We tried to adopt domestically and knew there was a strong need for adoptive families for AA and bi-racial children. Often times the agencies ran out of families to present to these Birth Mothers. However, time after time we were told that the birth mother wanted someone without children.
We eventually decided to adopt internationally and found that Ethiopia had a strong need for adoptive families as well. Once our paperwork was completed (which took about 3 months) we waited 10 days and got the call that we had been matched with our beautiful daughter!! 5 months later we had her home in our family! What a blessing she has been to us and to others. Being in Ethiopia for almost 2 weeks was a life changing experience. We could have never made this dream come true without the financial support of Sacred Selections!
