I am starting this blog to record our family's journey through international adoption. Bryon and I are very blessed with two beautiful daughters and no fertility issues, so why are we adopting? The truth is that we had this discussion many years ago... long before we had children of our own! While living in Florida, Bryon and I attended a Steven Curtis Chapman concert where we learned about his adoption of his daughters and were introduced to Bethany Christian Services and Shohanna's Hope. It sparked a discussion between Bryon and I, and after this, I always knew that we wanted to have kids of our own as well as adopt. We just didn't know when or how it would happen. Now we have Katie (age 6) and Abigail (will be 4 on July 26th), and things have just been falling into place to allow an adoption to happen, and we are excited and nervous to be officially getting the ball rolling on this journey. I will be using this blog to keep everyone updated on the journey. Feel free to leave comments and follow our blog. Adoption is a roller coaster ride, and we welcome the encouragement and prayers from all of our family and friends.
