The Chinese policy says that you can have four children and adopt one more from China making the total number of kids in your home five. This was the situation when we began our adoption, but of course the pregnancy would bump us up to five children. Although I was nervous to inform our agency about our new situation, because I afraid they would cancel the adoption, it was the only ethical thing to do. After much deliberation our agency decided that at the time we sent our dossier to China this was a snapshot of our family, and so they would let our adoption progress. (This policy has now been changed .) It was clear that God wanted us to train two more children for Him.
