I can't believe my DH!!

I've always known that I wanted to adopt. I just felt that there are so many children out there that need homes and we could provide for one of them. But my DH was always saying he didn't want to raise someone else's child. Well last night HBO had a program on China's lost children..not to go into detail but my DH started looking up international adoption!! I'm so excited as I have been praying about this for a long time. We aren't going to start yet but in a few years, I'm just so excited and wanted to share with you ladies!

How wonderful that his heart is opening to adoption! I don't think China is closed, but it having extreme slowdowns.

I think they have a limit on how many children you can have and the age of parents to. I wanted to adopt from China so bad but they have so many limits. Its to bad because they have alot of kids in need. My brother works over their and he says its truely sad situation.
