You’ve certainly heard about Steve Jobs’ (of Apple fame) passing from pancreatic cancer. But did you know he was adopted as an infant? Read the article Steve Jobs Changed the World: Adoption Changed His, written by another adult adoptee, Ryan Bomberger. I also encourage you to watch Ryan’s video about his own experience being an adoptee… incredibly moving.
And did you know that wheelchair bound children are getting a chance to surf? Like, in the ocean? Read about 3 year old Surf Princess Maile, who is riding the waves (and setting Guinness World Records!) thanks to Life Rolls On.
Our own KJ, who blogs at Raising Devils, shares her most recent accomplishment: creating a birthday cake for her daughter Rory – who hates birthday cakes. Read A Cake for the Cake-Hater and I guarantee you’ll either relate to the cake-hating or hating the cake hater’s cake hating.
My friend Branda, who brought home her daughter Man Yu from China in July, shares openly and honestly about what life is like when adopting an older child. Branda shares that even when you’ve done all the reading and researching, and think you’re ready for anything… you might be surprised.
And lastly, if you’re like all of us around here, you’ll want to take a few moments (or hours!) and travel vicariously with these folks currently in China to bring home their kiddos:
- The Most Important Things – bringing home their son Lin Feng
- We Are Adopting From China - bringing home their daughter Myah, who has cleft lip and palate
- Follow Meili Home – bringing home their daughter Meili, who has microtia
