    Childless and not adopting

    Are Amish families discriminated against when “English” social-service agencies make children available for adoption?

    Best summers ever

    After spending a few summers with an.amish family in Lebanon Pennsylvania i had a deep respect and love for the family. I would have no problem living as they do for the rest of my life.now this was back in the early 80s and still today those visits have a positive impact in my life. I recently reached out to that family that I spent the Summers with and was able to contact them and they are still just as nice and this kind as they were to me back then in fact they had said that the door was always open for me if and when I ever wanted to visit and I extended the invitation to them as well.

    Adopting Children

    We know a Christian family that has been trying to adopt through the official channels but they were told these children are beyond hope and have enough of a challenge without being raised in a Christian home!

    We also know Mennonite couples that have adopted children – my Son and Daughter’s father-in-law was adopted. Close friends of ours have adopted a son but were not able to keep him in the church. It appears to be a real struggle for the adopted ones. We have too many plain people that are too condescending or whatever; certainly not helpful. Another friend said you can’t successfully raise adopted children. if we have that attitude, it won’t be easy for those who do try.

    I doubt Mr. King seeks any kind of praise, but I’ll still congratulate him on being the kind of person who was singled out for this award. If I could, I would certainly visit his farm. How wonderful that he and his wife have found a way to “fill that void” of being childless by providing a family-oriented destination for visitors every autumn. We should all learn by their example to “bloom where we’re planted” and to accept our lot in life with grace.

    A Great Family

    Elias I feel it is very nice for what you and your wife are doing in the fall for families to visit and get to know the type of man and wife you have are. Is it possible to visit befor fall if we can. We visit Lancaster county alot and enjoy it very much there.

    Thank you again for helping us to understand and showing us how we can help fill a void for you and your wife.
