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?

We adopted our yougest daughter from China in 2010. She is now 3 1/2 years old. We waited over 4 years - lodged our paperwork in April 2006 and travelled to China in July 2010! It took us over 8 years from start to finish including the assessment and training prior to submitting our paperwork to China! Lovely story!
