Ohio Adoption Story

Local family adopting from China
Greg and Cricket Matherly decided part way through the adoption process to consider adopting a special needs child. Then they started getting pictures from the agency and saw a smiling face, 6-year-old Jhin Jhin, abandoned at 4 months old at a police station.

Greg Matherly says, "If the child is over 6 years of age they're labeled as special needs because at that point it's considered to be a language barrier between English and as it is Mandarin."

So, the Matherly's will welcome, not a baby, but a six-year-old girl into their family.
