Adopting School-Aged Siblings

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman December 11, 2014

This family of 7 is united, bound together through adoption. All five children were adopted: two from China, and three siblings form Bulgaria. The children each of individual likes and dislikes, but it’s clear they all love family.

Mom tells us there is a lot of laughing and a lot of patience in adopting and raising a family. Dad says, “Be ready for anything!” The oldest, Leah, says to all who are considering adopting, “It’s a good choice.”

The video was created by Spence-Chapin Adoption Services, located in New York and New Jersey. They are committed to the entire adoption triad: birth parents, adoptive parents, and children.
