5 YEARS AGO..............

We decided to adopt....We celebrated at Applebees! Crazy enough, that's where it all began, at Applebees!!! We were eating dinner and noticed some friends, whom we haven't seen for quite some time. They had a beautiful little Chinese girl with them. They shared their adoption story with us, as we drove home that night we talked about adopting a little one too. The next day at church we met with our pastors and prayed over our decision. We didn't want to jump into it without covering it in prayer and knowing it was HIS will and not just our selfishness. We felt God leading us.....several years later and MANY bumps in the road, here we are! Every year for the past 5 years we've gone to Applebees to celebrate our decision to adopt. This time we have Sophia! It was a very special night full of many wonderful blessings!!!


  1. very cool!!! Isn't funny how most of remember exactly when the decision became concrete?? Congrats!!!

  2. what amazing gift to receive!
