Children Need Families, and We Need a Child

20Nov14

“The thing is, IVF is as expensive, but in our eyes it’s much more risky. We were told that the chance of us getting pregnant was 5 per cent, whereas for adoption the success rate is 95 per cent. It’s a no-brainer, isn’t it? And there are children who need families, and we need a child.

This story of Pippa & Emmanuel Wauthier is another fantastic example of commonsense and determination to achieve what is possible in the face of disability.  They both have different forms of dwarfism and live life to the full and now,  not able to have children naturally are following through their instincts and looking to adopt a child who shares their disability from China.  Their attitude is refreshing and so prolife, although they don’t openly say it.  If only society could share this attitude and look to adoption as a way to share the love and positive experience of family life with children who have not been so fortunate.
