Our family is growing in size and in love as we prepare to adopt "Scout," a ten year old boy from China. In January, we first saw his photo posted on Facebook by an advocacy group and he immediately stole our hearts. It didn't take long for us to see that God was clearly telling us that he belongs in our hearts and home. The process has been daunting, overwhelming, and frustrating at times, but we know that we are doing exactly what we are supposed to be doing. We cannot wait for the day when we can hold Scout in our arms and tell him that he is part of a forever family. 

We are so incredibly grateful for the love and support of our family and friends as we pursue this exciting new adventure. We can't wait to introduce "Scout" to the folks who we know are loving him already just like we do. Each of you means so much to our family, and we are grateful for what you will mean to him too.

  1. Our dossier is now in China in the review process. We are hopeful that we'll get a Letter of Acceptance in about a month, at which point we begin the final immigration and visa paperwork to prepare for traveling.

  2. Update 4/14: We received notification that our I800A application arrived at its destination! Now we wait...approvals are taking 30-45 days right now; please pray for a quick turnaround! Once we get our approval, we'll be almost ready to send our paperwork off to China!
