The Lord's at work through adoptive families

China (PRC)Down syndrome children in China, once considered unadoptable by the government, are now getting the opportunity to join new loving families, thanks to the obedience of one woman.

Six years ago while worshiping at church in Washington state, the Lord gave Desiree White a picture of a child with Down syndrome. She knew then that as a single person, she would be adopting a child with the disorder, and the door eventually opened for her to adopt in China. Her son, Isaac, was the first to be released for adoption, then White was contacted by Chinese authorities a year later.

"They didn't understand why anybody would want a child with Down syndrome, but for whatever reason, my child was thriving," she tells OneNewsNow. "They didn't understand it, but they were willing to release other children with Down syndrome into adoption if we could help find them homes."

And she has since been a passionate advocate for the Bamboo Project through Bethany Christian Services.

"We have about 15 of these original Bamboo kids home with their families, and they're all thriving with these amazing families that have just blossomed their hearts toward Down syndrome adoption," White shares. "And they are now getting to watch the Lord work through their families."

The Bamboo Project is currently working to get another 30 Chinese children with Down syndrome adopted.
