Why fly across the world to adopt? Well, we really hoped to have a
Eurasian baby so that he/she would reflect both of us to some degree.
But where do we find such a child? We heard from a friend in the field
that Kazakhstan is loaded with such people, and we should look into it.
Well, we researched it, and found Kazakhstan to have excellent
orphanages, and drug/alcohol problems are quite rare due to religious
beliefs. The kicker was that every picture of the kids we saw was just
gorgeous! And yes, most were Eurasian. When we learned more about the
history of Kazakhstan, it became apparent why this is the case. We read
that after you get serious about an international adoption, once you
start researching, you get drawn to a country, and it 'just feels
right'. I never believed it when I read it, but it turned out to be
true! We were both just drawn to Kazakhstan, and we knew it was right!
Below is a diary which we will do much more with when the time comes:
