Love From Afar

A family's love for a child begins long before his or her first breath is taken. Our love for Paige began in September of 2004 when we signed the adoption application with Children's Hope International.

Long before Paige was born, her waiting family (Kevin, Carla, Chelsea and Haley) began to pray and prepare for her journey home. Many months, even years, have passed since the application was approved. Birth and marriage certificates were ordered. Passports renewed, seminars attended, documents notarized, certified and authenticated, all as a part of the journey to bring our baby Paige home.

As we mailed our completed dossier to CHI and then on to China in September of 2005, we began to wonder where our little Paige could be. Is she still developing in the womb of her birth mother? Is she being cared for in an orphanage? Is her little ears hearing sounds that will always remind her of her culture? How long will it take to bring her home? All of those questions, could only be answered over time.

Join us in the journey.

Saturday's Tours

Today was a long day of tours. We began with TianAnMen Square & the Forbidden City. We had a Peking Duck Lunch and orientation after. Just about the time we were ready for an afternoon nap, they hauled us up to the Great Wall for a little hike. I will try and post some pictures tomorrow.

We leave at 8:30 in the morning for the airport. We should arrive in Wuhan sometime after 12:00. We will have the afternoon to get ready for Paige. We aren't sure exactly when our appointment is on Monday, but we are hoping it will be early in the morning.

Thanks for all your prayers!
