"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

Adopting from China by Kailey

Our 8 year old daughter, Kailey, wrote the following at school last month for a writing assignment:


Do you like babies?  If so you would like this story.  My family looked at the computer for a new family member. They found a little boy.  A couple days later they found another little boy. We got them from China.  We brought them home in ******.

My mom looked on the computer and saw them. My mom and dad had to sign a lot of papers. It happened on November 17th and 19th.


She is such a sweet girl who has taken quite a liking and motherlyness to her new little brothers. I am touched by how often she writes about our adoption experiences. It is neat to see the process through her eyes.

Hope you enjoy it!


  1. Oh Tracy! This is so precious! I can't wait to see the choices she makes as an adult.. Seems there might be an adoption in her future! Praise god!
