Christin Slade A Journey Through Adoption

What?! You want to adopt–from Africa?! Why?!

I can’t pinpoint an exact date of when we decided we wanted to adopt from Africa. The entire process of even thinking outside ourselves in this way was a gradual one.

I remember in years passed, sitting in on those “mission Sunday” services and always dreading them (or skipping them if I could get away with it). I never felt like I could relate because I simply wasn’t interested in overseas missions. At all. It was too far away and the cultures were too different for me to even want to thinkabout getting involved. I wouldn’t allow myself to attach to the idea and of course the money followed suit.  To continue reading about one family's journey into adoption, click here.
