People adopt children for many reasons. They might not be able to have a baby or feel that they need to give back to the community and help less fortunate kids living in foster care. Regardless, it’s a beautiful occasion that brings forth the love and support they have to give.
One man adopted a girl no one wanted. However, he cared for and loved her without any issues up until adulthood. Then, things suddenly changed, causing him to become confused and sad. What happened to make that girl unadoptable? Had she done something wrong, or did it have to do with lineage?
Dale Jefferson was about 44 years old when he chose to have a child. He lived in St. Cloud, Minnesota, and didn’t really date. Since he was single, he jumped at the opportunity to adopt a 6-year-old girl named Lise Barber. No one wanted her, and it could be his only chance!
Dale wasn’t sure why he was set on adopting and didn’t care. He knew he wanted children, and this might be the only chance to make it work. Later, he realized that he should have been much more careful. Just 28 years afterward, he found out the truth.
