Our First Blog Post

Hey -

Welcome to our Blog! We're glad you decided to vist and pray that God will use this Blog in some small way to encourage & bless you in your journey with Him.

We started this Blog because we have just begun an amazing journey of our own - we are in the process of adopting our first child from China! We are excited and look forward to all that God will teach us along this journey.

It was a really moving time, and on the way home that night, we felt like God was leading us to start the process now, with LifeLine. LifeLine had been recommended to us by the daughter of a close friend who had recently adopted a child from China through LifeLine.

So, on Friday, Setptember 1st, we started filling out the 8 page application, which we finished and put in the mail on Monday, September 4th. We got word on Friday, September 8th that our application had been accepted, and that they would be contacting us for the next steps. At present we are awaiting our Dossier Kit, what we are told is a massive 3 ring binder full of paperwork and reading assignments. It should be here the week of the 16th ...
