Army Adoption Story


Reserve major adopts baby from China
Like most reservists, when Maj. James Martin, was activated last May he left behind a family – with one caveat. He and his wife have been trying to adopt a fourth child since May 2005.

“Her name will be Claire Reagen Martin, she just turned two and she is from Guizhaou, China,” Martin said. “We started this process thinking we wanted as close to a newborn as possible, but it was taking an average of 14 months to complete an adoption.”

Martin is the operations officer for 2nd Squadron, 397th Cavalry Regiment, in Lexington, Ky., now serving as the regimental logistics officer for the 16th Cavalry Regiment at Fort Knox. Adoption is something Martin said he and his wife have thought about since his time on active duty in Korea.
