I love to photograph children who've been adopted. I think there is something so wonderful and special about them. MY own husband was adopted at birth and he feels lucky to have been "chosen".
I know so many people who have said that "GOD PUT IT ON MY HEART TO ADOPT".
I wanted to tell you about a wonderful program that helps with the expenses of adoption. Adoption can be very expensive. Christian music singer Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife have 6 children and 3 of them are adopted.
Their first adopted childs name is Shaohannah Hope, for which the foundation is named after. See the link here.http://members.shaohannahshope.org/site/PageServer This organization gives grants to aid in the adoption process. It is not a 100% fee which completely covers all the expenses, but is meant to be a shot in the arm, and to "set a fire" in which your local church or community can raise funds and help to raise the remainder of the funds for the adoption.
Check out the site its fantastic!
Also to hear about the interview go to this link on Crown.Orgs web site. to hear the story of how the Chapmans daughter was persistent in trying to get her parents to adopt in the first place!
Its an amazing story!http://www.crown.org/radio/shaohannahshope.asp?&aid=SCHOM
