Adoption

Alex and I met in 1991 and got married in 1995. We always talked about having kids and adopting. After many years without any results, we decided to reach medical assistance to help us realize our dream of starting a family.

7 years of treatments, IVF, foiled hopes and moral and physical fatigue, decided us to turn the page and reconsider adoption. Despite the fact that we had to wait until I was 30 to start and we had to obtain a guaranty from France since at that time none of us were Canadian Citizen, our first adoption went pretty smoothly.

On November, 8th 2004 we received Ms M X in our arms in Changsha. She was 10 months and a half. Since then she is our little sunshine.

On May 10th 2010 we met in Urumqi with our son, little Mr E. With 2 ray of sunshine, our lives are just more warm and beautiful!
