Adopting was something that my husband and I talked about long before we were even married. It was something that we both were interested in doing if the opportunity presented itself.
In early 2010 we re-visited this subject as we looked for ways to grow our family. After a lot of research, we decided to adopt a child from South Korea.
We traveled to South Korea in May 2011 to meet our son, Matthew. We were so anxious to meet him and introduce him to family and friends.
We wondered how our daughter Sarah would react to suddenly being the big sister to an 11-month old little brother. She had been an only child for almost five years. Plus, being Korean, he would look very different from our blond haired daughter.
