I made my first trip to Haiti in 1998. Fell in love with my first orphan in 2000. Started a non-profit to help Haiti in 2003 and started taking teams down on short-term mission trips soon after. I fell in love with Wanna and Fritzon (and a lot of others in the same orphanage) in March of 2010 and had to wait over 2 years to start the adoption process due to the laws of Haiti and a process that is always changing. Our documents were finally submitted and accepted in the fall of 2012 and are currently moving through the court system. We are quickly (hopefully) approaching the end of our adoption. This is my blog to talk about all things related to our adoption and any thing else I think is relevant to it. Enjoy!

Yesterday I got some very encouraging and exciting news about our Haiti adoption...there has been progress!! It's hard to explain the process because it's just not like the US adoptions BUT I can say that we are actually getting closer to actually bringing them home instead of just sitting idle and waiting... however, there is still a lot more sitting and waiting to be done and a Haiti adoption is never a sure thing until they are on US soil....so keep praying for us! I appreciate all the love, encouragement and support we've gotten. I don't post a lot about it because there isn't always a lot to say except we are waiting but it's so encouraging to have so many supportive family and friends.... even if some of you think we are crazy. :)
