Welcome to our story

Join us as we share our family: Darrell, Tracy, Parker, McKenna, Logan, and (pending China Girl). We hope to share stories, pictures, and video of our life and travel. Who knows what all will be shared here.

This will also be the place we share our story of adopting a little girl from China. You'll learn the process we've been through, the coming two-year wait, and our journey to China (hopefully, the whole family).

We'll also share and log all that has brought us to today in that journey. Want to stay up with us every time we blog? If you're not using a blog reader (like Google Reader), it IS the way to go. It's easy! For more information to here.

China? Adopt from where?

I can't even remember the first time I thought about adopting from China. We were living in Vegas at the time (pre-Steven Curtis Chapman's entry into the whole adoption thing). The only way I know to describe is reflecting on Psalms 37:4, God gives you the desires He wants you to have. That began six years of dormant desires.

Why China? People often ask me. My only answer is that China is the only "picture" I've ever had. God will lead each of us; some to foster care, some to adopt locally, some to support financially those who are called to adopt (more about that later!), all of us to pray and act in some way.

How is God leading you? Which desires has He placed in your heart ~ some you may have never spoken?
