Florida Adoption Stories

Foreign adoption a way to 'spread love around'
The babies were sick. It took thousands of dollars and permission from two governments to adopt them.

The Morales, Franklin and Furiato families spent a year unraveling red tape and watching helplessly as their daughters spent holidays and birthdays a world away.

And they'd do it again.

"It's a blessing," said Esperanza Morales, who adopted her 2-year-old daughter, Eliana Bei Ling Morales, from the Yunnan province in China. "You love them even more because you've selected them."

Susan Furiato said she couldn't love her daughter, Mikala Yin Furiato, 2, more if she'd given birth to her.

"I look at her every day, and she takes my breath away," she said.
