International Adoption: Connecting Us All


Denalee Chapman October 29, 2014

Annette Seaver has 12 children: Seven are biological and five are adopted. Of her adopted children, four were adopted internationally. I sat down with her and asked how she is able to keep the various cultures alive for the children. Her answers made a lot of sense. She then shared why international adoption has been good not only for her, but why it is good for the world.
