Happy 13th Gotcha Day Makenzie!

Thirteen years ago Kevin and I woke up in LA and anxiously awaited Makenzie's arrival from South Korea.  Our life was about to change forever and we didn't have a clue how to be parents.  We were so thankful that we were finally getting our precious little one that we had prayed for, for EIGHT years!  If you know someone struggling with infertility, adoption or maybe they are just longing for a child of their own please encourage them.  Adoption was a wonderful option for our family, it's not for everyone though.  I can't imagine our life without adoption.  Not only did adoption bless us with 2 beautiful children but we've made so many lifelong friendships, it has opened up a whole new world to us.  We didn't know anything about Korea when we first started the process of adopting and now we could probably write a travel book or at least a brochure, we cook Korean food, listen to Korean music and now my friend Mika has me watching Korean Drama's. Below is a picture of Mika and I with our sweet girls.  Both of our families have become more than best friends, we're family now!
