Our Adoption Journey

After months of trying to increase our family on our own, we have gone back to our initial plan of adding through adoption. We thought we would adopt after having two biological children, but we believe God’s plan is different. We are in the midst of getting our dossier ready to send to China to bring home our daughter. We think she will be born sometime between April and August. This probably means a trip to China in December or January. We can hardly wait to meet our daughter and bring her home! Thank you for your prayers for our family…check back here for updates!
