LOVE IS BLIND

A married couple from Virginia, Joe and Karen Bartling, have only been able to have one child and have since struggled with conception. Even modern methods such as IVF did not work.

This made them decide to adopt children to expand their family. They wanted to make a noticeable difference and decided to adopt six children, all of whom are differently abled.

Their children are Hannah, Jesse, Abi, David, Obed, and Bethany. All six their adopted children are blind, and Jesse also has an intellectual disability.

However, Joe and Karen do not feel that their family is an exception and they view themselves as regular people. They admit that it can be challenging at times, but that the reward far exceeds it.

ANOTHER ADOPTION PROPOSAL

Alessandra is not the only child who has made an adoption proposal. Kalani Watson, a ten-year-old boy from Los Angeles, similarly surprised his stepfather.
