Our family has been asked by God to answer the cry of an adorable little boy in China to have a family!! He is a special little boy with an amazing, sweet heart even though his physical heart isn't "perfect". We are honored and blessed to answer his cry.

2 Days til we are US Bound!!!

Yep!! 2 days til we head home but who's counting. Not like we can't wait to see all our kids, family, and friends!!! Or have ice in our drinks or brush our teeth with water from the faucet or maybe have a greasy hamburger!!!

We went to the US Consulate today to finalize our adoption!! Yea!!! Then we walked around in this really pretty park!! Guangzhou is very pretty even if it is home to 16 million people!! Jace got to eat popcorn at the park.

Tomorrow we are taking a van to Hong Kong and will spend the night. Then Thursday our flight leaves at 1130 am, arriving Chicago 12 pm the same day!! Guess it's kind of like being stuck in time for 12 hours!!

Have enjoyed our time but ready to be back!! Jace seems to be adjusting well. Pray for safe travels home for us. Also pray for 2 other special families who are heading to China to get their sweeties!! Vincent and Lucy Kate will soon be with their forever families!!! So happy for them!!

Even though the Race for Jace seems to be closing for us, it is really just beginning for Jace.
He has lots of changes and adjustments as he comes to America. Also he has many medical issues that need addressed which won't always be pleasant for him. Please pray for him and us to help him through this as he starts his own race with his forever family!!


  1. You're on the home stretch now, guys! I imagine that you miss your other children terribly, and I imagine that they are very excited that you'll soon be home with their new brother!


  2. So glad you're almost home. Jace looks so happy! I love it!

  3. The picture of him kissing his Mama made me cry. I can't wait to see that sweet smile in person!!!
