Goal #105 Adopt a Child
Yesterday, I visited with the social worker at the Cobán Regional Hospital. My inquiry was related to the possibility of adoption of an abandoned baby. She said that as long as we are residents of Guatemala, get approved as foster parents and are willing to pay the legal fees, it shouldn't be difficult at all.
Everytime I visit the hospital with a team, there is a baby or two (or three or four or five) that has been abandoned by his mother. Everytime, I experience a sharp pang of fatherhood.
So, in a year or so, we will likely pursue this opportunity to make our family greater...
...and I'll be able to cross #105 off.
