Oregon Adoption Story

Bringing Emma home
David and Dena Dwyer knew they would adopt a child from China when they both had dreams about being parents of an Asian child

TUALATIN — For two and a half years, David and Dena Dwyer, of Tualatin, had worked, dreamed and prayed with one goal in mind — to adopt a baby from China.

So when the day came on May 14 for them to meet 20-month-old Emma, who was born in Chongquing, China, they were excited.

But that emotional meeting didn’t turn out exactly as they had pictured it — when Emma saw Dena, she started crying and didn’t want to be near her.
