Joel and I have sensed a calling to international adoption for many years. In May, 2009 God made it abundantly clear that it was time. After much prayer, research and wise counsel we began the process to adopt a daughter from China. God directed us to an incredible agency that was founded by a family with an amazing testimony. This blog is a chronicle of our journey, to inform our friends and family and as a record of events for our daughter to read one day. Join us in the journey... it is sure to be an adventure!

We're Back!

We had a wonderful trip. Grace is amazing! We will be posting continued updates on this original blog, including some Halloween photos in the next few days. Thanks for all of the prayers and support over the past months!


  1. I am so glad to learn that you are back safely with your beautiful new daughter! I originally found your blog while searching for, of all things, the nutritional stats for McDonald's oatmeal! And because a close friend of mine (whose agency was also CCAI!) had adopted two girls from China, I started following your journey. When I look at her daughters who are now 9 and 11, it never fails to move me to thank God for his blessings on them and those of us who love them. I'll be looking forward to updates about Grace. God bless her and her new family.

  2. LOL! You wouldn't believe how many hits I got over that oatmeal post. It cracks me up. Thank you so much for your kind words. We do indeed serve an amazing God. Blessings to you as well :)
