Map of North and South America from Jersey City to Santiago ChileAs an international adoptee I would say that choosing international or domestic adoption is one made from the heart, there is no wrong choice, there is the right choice for your family. My parents decided international due to a-million-and-one reasons: love of another Chilean little girl they knew, their age, their circumstances, and their ultimate belief that it is what would be the right fit for their family. I honestly believe I was destined for my parents. I always joked that their birthdays equaled my birthday and that had to be a good sign. It must have been because my family is my family. Adoption is a choice of love. Adoption is a choice per family. Is your heart undecided?
