an amazing story

in Meridian magazine. Because Skywalker and I are saving up to adopt from Ethiopia, this has special significance. We're waiting to start until we've got $10,000 saved up... and living frugally so that we can.

This article also hit home, for me at least,because we're debating between 1 or 2 children. This program (AFAA) is the one that we're going to try to go through. With their program, you only spend $4,000 more if you adopt a second child. If there's room for one, there's room for 6, right? Anyway, it's a good read... very touching.

Thnaks for the link. I have friends that want to adopt, so I'll send it to them, too.

I think that it is so great that you are working on trying to adopt. And to me it really doesn't matter where the child is from. I am in no condition to adopt, yet. I'm presently living in a 2 bedroom apartment with 3 girls. Soon as I have my house I'm planning on being a foster parent.

'anks...

we're not in a position to adopt, yet, either... but we're working on it, just like you're thinking of foster parenting. Which I think is an AMAZING thing to do. Good for you.
