Why We went internationl:
For us it just made sense. We both have had India on our hearts since our yr. 2000 mission trips and we plan on eventually living there as missionaries. We love India, the people are so warm and beautiful. The country is so interesting.
Many people have shared their hopes that we adopt a child from the states, which makes sense...this is our country. There is a need for US adoptions but after researching adoption our eyes and hearts fell upon the countries where it is an actual crisis. We were able to watch a few adopton documentaries and have seen orphanges lined from wall to wall w/ cribs of lonely chidren- reaching for the camera man as he passed by. It is the norm to see orphans wandering the streets in many countries. Of course w/ millions of orphans the burden is overwhelming- I know it is a cliche but, it really does make a difference in the life of one child...wonder if it was you?
