Chosen Ones–Albino Children Adopted from China

Kim Anderson talks about adopting the joy of adopting her children from China.

Denalee Chapman November 20, 2014

Chinese children who are albinos can expect pretty much nothing if they are not adopted into a loving home and given a chance.  If they remain in China, there will be no schooling, no work, no marriage and family.  Kim and Steve Anderson have adopted 3 boys from China – all with albinism.

The family works to give their boys a chance at normal life.  With no pigment in their bodies at all, vision is difficult and skin is sensitive.  They take proper precautions and every opportunity to teach their children.  Being homeschooled and having each other helps to create a sense of safety and belonging for these boys.

At age 53, Kim states:  “We can just get old, or we can get old and do something.”
