decisions, decisions...

Since the wait has been so long for our China adoption, we are considering starting a second adoption. It's so difficult to know what to do for sure. We would be happy with one child but yet feel like it would be nice for our child to have at least one sibling. If we wait until our China adoption goes through then we will be even older and not sure about going through the whole process of starting another adoption. It's hard to decide where to adopt from. Our adoption agency started another agency that works with the countries of Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Mexico. There are some financial breaks if we decide to go with this new agency since we are already in the process with the China adoption. Of course, there is always domestic adoption as well. So there is much to consider and many prayers being said as we discern God's will of what is best for us.

Hi Mary! Could you send me your e-mail address again. I tried sending you an email tonite but I must not be remembering the address correctly! Thanks!

Good luck with all your decisions. A friend of mine adopted a baby a year ago who was from an Ethiopian family. The baby had Downs and tradition means that the family has to send the baby to a different place. My friend is a special needs teacher and so she was contacted about this baby. They were also looking to adopt a baby from Mexico, but it was very hard to adopt from there. They still keep in contact with this little girl. I think it was through something called Gabriel's House. She is also a special needs child. Will be praying for God's will in all of this!
