Blog Highlight – Stolpe Adoption
For those of you who may have missed it, my brother David and his family are preparing to adopt a daughter from China. It is exciting to think that this addition to our extended family may be right around the corner.
David, Rachel, and Sam have been working diligently to prepare for her arrival – painting her room, going through all the paperwork and social worker interviews, and raising money. It is mind boggling to me to think that adopting a child can cost over $30,000. That seems like such a huge amount for a baby who is left in a Chinese orphanage when she could be at a family who already loves her and wants to provide for her and include her in their family. This is certainly one of the imbalances in life.
At any rate, David and Rachel are still working hard to get the final details and finances wrapped up. If you would like to learn more about their journey or about how you can help them visit their blog.
Until the next post…
