We Are Heading To China!
       We are so excited to announce that we are adopting a baby from China! For many years we have been anticipating this opportunity. We are also excited to include you on our journey.
       Here's a brief synopsis of our journey so far. James and I met in high school. Our junior year of college at Liberty University we began "talking". We quickly realized that we both were serious about each other. Before I officially agreed to date him (actually in an attempt to scare him off) I stated "I want 8 kids. Are you ok with having that many children? Also I want to adopt. How do you feel about adoption?" We've laughed about that conversation many times over the years. And here we are.
       We now have three sweet biological children who are the joy of our lives. They definitely keep us busy! Being a mom was a direct answer to my prayers. Since I was a young child my desire was to be a mommy and have lots of children. In college, through a missions emphasis week, I knew God was speaking directly to my heart about adoption. From then on adoption was never a question of "if" but "when". James shares this same heart and passion for adoption.
       Last fall we began seriously praying, talking, and planning to start our adoption. Now we know this is the time. Through a variety of factors God directed our paths to the China program. To say that we are excited would be an understatement! Lord willing, we should be traveling to China to bring our baby home in about a year. But this is just the beginning...
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
James 1:27
