Ryan Holets, who is a police officer in Washington D.C, made headlines back in 2017. He adopted a baby that was born to a drug-addicted homeless woman. He was invited to attend President Trump’s State of the Union Address, which will take place on January 30. Ryan is having a hard time processing this. He stated that he feels like he is in the twilight zone.
Ryan stated that he feels like it is his duty to help end drug addiction and poverty in this country. On September 23, 2017, Ryan was training a rookie officer. They had responded to a call about a convenience store robbery. Although it was a false alarm, they saw something that was serious.
Ryan noticed a woman shooting up heroin. She was eight months pregnant. He told the woman to stop because she was going to kill her baby. The woman, who is known as Champ, cried. She stated that her heroin usage was the only thing that she had control over.
Ryan stated that a voice told him to adopt the child. That is what he decided to do. Ryan and his wife Rebecca had wanted to adopt a child for a long time. Their daughter’s name is Hope. Not only did Ryan adopt the baby girl, but he also made sure that the parents were able to get into rehab. The parents checked into Mending Forces, which is a rehab center in Florida.
Ryan stated that he will be there for Hope’s birth parents if they need him. The White House stated that they hope that this adoption story will raise awareness about the opioid crisis in America.
A 18-year-old woman from China did not know that she was adopted until she was diagnosed with cancer. The woman, whose name is Peng Xin, is now trying to find her biological parents. She needs to have a bone marrow transplant and hopes that her parents will be a match. Peng underwent a variety of tests in order to diagnose her illness. That was when she found out that her parents were not her biological parents.
Peng will receive chemotherapy, which can extend her life by up to 10 months. However, she will eventually need to get a bone-marrow transplant. Peng’s adoptive mom stated that they have raised their daughter since she was an infant. They decided to keep the adoption a secret.
The woman stated that they were not wealthy and already had two children. However, they decided to take the infant in anyway because she would not have made it. Peng’s mom stated that they never intended to tell her about the adoption. They were forced to tell Peng the truth once they found out that she needed to have a bone marrow transplant.
Peng’s classmates have put together a video sharing her story. The video has pictures of Peng growing up. They hope that the video will reach their parents. One of the classmates stated that Peng may not have know about her biological parents if it had not been for her illness.
A classmate also stated that Peng is not only dealing with the pain of her illness, but she is also dealing with an emotional setback. They also stated that they do not know how Peng will deal with this, and they want to help her.
Blake Wilson received a Father’s Day gift he is sure to never forget. His stepson, Tyler Dukes, has been in his life for seven years and wanted to show him just how much he and his ore sense meant, so for a Father’s Day gift, Tyler framed a picture of the two and added a beautifully written tribute. The tribute goes on to say that Blake has been an amazing father figure and IS as real of a dad as any. This written proof of love made an amazing gift on its own, bringing Blake to tears, but Tyler did not stop there with showing the love. Taped to the back of the frame was an envelope. When Blake opened the envelope, he found papers that proved just how incredible their relationship is. Tyler had adoption papers drawn up, making Blake his adoptive father.
It was something he had wanted for quite some time, Tyler’s mom said, as his biological father was no longer in the picture. Tyler’s old enough at the age of 20 to be considered an adult, but still, he wanted to make the adoption official, so he could take Blake’s last name officially. Tyler’s mom admits that Tyler’s biological father had chosen to leave their lives many years before and broke all contact with Tyler. He was 13 when Blake came into his life and took on the role of dad full force. It was a choice that was not always simple and easy, but proved to be worth it day in and out as the two formed a bond that went beyond blood.
February 9th opens the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. While the festivities will bring athletes and spectators from across the globe, one special group will be coming home. For a group that left as orphans decades ago, this will be their first time stepping upon the shores of their homeland, and that makes these Olympic ceremonies even sweeter.
It is no secret that South Korea has had a large number of foreign adoptions since the 1950s. Beginning with the biracial lovechildren of the Korean War, others were quickly added that did not meet the expectations of the starkly conversative nation. This includes female infants, as well as children of families with more than two children and unwed mothers. The peak in South Korea’s foreign adoptions occurred around the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul. The number of foreign adoptions steadily decreased after the country’s 2007 to 2013 adoption legislation which limited the number of foreign adoptions, set a five month waiting period, and encouraged home country priority adoptions.
Although adoptive parents love adopted children as their own, some adoptees still feel a desire to know about their birth families and where they came from. This need for ancestral roots is what inspired Keziah Park of the International Korean Adoptee Service to arrange the Olympic Homecoming. The week-long trip includes athletic events and seats at the Opening Ceremonies.
The trip will also include a visit with one special Olympic athlete, Marissa Brandt. Marissa understands what it is like to be an adoptee. She was adopted at four years old and moved to the US. After college, she became a dual citizen and is now playing on South Korea’s women’s ice hockey team.
Ms. Park hopes trip guests will connect with other adoptees and find the ties they’ve been looking for.

A listener asked Delilah about books that they should read in order to cope with the loss of a child. She stated that there was not any book that could help.
Delilah also stated that the suggestions that people make have not helped her. She stated that being there for someone is the only thing that can help. Delilah is getting ready to adopt her 14th child. She had three biological children and 10 adopted.
There are 487,000 children who are in foster care. Only 5 percent of these children will have a forever home. She stated that adoption has been a blessing because many of the children would not have a home. She also stated that raising her children has been her world.

Amy Duggar-King, who is the cousin of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, recently stated that she would be interested in adopting the Turpin children. David and Louise Turpin subjected their children to horrific abuse. Many people stated that Amy’s statement was just a publicity stunt. However, she stated that she was serious. Amy also said that she would take in all 13 children, whose ages ranged from 2 to 29, if she had enough money and space.
Amy said that she was hurt when she saw the case on television. She also stated that anyone who abuses animals and children should be hung by their toenails. Amy said that she would take the children in and show them the love that they had never experienced. She can relate to the children’s story. She has also suffered horrific abuse at the hands of the father. She revealed this when she appeared on “Marriage Bootcamp.”
David and Louise Turpin’s children were severely malnourished. They were also subjected to physical and mental abuse. The abuse went unnoticed for years until the 17-year-old daughter decided to call the police. The neighbors caught glimpses of what was going on. However, the couple was private, so many people had no idea of what they were doing.
The community saw one of the children at the neighborhood Christmas party. The man was in his 20s, but he looked like he was still a teenager. The children’s classmates also took note of their strange behavior. One of the girl’s classmates stated that she was frail and wore the same clothes every day. The girl was also bullied by her classmates because they stated that her clothes had a funny smell.
Over $400,000 have been raised for the children.
Adoption is a great process that allows a person to become a parent. There are millions of children throughout the world who are waiting to be adopted. In President Trump’s recent speech, he mentioned a police officer who adopted a baby who was impacted by drugs.
There are some people who decide to take drugs while being pregnant. This causes a multitude of issues in the developing fetus. Once the baby is born, there are various issues that parents have to deal with. In this particular story, the mother did not want to take care of the baby. A local police officer decided to adopt the baby. This story made national news because it touched the hearts of so many people.
The Cost of Adoption
One of the reasons that more people do not adopt children is the financial cost. There are tax credits that parents can take advantage of, but these tax credits do not cover the entire cost of the adoption process. There are many government leaders who want to improve the adoption process. It takes several years for the adoption process to finish.
Why Adoption Matters
With millions of children around the world without a home, adoption is a great way for a person to make a positive impact in the world. Adoption is the perfect way to offer a child a loving and supportive home. There are millions of people who owe their success in life to their adoptive parents.
Going through the adoption process is hard. In some cases, the entire process can take years. In the coming years, many people hope that the adoption process is streamlined.
Cassuandra Eisner is a student at Kennebecasis Valley High School. She was adopted when she was 11-years-old. She knew that she defied the odds because older children have a harder time being adopted. She recently spoke at the New Brunswick Adoption Foundation. This was the first time that Cassuandra had spoken in public about adoption.
Children who are adopted typically are not in the spotlight. However, Cassaundra decided to speak at the event because she wanted to persuade more people to adopt older children. There are currently 258 children in New Brunswick who are in need of a permanent home.
There are 400 children who are in foster care. Sixty percent of these children will not be able to return to their families. Cassaundra stated that she went to school with a lot of the children who were represented in those numbers. She also stated that those children want to be a part of a family and deserve one.
There was a study taken by the AB Foundation that showed that people have less interest in adopting older children. One hundred and twenty-one people participated in the study. Seventy-one percent of people wanted to adopt babies. Less than 15 percent of people were interested in adopting a child who was over the age of 12.
Cassaundra’s biological family was not fit to raise her. There was poverty and alcoholism in her family. Most of the people in her family had not completed high school. Cassaundra was placed in foster care in February 2010. She was adopted by John and Susan Eisner, who already had three kids of their own.
Colin Kennedy Robichaud is a 13-year-old boy who was also adopted. He was another person who spoke at the luncheon. He had moved 12 times while in foster care before he was adopted.
Simone Biles was the star of the 2016 Rio Olympics. She won the gold medal in gymnastics with her teammates. She went on to easily win the individual all-around and the vault and floor titles. She also won the bronze medal on the balance team. Gymnastics experts and casual fans alike say that Biles is the greatest gymnast of all time.
Biles credits her success to her adoptive parents, Ron and Nellie Biles. The couple adopted Simone and her sister after the children spent years in the foster care system. Biles said that she was always happy to see Ron, her biological grandfather, arrive to visit her or pick her up while she was in foster care. She said she missed not having a mom to approach with problems when she was little.
Biles’ biological mother eventually lost parental rights after a struggle with substance abuse. Biles reports that her mother was frequently in jail and unable to care for her. Biles says that she doesn’t have a way to thank her adoptive parents enough for what they’ve done for her.
A movie about their adoptive journey premiers on February 3, 2018, on Lifetime. The movie explores her parent’s doubts about the amount of time that Simone invested in gymnastics as she climbed the ranks of elite athletes. Biles says that when she had trouble during a competition, her mother told her to be the best Simone that she could be. She said that her parents never pressured her to become a world or Olympic champion.
The material for the Lifetime special comes from Biles’ biography, Courage to Soar. Biles is already in training for her bid to make the team for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. She now trains with Laurent Landi after the retirement of her previous coach, Aimee Boorman.
