Welcome to our journey! The decision for us to adopt a child from China has been one of the most exciting things that we have done! We had no idea that a child half a world away could already be in our hearts....this is our journey to bring him home.

One more step!

We are one step closer!  We have all of our documents that were notarized back from the Secretary of State and  they certified them all!  They were very good about getting them back to us quickly......only 3 days!!  I could not believe that we had them back in such good time!   Now we have to send all of the documents on to the Chinese Consulate in Chicago....hopefully they are as good about getting them back to us as fast!  When we get them all authenticated there we can send all of our documents that make up our dossier on to China!! Can't wait!!
