When my dad was active duty Air Force -and deploying to Vietnam with reconnaissance and combat missions - he and my mom adopted my brother from a Korean agency.

My son in law is active duty Air Force and he and my daughter successfully adopted my grandson from a Korean agency as well.

No unusual issues due to military service for either family.

What you have/haven't seen, or what I have/haven't seen is irrelevant. The adoption process is subjective based on home studies, opinions, and judges making rulings from the bench. The fact is different agencies and courts make judgment calls based on the information they have, and feel is relevant to the case.

There is absolutely nothing in this case in Louisiana to indicate that they were denied due to military service.

Thank you for your concern regarding adoption and children. While we may disagree about your over-reaching opinions and statements, I applaud you for your heart.
