Last week’s post by Veronica Chenik Gilmore, about her adopted children, held special significance for me.
My daughters (see below), now 11 and 9, are adopted too.
My wife and I worked through an international adoption agency, Gladney, that is at least nominally Christian, having been founded by a Methodist minister more than a hundred years ago. I wasn’t aware of this at the start, but wouldn’t have cared one way or the other. All that mattered to me was that the agency was staffed with experienced, caring, competent, and fair people. And it was. I have nothing but abundant praise for our case workers and everyone else up and down Gladney’s chain of command.
Throughout the years-long process, there was just one hiccup that had to do with religion.
