Two news articles in Taiwan this week feature a Virginia couple who have just adopted an adorable 4-year-old boy from Chung Yi, an orphanage in Taipei. I noticed in one of the photos that the little boy is already sporting a Virginia Tech t-shirt. It’s always fun to read about families coming together through adoption – congratulations and Happy Mother’s Day! The links below will take you to the two articles:

    You really do find the most interesting articles. Kinda sad really… why the Taiwan media found this child’s adoption story so interesting. Sad to think others think the idea of adopting child with ADD is so bizarre that multiple news stories would be written about it. If this was about a domestic adoption in the US, it would never hit the papers.

    I agree… you are kind of a the news article queen. Look at that Dad… I love that picture. Such a happy little family.

    Oh goodness… ADHD… I think I’m going to give people a run for their money with my hyper-activity… please hope that I can tone it down while there in Taiwan! ha ha

    I am so glad this family found their son and that this boy has found his family. May their lives be blessed and full of the joy of family. I love that they view their son as full of talent and seeing that his special need can also be a talent. =0)

    Ok now I’m rambling but I am waiting along with you excited to see your special moment! eek…
