Wisconsin Adoption Story

Baby Emma meets parents in China
They prayed. They waited. They talked to God a little more and their prayers were answered in the form of a 9-month-old baby. When just 10 years old, Lori (Reed) Kay, originally of West Salem, remembers standing by her locker and telling a friend she wanted to adopt a baby from China someday. She told her husband, Rob, of her desire to adopt before they were even married. He wasn’t opposed to the idea.

Five years ago, the couple learned they could not have biological children and began looking into adoption more seriously. In 2004, they started filling out paperwork and researching agencies. Because China will not allow a couple to adopt before they are 30 years old, Rob and Lori were forced to wait for her 30th birthday in January 2005.
