As you probably know, the adoption process can be quite complex and also frustrating at times. We have been pursuing an adoption for many years. After a lot of different pathways, we have finally found the one that we think will finally work for us. We are so excited to announce that we are in the process of adopting a wonderful boy from China with special needs, named Chun Bai, whom we plan to call John. John is 10 years old and has albinism and associated vision problems. If all goes well, we are very excited about traveling to China to get him, hopefully in late summer of this year. One of the challenges of adopting overseas is the financial burden. We have started a fundraising effort in the hopes that we might be able to make the last money to bring John home from the orphanage where he has lived for the past 10 years.
We have an arrangement with a the company called Just Love Coffee which will give us a percentage of their sales through "our" page on their site to help fund our adoption. We have tried and enjoyed their coffee. They also sell hot chocolate and gift items. We invite you to take a look and see if you would like to buy anything while also helping us with our adoption. If any of you coffee lovers wish to buy their coffee and benefit us, please call them and say that you want to benefit adoptingjohn because their system is not crediting us when it is purchased online.
