Song by “So Far to Find you”

You were broken, abandoned
And crying all alone
We were waiting and praying
And longing to bring you home
And then we saw your face
In a moment you were wrapped up in our hearts
We took a step of faith
And now here we are
Will you let me hold you in my arms tonight
I have come so far to find you
So far to find you
Will you take my love and give up the fight
I have come so far to find you
So far to find you
From a world away, I journeyed
Just to hold your hand
You will never be alone again
I’ve come so far to find you
So far to find you
You were fighting and fearful
You were hiding your heart away
But I was trying so hard to show you
‘Cause there were no words that I could say
If you could see my heart
You would know that all I want to do
Is care for you
Baylee sayings in end – Please help bringing my sister home.

Matched with a beautiful deaf 5 years old girl on May 21. 2019
Log-in Date (LID) received on Jan. 22.2019
UPDATE!!!!!  January 3, 2019 – , We are now DTC!!!!! (Dossier to China)

 

Christmas 2017, we surprised our daughter with an American doll.  She loved and played with it for a while. She came up to us, saying she doesn’t want the doll anymore.  She pleaded with us to get her a real sister that she can talk to, play with, and dress-up together. Our daughter wants a sister that comes from the same country which is in China.  Kris and I choose to trust in God and go through this adoption journey once again. Please continue to pray for us and share with anyone you can.

We have completed our homestudy this past September.  We got our USCIS approval in mail in December!   Praying for all of this to go smoothly. This is a good way to share our story and pray that you find it in your heart to help our this family by donating any much you can.

We have been awarded a $3000 matching grant from We Care for Orphans Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans.

Any donation you make – will be greatly appreciated and will make the difference in this little deaf girl from China.

Thanks! ILY

Little Panda Girl

May 24, 2019

We were matched with a deaf five years old girl from China and was being PA (pre-approved) on May 22.  We are so excited and overwhelmed with this overjoyous celebration with the family.  

We have already fallen in love with our daughter, Kaylee Emily.  Our girl, Baylee is thrilled to be a big sister now and is looking forward to hug and love on this precious girl.  

We may fly out in approx three months (August) if things go as smoothly as possible with paperwork and etc. 

Pray for us!
