NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WOOD) — A heartbroken Norton Shores couple out thousands of dollars and no child to show for it has a warning for other families looking to adopt.
When Susan and Grant Lee first saw Eden, they knew she was meant to be their daughter. A friend had adopted a child from Ghana and showed them pictures of children in the Ashan orphanage in Kumasi. That’s when they first saw Eden.

I'm sure there will be many who will totally disagree with me on this, but I have very little sympathy for this couple. They bypassed the adoption agency who could have saved them much pain and disappointment, not to speak of financial loss, long before it got this far.
However, it seems they thought they knew best, so they have to live with the consequences. So, why are they complaining? I hope it's only to warn others not to be so foolish.

I just pick and choose the sections I read, sometimes rearranging.
A friend had adopted a child from Ghana and showed them pictures of children in the Ashan orphanage in Kumasi. That’s when they first saw Eden.
The Lees were working with Nightlight Christian Adoptions. The South Carolina adoption agency’s work with Ghana is a pilot program.
The couple made the trip overseas, meeting Eden at the orphanage.
The man who ran the orphanage, known as NaNa, kept in contact with the Lees on the phone and through Facebook messages
The president of Nightlight Christian Adoptions told Target 8 said the Lees began talking directly with the orphanage director in Ghana because they felt they had a special bond with him, but that isn’t how they typically do business.
