South Africa - Links

As we move through this process, we have had the great opportunity to come in contact with many different people, some of which we have not even met yet, except for on-line.  It is amazning though how much support they have been.  Charles and I have become members of an on-line Support Group called "Families with Children from South Africa,  All of the individuals in this group have either adopted children from South Africa, or are in the process of doing so.  We cannot emphasize how useful this has been for us, or how important it is going to be for the child we adopt to have these connections as they grow up.  We are hoping to have the chance to meet some of these families at a Family Gathering in January - so we can put some faces to names!  This is the link if you would like to check out some of the information they have posted.  There are many additional links to Adoption & South African Resources.
