Let the journey begin!  We are so excited to be finally starting our adoption expedition.  So far we have three home grown sons and another (potentially female) sibling on the way.  I'm sure you're thinking "Are these people crazy??".  To that I say, aren't we all?  I promise we're not crazy, we're capable.  We are finally in a position to help these children and give them the love and family they deserve.  One of my favorite quotes I've heard so far on this journey was "Availability is rarer than ability."  So although we may not be fully equipped to handle everything we are more than happy to try.  Another fabulous quote: "The Lord doesn't call the equipped, he equips the called".  So true!  We are so grateful to the Lord for bringing us here, for the lessons he's taught us and the patience we've learned.  God willing we can get our ducks in a row quick enough (paperwork wise) and all the government people will quickly do their part to bring this little lady home.  Dare to dream?  Perhaps.
Join us as we embark on what is sure to be a very memorable year.
With Love,
Gretchen & Chris

  1. So excited for you! Love the quote. I was an advocate for a RR kiddo who was just matched with his family. We used to live in Mtn Home too for an AF assignment. Hope you are enjoying it! We loved it!
