Terence Mentor is a dad of two, living in South Africa, with his wife. That wife was once his girlfriend, who explained to him that she wanted to be a temporary safety-care mom (much like foster parent in the U.S.). Since then, they have together taken care of 14 babies. Including one who is now their beloved son.
Here, Mentor talks to his son about adoption on #WorldAdoptionDay. Tissues please.
