What is it about going to Missouri? On Wednesday, October 20th, we received notice that we had been linked to a one-and-a-half year old little girl with albinism waiting to be adopted in China! We had 72 hours to decide whether to proceed with the adoption process. With Gene in Missouri for a family wedding and Brenda at home in Texas, we had a huge decision to make. After praying, speaking with a doctor in Michigan, and talking on our cell phones A LOT, we decided to go forward . As a special needs adoption, the CCAA will now pull our dossier so they can approve us for adoption. This will take approximately two weeks. When Gene told his Mom that these things always seem to happen on the way to Missouri, her reply was "you need to come to Missouri more often!" Please continue to pray for God to work through this adoption process. We look forward to watching him provide as the long wait appears to be getting shorter. Praise God for adopting us as his children and allowing us to follow his example.
