Helping Out

About this time last year some friends of ours began the vigorous, yet rewarding journey of adoption. They documented their adventures here so that we could all learn and experience it vicariously through them. I believe it takes a special person to adopt, one that I admire and respect so much. It takes a very selfless person to seek out to help a child that might otherwise go unnoticed most of their life. Cara and Jason's story brought many a tear to my eye because of their unbridled determination and devotion. This little boy faced much uncertainly and it just warms my heart to know that he was blessed to get to come to such a wonderful family.

I recently came across the blog of Josh and Rachel, who are unable to have children of their own and are therefore looking to adopt a child from Korea. Having learned of the tremendous costs associated with adoption from Cara and Jason, I could completely understand and sympathize with their efforts to raise funds to aid them in their quest. I just wanted to provide you with the link to their story and blog in case you too feel compelled to help.
