Why China?


When we started our adoption journey over 3 years ago we were looking to Japan to find our daughter, but God had bigger plans.  Melissa had been a missionary in Japan fro 2 years after college and had always said when (not if) we adopt it will be from Asia.  When the time came we looked to the people she had poured her heart to through ministry.  After two years of waiting for a child through a agency that focused on Japan, we realized it might be another 2 years before we were able to adopt.  The same week we were starting to pray about what steps we should take, a friend at our church returned from China with their daughter and we knew China was were we were supposed to start looking for our daughter.  Unfortunately, we had to reprocess many of our documents but the process moved at a much faster pace.  After changing our focus to China I was able to film some orphanages in Guangzhou located in Southern China and the visit would again confirm that we can make a difference in the world – one child at a time. What’s interesting is I think Mia Kate is going to change our world more.  It is hard to believe that we will be leaving soon, but when we got Mia’s file we knew that she was our daughter.
