Sister Diane Hallstrom on Her Adoption

Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman March 20, 2015

Adopted decades ago, Diane Hallstrom shares her honest and heartfelt experience with interviewer, Sheri Dew.

Bold and miraculous circumstances surround the miracle of Diane’s adoption. Her parents — unable to have biological children — adopted a son. And then, two-and-a-half years later they began their search for another child. They were hopeful about a daughter. Time passed, and no child came to their home. Eventually her father exercised great boldness by contacting a well-known LDS church authority. This led to the miraculous adoption of Diane.

Raised with high morals in a loving family, Diane Hallstrom is indeed grateful.

This interview originally took place on the Mormon Channel.
