One Sunday night in 1995 we were watching 60 Minutes. They had a piece on Chinese adoption. We sat together and as we watched the piece, it touched us. Seemingly Norman and I at the same time, nodded our heads, as if to say ‘yes’. As we watched the segment on 60 Minutes, I fell in love and felt as if my heart getting pulled in. At that same time Norman said, “Oh I’d adopt from China.” It was music to my ears. It sounded perfect.
The piece ended and Norman lowered the volume on the television. We began discussing adopting from China. Norman said, “You know, if we can’t have our own. I would be glad to adopt a couple of those babies from China. They need homes.”
I responded, filled with joy, “Really?! I was thinking the same thing. I’m game. There is a need. I’d adopt any child..." Norman was getting on board.
