If I Told You My Story

If I told you my story, you wouldn't believe it.


You wouldn't believe it if I told you that God moved me 300+ miles from the metropolis of my birth to a middle-of-nowhere town and that's where I met my husband.


You wouldn't believe it if I told you that after YEARS of trying to get pregnant and experiencing infertility God gifted us with parenthood through adoption.


You wouldn't believe it if I told you that we traveled to another country to meet our first child through adoption.


You wouldn't believe it if I told you that we went back to that same country 2 more times to adopt our precious children.


And you probably wouldn't believe it if I told you that here we are--going  back to that same country a FOURTH time for our fourth daughter.


It's incomprehensible.

Getting Close!

Well, we are anxiously patiently waiting for our LOA/LSC from China. This is the letter which says China gives us permission to adopt Gladys. Without this document, we cannot move forward in our process. We are on day 55 of waiting...this is on the LONG side for LOA waits in recent months. Not sure why we have waited so long, but we sure hope to receive our LOA this week as all of China will close next week for Chinese New Year.

In the meantime, we decided to launch our final fundraiser before travel: t-shirts.

Simon put a link to our t-shirt "shop" in the right of this blog ------------------------------------------->

Here is the link again, for good measure: goingtogladdie.bigcartel.com

We have 2 styles, 5 colors, and multiple sizes. Please feel free to share this link with your family and friends.

Our goal is to sell 100 shirts!
Thank you for your help!
