How did you hear about the adoption benefit?
The HR representative for our group suggested to check out the adoption benefits Caterpillar gives once I told her about our plans to adopt from India.
How has adoption impacted your family?
It has been a great change. We already have a natural born child and the addition of a daughter made the family complete.
Why did you choose to adopt?
We chose to adopt for multiple reasons. We wanted a girl as second child and during the pregnancy of our first child, my wife had to go through significant challenges in the last three months of her pregnancy. This could have ended by endangering the lives of both my wife and our child. We did not want to take that risk again so we decided to adopt.
