I Like Adoption

A family of Adoption Rockstars

Jessalynn Speight January 17, 2014

Seriously, these parents are amazing.

First of all you can tell how much these parents love each of their NINE kids.

THEN you can tell how much each of these kids love their parents.

It is obvious the children know that without their parents they would not be where they are today. These parents deserve everything in the world, but you can tell the love and joy of family is enough for them. Adopting ONE child with special needs is one thing– adopting several is a whole other ballpark. These parents have love, patience, kindness, and understanding– and the siblings also have a tangible love for each other.

International adoption is becoming less and less popular. According to Adoption.State.Gov, In 2005 there were 22734 international adoptions. In 2012 there were 8668 international adoption.
