Family has opened home and hearts to several through adoption

Families can be defined in many ways, but the most common element is love for one another. Some parents do not limit their families only through the birth of their biological children and will open their homes and hearts through adoption. Thousands of families in California have been created through this labor of love.

One family recently shared their journey of growing from a family of five to a family of eight through the adoption of three children over the space of several years. The mother initially expressed resistance to the idea of becoming a parent to children who were not her biological offspring. However, over time, her spouse was able to convince her to research the possibility of opening their family up to other children.

The first child to join their three biological children was a 2-year-old girl from China. She was later joined by a 6-year-old adopted brother and then another 3-year-old boy. All of the children were adopted from China through a process which is described as costly but does not require a lengthy waiting time. Overall, adoption numbers are down -- partially due to the restrictions some countries have placed on allowing foreign adoptions for American families.

While these parents acknowledged that the process of uniting their children into a whole family was not without its difficulties, the effort was worth the cost and time. There are children all over the world who are hoping for the opportunity to belong to a family of their own. California families who are contemplating the option of bringing a child into their hearts and homes through adoption may benefit from the services of an experienced family law attorney who can guide them through the process.
