Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog! After 2 unsuccessful tries at starting a blog, it appears I have finally succeeded! This blogs started as a way to document my life as a pastors wife (failed), then to document my life as an expectant mom (failed - details to come) and finally a way to document all the steps we had to go through to adopt our son from South Korea!

I am married to a Presbyterian pastor and we live in a small town in Nebraska. When we got married, we both knew it was part of our family plan to adopt but we tried to start our family the good old fashion way first. In 2006 we lost our daughter due to complications from a rare disorder 14 hours after her birth. We had no idea she was sick and were just devastated. After another unsuccessful pregnancy (different problem this time) we decided to stop trying for a while and sought to adopt from South Korea.

God is good! He not only cleared the way for us to adopt but he brought us our son just 2 months after our home study was completed. We are just days away from the long awaited call with news of our sons arrival in the US!

Thanks for checking out my blog, I hope you will stay awhile and get to know us!

Hopped on over from the bloghop. I am sending many prayers your way for a speedy arrival of your son. We came home from China in January. The hardest part was having her picture and waiting for the call to go and get her. I am so excited for you!

Many Blessings,

Hi!! Congratulations on your son! What an exciting time for you and your husband. Our children were adopted from Russia and Guatemala and waiting for THAT call is nerve wrecking and exciting all at the same time!

God be with you on your journey and I pray your son is in your arms soon!
