8:40 am
it in a negative sense, that it was just something i wasn't going to do because i didn't think i was suited for it, and so for me to be able to look over the fence at a place like haiti and consider this idea of becoming a father at 51 was a radical departure from what i thought was my normal or what i wanted. i remember walk into my very first orphanage. when i was in the midst of that orphanage and then even walking away from that orphanage there was this -- this -- this voice, this thing saying do something. now, at the time i wasn't exactly sure what the something was, but the obvious do something was to adopt one or two or in our case three of these children. >> i believe that we are exactly where we belong. this -- everything in my past, in craig's past, even in our children's past, was shaped for
