Join us on our journey...

Steven and I have officially decided to pursue our Ethiopian adoption. I am extremely excited. I've spoken with our social worker, and we have begun the initial application process. It will be a long, difficult, and expensive process. We are asking for siblings between 0-3.

This is not a decision that we rushed into. As many of you know, we have been trying to build our family for many years. Transracial, international adoption is a complex issue. I hope by creating this blog I will educate myself, as well as others.

This picture was taken last summer in the ballroom where our wedding reception was eight years ago. It is high time we had a bigger family. Hopefully our children will be better dancers.
