The Beginning of the Journey

We saw this video at Winter Jam in 2007. It was the final confirmation from God that started us on our adoption journey. We'd felt that He was calling us to do this for several months, and when we watched this video we knew it was time. Thank you, God, for inspiring us to start this journey. Through the bumps in the road, the twists and the turns, He's been there. I'm so blessed to bring Rinnah into my home. Yes, every child deserves a home, but I'm being given much more than I deserve as well. Rinnah will bless me far more than I will ever bless her. :)Read More

I-800 Approval


YAY!! It came today. Another milestone to celebrate, another reason to be so grateful for God's blessings in our life. Now we wait for TA (Travel Approval.) I'm hoping and praying it comes quickly. I am so ready to hold my baby girl!

Registering for My Shower


The wonderful ladies at my church are giving me a baby shower. I registered today at Babies R Us. It was so much fun! And I'm so thankful for all the suggestions given to me by other adoptive parents. Thanks, ladies!
