The "Road" Home~

Our journey has truly been guided by the hands of our Heavenly Father~ after losing our son Ryan 10 yrs ago, we waited several yrs before we began trying to have another child (our hearts needed time to heal).  After trying & loss we decided God's plan for our family was to "love the children who are already in this world" our adoption process began 5 + yrs ago~ after "patiently" waiting for our daughter May Lyn, surprise "it's a boy" Grayson Edward. 

On 01-11-11 we fell in love w/a beautiful brown eyed baby boy.  On 01-31-11 we became the proud parents of our precious son & our lives changed forever.  For months we have been trying very hard to bring our son home.  Paper trails, finger prints, home studies, US Immigration delays & our list is continuous. For indiviudals who have gone through this process you know our frustrations, for those who have never walked the path of "international" adoption, one must be patient (which can be challenging), have hope & pray (pray a lot).  After many emails, phone calls, Fed Ex & UPS over night deliveries we were notified Grayson is "FINALLY COMING HOME"......

For those who know our story ....our story is truly about faith, hope, love & strength.  For those who know little or nothing about us....please know our challenges have been many~ but our love has been strong!

Enjoy our story as we travel down this amazing path, uniting a family that has been created by the hands of God.
