November 2009 ~ We had to decide whether we wanted to adopt internationally or domestic (US). We received a few packets of information by mail and email and began to read through stacks of paper. We both really felt that there are so many children right here at home that need a loving, Christian home. Once we had made that decision, choosing the best agency for us was pretty easy. We chose to work with an agency that only works with Christian families and whose fees were based on income~rather than certain fees per child based on race. From the beginning of our contact with this agency, we have felt that they place more concern on the best needs of the birthmother, children, and adoptive families than on the fees. I pray that this early impression stays true throughout our journey.
