Thanks for joining us on our journey to adopt! Our adoption story began years ago with a desire in Andrea's heart to adopt some day. It was furthered by having 2 difficult pregnancies. We still wanted to expand our family, but did not want to experience the stress of pregnancy again. The decision was confirmed by a conviction in our hearts to extend our family outside of the standard American experience. This conviction came to us separately while Andrea was visiting India and Matt was staying with our children. We both believe that we are called to know and love the people that God has created all over the world. What a better way to know and love someone than to have them in your very own family?!

We are currently in the very early stages of the homestudy process, and hope to send our paperwork to South Korea for matching late this summer.
