Aaron's Adoption Story Part III: Location, Location, Location
We knew from the start that we would like to adopt from Africa. The need was so great and we felt a strong connection to the continent. We had awesome experiences hosting members of different African choirs when they were touring the US, and Jesse had traveled to South Africa a few years back. Not to mention Isaac, Janaya, and Lacy's African American heritage. We never really considered anywhere else. Initially, the plan was to adopt from Liberia. However, we were advised to switch to Ethiopia because of instability in the Liberian program at the time. It was hard to shift our focus to Ethiopia after having Liberia in our hearts for so long, but it turns out God was just leading us to the kids that were meant to be ours!
