We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

Question 7: Why two?

Why are you adopting two unrelated children at the same time?  Won't that make the transition harder?

Because they are our girls.  We have never adopted a child that we did not feel a VERY STRONG knowledge that they were meant to come to our family.  Although we have adopted siblings before, we have never adopted 2 unrelated children at the same time.  But I guess they are related, they are siblings, because they are meant to be sisters. It is just legal paperwork that says they are not right now.  But God knows.  And I am certainly not going to leave one behind for later!

What I am amazed to discover is that we are not alone.  Many, many families have been called to adopt more then one unrelated children with significant special needs at the same time.  Here are some blogs of other families adopting more then one at a time through Reeces Rainbow.  The need is just so high that God is sending them two by two, or by threes or even fours!
