One Year a Family

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman December 16, 2014

Set to sweet music, this photo montage following a young family of two American parents and two beautiful adopted Chinese daughters is moving and inspiring. The photos take us from China to the court house and through a year of life and growth.

U.S. adoptions from China have steadily been dropping over the last decade. But this family’s work towards creating their family is motivating and encouraging. The Schuster Institute reports that historically, China has had a good track record with inter-country adoptions. International adoption with various countries continues to be a regular source for helping create American families.
