How did we get here.....

Thanks for joining us on our journey to adopt a beautiful little girl from the Peoples Republic Of China. We are thrilled to be able to share this story with our family and friend's and to anyone considering adoption, we hope you find the information useful. I know that when we were first researching adoption, reading other families' journals was a huge source of information and inspiration.

As many of you know, Ron and I have been together for about 18 years and married for 5 years. Ron has two wonderful sons, Aaron and Dale, from a previous marriage and they spent pretty much most of their teenage and young adult lives living with us. While raising two teenage boys in a blended family certainly had it's challenges, I wouldn't trade it for anything - they've taught us so much, and I think we will both be better parents as a result. As they grew and moved out on their own, it became more and more apparent to that I was really suffering from "empty nest syndrome" at too early of an age. Ron was certainly noticing this also....

Dec/04 - After years of on and off discussions and research, we decided to bring another child into our lives and decided that China was calling us! So begins our story....

Please join us regularly, as we will update this site with journals and photo's as often as there's something to say (and even when there's not).
