This Real Mom of CafeMom Adopted Her Daughter from China!

Posted by   + Show Post

Claire and her husband knew from their first date that they would someday want to adopt a child from China, but their journey to parenthood was hardly that straightforward.

There were years of infertility, a devastating loss, and then stacks and stacks of paperwork and bureaucracy to wade through before they finally welcomed their daughter home.

And that wasn't the end of the story - there was another surprise in store for the family! Watch to find out what happened!

Has your life been touched by adoption in some way?

Beautiful family! My 2 cousins are adopted from china, they both had health problems when they were brought to the states, the but the youngest had the most problems. She had a cleft palate, and didnt know how to cry at 18 months, so they had to follow a schedule for feeding and changings because she wouldn't cry if she was hungry!

This is awesome! I finally get to put a face and a voice to the name Claire. Claire is like my little guardian angel. I say some pretty controversial things about adoption and whenever someone says something mean to me, up pops Claire to my defence. It makes me laugh a happy laugh.

Claire, I have to say you look and sound nothing like I imagined :) Great video!

Claire you and your family are so cute.  I always tell you this, and I'll say it again, you always have this warm and welcoming feeling whenever you post.  Your girls are so lucky to have you.  I just want to come to your house and hang out with you three.

    Oh my goodness, both her girls are adorable!   One of my good friends adopted a daughter from China and one from Columbia and they are adorable and actually look like they could be their biological children in a way.
