At about the time the VanCamp's started talking about adopting they had a friend who was adopted from Korea when she was 2 years old. They were so excited to have someone to ask questions of that experienced life being asian in a caucasion family. Unfortunately, she was then killed by a drunk driver, but the VanCamp's passion for adopting lived on!
The VanCamps found that they did not qualify for a Korea adoption, but qualified for China. This September the family welcomed their fifth adopted daughter home!
They have perservered through five adoptions with their latest adoption bringing their fifth daughter home in September. Their advice is not to sit around thinking about it, but to pray about it. If He points you in that direction, listen and get started!
Congratulate the VanCamp Family!
