Devout Christian couple Aaron and Rachel Halbert decided to adopt children for their family after having trouble conceiving their own. Realizing that adopting children is “logical outcome of being pro-life,” the two decided to not adopt caucasian children, as they are always chosen first at adoption agencies.
Aaron was raised in a Honduras missionary, and says he was a “blue-eyed, cotton-topped white kid who stuck out like a sore thumb.” The couple first adopted two african american children, and were immediately completely in love with them. ‘The beauty of a multi-ethnic family is found there, in the fact that the differences are the very thing that make ours richer and fuller. It forces you to think in a new way about the way you think, speak, act and live,” Aaron said.
