I want to thank the Sun-Gazette for publishing our story. I want to answer some of the comments that were posted online the day it appeared. Why not adopt a U.S. kid, and why pay 50 grand for a child? You should ask that same question to the thousands of parents trying to adopt internationally, right now, not only from Russia, and those who did in the past from all over the world. We all face the choice, and have taken the international route. It makes sense to us.
