This blog is dedicated to Reagan Dawn Boxdorfer and Maneka Hope Boxdorfer (aka Maneka Shaniqua Sha Nae Nae, 'Neka Hope).
These two girls gave me my first experiences as a nanny, taught me how to love, helped me develop patience, and were a shining ray of light in my life from the day I met them. Reagan was adopted from the United States and Maneka, from India. The two sisters couldn't be more different from one another, but both share a special place in my heart that God reserved specifically for them.
After hearing her adoption story, Reagan would tell her mom, "I'm your angel, straight from heaven." And she was sure to remind all of us, especially when she wasn't particularly happy with one of us, that she was "an angel straight from heaven!" I will never forget her little four-year-old voice making such a true declaration. She was sent straight from heaven, to the Boxdorfer family, to me, and to everyone in her world.
