The decision to adopt a child is a big decision. As adoptive parents you bring a child into your home. This child may seem strange at first, but soon becomes an important member of the family. When the children they take home are ready to leave, whether they are returning to their family, to a new foster home, or being adopted by another family, it can be difficult for adoptive parents.

The Macintosh family has cared for more than 120 children. Jordan MacIntosh, one of those children, has been a foster child in their home since birth. The Macintosh family immediately fell in love with him and decided to adopt him.

“They put him in my arms and it was love at first sight,” said Jordan’s mother, Ingeborg Macintosh.

The adoption lasted four years. Ingeborg had to fight to be accepted as a family member. Jordan’s mother wanted him to “enter an African American or mixed race.” Jordan was officially adopted when he was four years old and only the Macintosh family was allowed to take him in.

ful to the Macintosh family for giving him a loving home. He knows how hard it was for his mother Ingeborg McIntosh to work to get him into her family and it was an easy decision for him to fight for.

Jordan’s mother was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease 27 years after his adoption into the Mackintosh family. Ingeborg predicted the need for a kidney transplant. Jordan screened him to see if he could donate one of his kidneys to his mother without her knowledge.

“I think that was my message in life, I guess,” Jordan added. I want to be able to do more for them as I get older, but right now that’s the least I can do.”

“Everything she’s done for me since I was a kid, I just wanted to give her back and show her how much I appreciate her,” he added.

Jordan’s happy message to all who hear his story is, “Something good is coming your way.”
