This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Two Small Stockings

Hanging above our fireplace are some Christmas stockings.  On the left there is one that James has used since his first Christmas, one my mother made for my first Christmas, and one for our guest SuJeong.  On the right there are two small stockings.  They have no name written on them and they are not nearly large enough to hold all the gifts I'm sure we'll want to fill them with some day.  They are there to remind us that there are 2 members of our family who are not home this Christmas.   Of course we wish they were here, but we did not hang the two small stockings in mourning.  We hung them in Hope.  

Each time we look at them we will remember to keep praying until the time is right for our children to come home.
