Sara and her husband were parents to 5 beautiful children when their faith lead them on a path that resulted in the adoption of two children from China. From the start they knew that both children had disabilities but their immediate love for them, made the decision easy, even if the process wasn’t always.
Sally was their first adoption and underwent surgery within weeks of arriving in the US, but it was Charlie that proved to them that miracles can and do happen. On this podcast Sara discusses how her faith has influenced her decisions throughout life and especially when adopting, and the importance of redefining things for your adoptive children whether they are from the US or abroad.
Sara is the author of “A Cord of Three Strands” and “A Broken Mirror,” which are adoption based and must reads if you enjoy adoption stories.
In this episode we discuss:
*The importance of helping children born abroad reconnect with their heritage
*What are the financial expectations when adopting from China
*How to deal with the abandonment issues that may arise
*Advice on how to deal with the challenges of bringing home a toddler
