Anne and her husband Dan were already parents, but that did not stop them from opening their homes and hearts to children in need of adoption. Ednel and Ronald, both from Haiti, joined the Knapp family and fit in perfectly. Ednel's journey from Haiti to America is especially fascinating, as it occurred shortly after a major earthquake rocked capital Port-au-Prince, though his adoption had been in motion for years. November is National Adoption Month, and there is no better time to hear about the Knapp family and celebrate with them the joys of adoption.

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL CAREGIVER AWARENESS MONTH
72% of U.S. Caregivers in Danger of Leaving Loved Ones without a Caregiver Entirely
NASHVILLE, TN — “I felt trapped. I felt despair that would hover over me for the next dozen years. This was a difficult place. I never imagined that the road would contain such suffering, loss, heartache, self-sacrifice, failure, and love,” says Peter Rosenberger.
In Hope for the Caregiver, Rosenberger describes the hell that his wife, Gracie went through – 78 operations, 60 physicians, a dozen hospitals and costs topping $9 million. He calls caregiving “One of the toughest jobs on earth.” There is a seldom-discussed seismic shift rumbling beneath the American economic and political mantle. By 2029, the youngest of the “baby boom” generation — those born between 1946 and 1964 — will reach retirement age. This group, over 76 million strong, added to those born prior to 1946, means over 90 million adults in America may soon need long-term caregivers. More than $1 trillion of wealth will be ultimately transferred from families because of the caring for these individuals.
“Make no mistake, if you love someone, you will be a caregiver. If you live long enough, you’ll need one,” says author and radio host, Peter Rosenberger, a 30-year caregiver himself. “But, here’s the real urgency: caregivers are usually family members—a massive unpaid workforce—who are in danger of burning out physically, emotionally, and fiscally before their loved ones. And with over 72% of the 65 million caregivers in the United States failing to see their own doctor, the most vulnerable among us are in jeopardy of being left without a caregiver entirely.
