We were Dossier to China on January 22.  A few days later, everything closed for the week for Chinese New Year.  We were prepared to have a longer wait due to the holiday.  Did you hear me shouting for joy today when I checked my voicemail??

We are logged in as of today!!!!!!!!!  Faster than expected and we are so excited to be a big step closer to Miss Ava Frances.    This means that our dossier is being translated and reviewed and we'll be officially accepted to be Ava's family in the next 3 months.

Every step of the way, God is proving that nothing is impossible!!  Please pray with us that our paperwork is processed quickly and that our adoption will be fully funded when China says it's time to come get our girl!!

We are still busy with several fundraisers and our donation sites are still open.  Please consider helping us if you can...


Orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.       (David Platt)

Her name is Ava and she deserves to have a family.  Pray with us and help us bring her HOME.  We love her so much and long to hold her in our arms and show her what it means to be loved forever.
