We have been blessed with a family that has literally been brought together from the 4-corners of the world. Lynda was born in Toul-Rosieres En Hay, France; Kevin in Chester, Pennsylvania; Amber in St. Petersburg, Russia; Cameron in San Diego, California; Hannah in Zhuzhou, Hunan, China; and now Lauren in Shanghai, China.
Our first child was Cameron, his birth mother Marci lived with us for about 5-1/2 months during her pregnancy. Cameron arrived almost 17-years ago into our lives and has been a blessing ever since. Cameron is a child who is peaceful and full of compassion, always pulling for the underdog and showing love to everyone he meets. Marci is now married in Utah with her husband and daughter.
Amber (22) although our oldest was our second child. We travelled to Russia about 15-years ago to bring her home. Amber is now in her own apartment locally and doing well - especially in her relationship with her boyfriend Eddie. We are so proud of the beautiful young woman that Amber has become and appreciate the support and encouragement she gives each of us.
Hannah came home when she was 18-months old in 2005. Lynda, Kevin, Amber, and Cameron all travelled to China and brought her home. Hannah is a child of such joy, she has a way of always bringing a smile to your face. Hannah loves to laugh, dance, and sing, she is a true leader and will make an awesome big sister.
We are all anxious to bring Lauren home. Kevin, Lynda, Cameron, and Hannah will make the journey this time and we are hoping and praying for some miracles and favor so we can travel before the end of the year. We are however aware that we may not travel until early 2011 and will keep updating on our process as things change.
