Welcome to our Blog!

We started this blog to keep friends and family updated during our adoption process. We will post adoption news, fundraiser reminders, and tidbits of our life while we endure the long wait. We hope you enjoy following our journey to our daughter in Vietnam.

Officially Waiting

We can finally say that we are on the waiting list. We just heard this past week that we have been placed on the official Dillon waiting list. We know that we have a long wait ahead of us, but it sure feels good to say that we are now officially waiting on a referral. We just hope and pray that the referral times don't increase, but we are prepared that things can change at anytime. We have been discussing names for our little girl and the only thing we agree on is that it is probably a good thing that we have the long wait ahead of us because it will take us that long to agree on a name!! Zion thinks he has the problem solved and has been talking about his sister "Baby Sally" for a while now. (He is a huge Cars fan, and the girl car is named Sally..ha!) It may take the entire time we are waiting on a referral to change his mind..he is a pretty determined little guy.

Welcome to the Vietnam group! We are adopting a little boy, Bo, from Vietnam (through Dillon). We live in lower AR and maybe one day we'll meet up. We are big "Cars" fans and have our own Sallie already, she just turned 8 years old.

I hope you have a "peaceful" wait for your new daughter.

Hi Robert & Lesa! Chuck and I are adopting a 3 year old, Rhett Tam, from Vietnam.

Hopefully, you will have a shorter than expected wait for your little girl.

Welcome! We are also a part of the Dillon Vietnam group and are adopting an infant boy. We also have Phil. 4:6-7 on our blog - it's my theme song right now too! Glad to have you all aboard!
