Many people ask us why we want to adopt from Africa. They want to know why we aren't adopting from here. When I watched these videos the words, "this is why" came to my mind. There are needs everywhere, but this is where God lead us.
I have always been a compassionate person, but I am learning that compassion without action is worthless. I don't want to just watch videos like this and be overwhelmed with sadness. I want to do something to make a difference. That is why I want to adopt. I want to change the life for one of these precious children.
