Illinois Adoption Story

Families celebrate adoption, diversity
ROCKFORD — They say the hardest part is the wait.

Or the paperwork. Or the cost. Or the stigma.

Or more paperwork. And more waiting.

But the downsides to adopting abroad instantly vanished for Evelyn and Dennis Meyers the minute they spotted Molly. Next it was Annie. And then Zoey.

And in about two weeks, the family will return to China to gather the couple’s fourth child, 2-year-old Mary Su Yuan, after nearly a year of anticipation.

“It’s a really long and tiring process, but once you see that child, it’s like giving birth,” Evelyn said. “You have the child, and you forget it.”
