South Carolina Adoption Story

The article below covers a range of IA issues, not just those pertaining to China:

Finding Family: The call to adopt breaks barriers
A 6-year-old girl - all sugar, spice and spunk - jumps up onto a bench and pushes wisps of black hair from her sweaty, smooth, cinnamon-colored face.

Her name is Tally Perry, and she is a daughter of Melinda Perry, whose flock consists of six other children.

For now, anyway.

Come October, Perry, 49, will become a mother again when she goes to Foshan City, China, to get Tabitha, a 19-month-old toddler who has big, luminous eyes and sports a mohawk. And Tally, who was adopted from Wuhan, China, in January 2002 will be there when her parents get the newest addition to their family.
