the finish line is close!

Thank you to everyone who has followed our journey and provided support to our family!  Sage and I entered into adoption knowing that simply, we wanted to help.  We wanted to provide a family to someone who without us may never know the love that every child deserves.  We had no idea how emotional this journey would be!

On October 15th China blessed us with our Letter of Approval (LOA) to adopt Haylie.  Since then we have rushed through more paperwork to different government offices.  The US has now approved Haylie to come to the states.  Our final packet of paperwork is being delivered as I type back to China.  We expect to receive our Travel Approval (TA) in the next 3-4 weeks!  Yes my friends, we are going to China!!!!!  Ideally we will be leaving December 26th and returning home sometime during the first week in January.

Unfortunately we still are quite a bit away from reaching our financial goal needed in order to complete Haylie's adoption.  The international fees include our flights, hotels, orphanage donation, along with visa for Haylie to return to the US with us.  If you feel pulled to help us reach the final steps of this journey, please visit our fundraising page  We appreciate all of the love and support that we received from family and friends during this emotional journey!  One Less Orphan
