Becoming a family of six

Our family at Crooked Lake last summer! Naturally, Murphy's law dictated that two days after I ordered this we found out that we are adding to our family......FINALLY!

Jamison, Megan, and Davis: waiting to be a group of four (meaning: Kenton and I will be seriously outnumbered!) Wendy and Natalie Guingrich made these pajamas for them for Christmas. They even made one for........
Sheng Ying Ying. She's grown in our hearts over the last 3 1/2 years. It's been a long wait and we are so ready to be a family of six. She's currently living in Guangxi, China. We leave January 27 to finish the process of making her ours. After cherishing the above picture for last six months we got these updated pictures last week.
Her referral information said that she's smiley, energetic, sometimes obstinate, and her favorite thing is to be outside with her foster mom. She should fit in with our gang just great! :D
Smiley she might be....but we haven't seen it yet. We can't wait to bring home Kaitlyn Ying. She's been through a lot in her 26 months and we'd value your prayers as we become her forever family and she learns to trust that we will never leave her.


  1. Congratulations on your new daughter!
    She is beautiful!
