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.

Zion's "Gotcha Day"

Four years ago today Jeong, Min Tae was placed in our arms. All the time we spent anxiously waiting his arrival was over. This chubby 21 lb, 4 month old boy changed our lives in such a huge way. We cannot imagine what it would be like without him. He is the sweetest little boy who freely gives hugs and kisses and has a smile that can light up a room. It still melts my heart to hear "I love you, Mommy" several times a day. On the other hand he has always been very strong willed and determined. We call him our high maintenance child! He brings us many challenges as well as rewards. He continues to amaze us each day. He is like a little sponge....absorbing the world around him. He is changing so much and growing up way to quick. I love watching him grow, learn, and become such a unique individual, but I sure miss that chubby little baby. We continually think of his birthmother and hope that she knows how grateful we are for the sacrifice she made. We also hope that she knows how much joy he has brought us and how we love him beyond measure. We are truly blessed to be his parents. I thank God every day for sending me this beautiful little boy.

Zion wore his hanbok to church yesterday in honor of his special day. Today we are celebrating by playing at the park and have cupcakes (his request) with his grandparents tonight. Happy "Gotcha Day" my little man.
