NPR recently ran a series on adoption in America:
The above photo is of Susan Cox who was adopted from Korea in the 1950s and is one of the interviewees in the series. All the interviews are really good - listen if you get a chance.
I also found this interview which is a bit older (2004), but Marie Spark and Mohan Vemulapalli succinctly summarize our reasons for choosing international adoption (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4237836 ).
And, a bit of an update - we have our first home study visit with our social worker on Wednesday!
