My boys are both from Thailand. Both waited years in an orphanage in Thailand. They waited for families. Sarah was abandoned when she was a day old because she was a girl. This story makes me sad...but it's the culture in China. That's how it is. I understand it, but I don't like it. There are so many waiting boys, but people feel like they must make designer boys. We have not learned to value what is there! I know it's not that simple. But why create more boys, why not value the ones already born? If a Thai family wants a boy, why make one…why not adopt one? When we didn’t have this technology, they would consider adoption. They would consider loving a boy with a minor special need. But now they can pay the money, and get a designer baby. And all the children that would have been loved just wait….sometimes forever!
My kids were not designed by a Dr, they were designed by God himself. They were fearfully and wonderfully made. I’m not agents invetro (well, not 100% agents it…I personally would never do it). But if you have birth children, why finish your family with invetro? Adoption is such a miracle…why not participate in another kind of miracle? Why do children wait…and our answer is just make more children`
