I have been meaning to start a blog for a long time. Since we began our adoption journey on 12/31/08, I’ve enjoyed reading the blogs of other families who are in the process of/have adopted internationally. Reading about their experiences has helped me learn about the whole process and what to expect.

We received our referral for Daniel on May 27, and a blog seems like a good way to keep our friends and family up-to-date on progress. It will also help to keep me occupied as we wait…

Here's Brian with the completed application before we drove it to the agency.


  1. It takes really special people to adopt a child, and there is no doubt in my mind that you both are perfect for the “job.” I’m very excited for you both and I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness with your child.

  2. Just came across your blog through “12, 450 Miles”…we adopted our Daniel from S. Korea. He is now 14 months. We became a forever family on Jan 9/09. What an amazing journey!! I’m excited to follow your journey to your Daniel.

    • Hello! Nice to ‘meet’ you. We are so excited! Any tips for first-timers?
