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!

I wish.... I wish that being a Christian in today's society didn't turn so many off. I wish that when people heard the word Christian they actually thought of Jesus, His love and His life instead of corrupt leaders/churches, judgement and discrimination. I hope.... I hope that I can be one that helps others see love...His love. I hope I can do more to show that Christians have a set of standards they live by but it doesn't mean we judge, hate, or don't want to be around those who live or believe differently. I hope to not just talk about Christ but to be like Him. I wish the world was different. I hope I can do more to change it.
Why do people assume that just because a Christian has a different view or opinion from others that we automatically must hate people who have the view/opinion we disagree with? I'm not sure when disagreeing = hatred
