Florida Adoption Story

Couple gives lesson in love with adoption of special-needs twins
Two sisters — identical twins — were just 3 days old when their mother left them in a cardboard box outside an orphanage in central China with a hand-scrawled plea to help her babies.

Born premature on Sept. 12, 2003, the siblings weighed less than 5 pounds. Their twin status violated China's one-child-per-family law. Worst of all, their cherubic faces were warped with cleft lips and palates.

But to Don and Grace White of Stuart, the twins were a godsend.

Just as a note -- China's one-child policy allows for twins. Families with twins aren't subject to the normal fines that multiple children households are.

btw, thank you on a very interesting read/blog :)

I believe you are correct and therefore the article writer would be wrong on that point.

Thank you for reading.
