I have occasionally been asked why or even how we adopted a BOY from China. Most people (even some who have adopted from China) are surprised to learn that there are BOYS available in China and they are even more surprised to learn that their are LOTS of boys available. Boys actually wait longer than girls and there are more waiting boys than girls. We were given the chance to request a girl, a boy, or either, however, if we said either, we knew that we were most likely going to be matched with a boy. We chose to say either knowing that God would lead us to the child that He intended for us. And, I am so thankful that he led us to Paxton! I am so thankful to be able to be the mother of three little boys!
