This is a beautiful love story – first, it was love between a man and his wife. Then the couple’s family grew – and grew! Aaron and Rachel Halbert got married knowing they wanted children, but they had trouble conceiving naturally. The couple then decided to adopt two African-American children from an adoption agency in Mississippi. As a white couple, their decision to adopt black children was met with scorn and racism.
The couple was undaunted. They hear about a program at the National Embryo Donation Center, and Rachel had two African-American twin embryos implanted. The embryos at the center are excess frozen embryos that couples who are having trouble conceiving can ‘adopt.’ Watch the video to see what happened – remember, this is a love story!
Take a look!
Being loved and cared for by parents is the most important thing for children. Skin color is – well, just skin color.
Share away, people!
