Phil and I have been married for eleven years. He is a 6th grade teacher; I was a school social worker but currently am a stay-at-home mom. We began an adoption process in 2006 after being told we could not have kids. At the time, China’s wait time was around one year. We watched that time frame expand – which was very difficult! The Lord surprised us with not only one, but two miracle babies in the next 5 years! What a blessing and show of his wondrous love for us! Our boys are 3 and 1. We stayed with our China adoption as we felt that our daughter was there and waiting for us. And now that wait time is nearly over….Our LID is September 26, 2006, and China just matched dossiers from September 11, 2006. It looks like we’ll be matched with a baby and get a referral in late August. We will travel there 6-8 weeks later to get her. So instead of our original plan of her being our only child, she will be the little sister of two doting big brothers!
