An Adoption Story

We’d like to share this adoption story with our readers.

When I was 5 months old, the two people who conceived me sat in an office somewhere and signed away their rights to raise me. They opted out of the chances to hold me, comfort me and watch me grow. They gave up the opportunity to know me. I don’t assume that was an easy decision to make, but they must have felt it was the right one. Whether or not they wanted influence in my life, their decision that day made a lasting impression. Learn more.

Inspiring Adoption Story

We enjoyed this inspiring adoptions story.

In 2005, I traveled to China with my cousin, who is a single mom. It was a big trip, because she had adopted a 9-month-old baby girl, and was finally bringing her home. The group we were traveling with included a lot of families picking up their daughters, so I had a lot of down time on my own.   

I spent a lot of time chatting with our travel guide, Jack, and asking him questions about the adoption process in China. Adoption has always been something I was curious about. I’m adopted, my brother is adopted, and there’s a lot of international adoption in our family — it’s abnormal if you’re not adopted! In fact, one of my other cousins has five Chinese daughters. Learn more.
