10 Reasons to Adopt from Ethiopia

I saw this today in an Illinois newsletter about adoption. I made it personal to my Ethiopian adoption experience.

  1. Others tell you that you are good with kids.

  2. Your commitment will help change a child's future.

  3. Patience and a sense of humor are two of your greatest strengths.

  4. You have love and time to give.

  5. Reaching out to others seems natural to you.

  6. You have a spare bedroom, and you rather it go to a child than become yet another storage closet.

  7. You know how important it is to be a part of a family.

  8. You are ready to accept the challenge of parenting a special child.

  9. You believe that every kid deserves a family.

  10. Today there are approximately 6 million orphan children in Ethiopia who need the constant love of a family.
