“Our first kids were grown and gone – one married and one in the US Marines. My sister had adopted a baby from China and would share the Children’s Hope newsletter with us. I saw a picture of two older kids and thought ‘what if?’ I thought I was safe, my husband would never go for such a crazy idea. Well he thought it was actually a pretty great idea. Not a way to limit our lives, but a way to expand in many directions. He was right, but it wasn’t all sunshine and roses. Just like with our first kids, some days were diamonds, some days were stones. But we would do it all again in a New York minute! Absolutely.
