We’ve been asked how we got started with adoption, and how we came upon adopting blind children, so we went back to tell some of the story.
In this episode, we talk about our how we came to adopt Bethany, who was born with ROP, (Retinopathy of Prematurity).
We considered adopting Bethany from Thailand when she was 3 years old, but were not considered because we were “too old” and had “too many kids”. A few years later, when she was 7, we got a call from the agency that had placed her in another family, and asked if we were still interested in adopting her. Of course we were!
Bethany is our sixth adopted child.
