WCCO's Turner travels to Liberia
to fulfill a promiseArticle Last Updated: 06/28/2007 06:36:49 PM CDT
This week, Sue Turner will make good on a promise she made to herself more than a decade ago. Turner, a 34-year-old WCCO-TV reporter, has wanted to adopt a child from Africa since she studied abroad in the country during her college days.
On Thursday, Turner and her husband, Scott Richardson, left for a 10-day trip to Liberia where they would be introduced to their adopted children, Emanuel, 4, and Abigail, 7.
Before she headed out of town, we talked to Turner about going to Liberia, the adoption process and adding onto the family, which also includes the couple's 2-year-old biological daughter, Annie.
Q. Why did you decide to adopt from Liberia?
A. "We wanted to do Africa, and Liberia was English-speaking and it was a little bit cheaper than some of the other countries. But I had always wanted to adopt from Africa."PLEASE GO HERE TO READ THE REST OF THIS INTERVIEW
