adoption is love and that our own Gilbert Blythe might be standing right before our very eyes. Thank you for reminding us that carrots is a term of endearment and that bosom friends are for life.

We wanted to walk with you by the Lake of Shining Water in puffed sleeves, use big words, and dream big dreams. We will never forget Matthew who loved at first sight and Marilla who loved so fiercely. We learned that when someone believes in us, we can go anywhere and do anything. We cried, we laughed, we stayed up all night to finish. And then we started over from the beginning again.
