Bring Li Qi Home from China

As many of you know, we are in the process of adopting a little sister for Hannah. We started down this road in 2007 (yes, it has really been that long) when our doctors informed us that we were both infertile. God disagreed, and in 2011 we were blessed with a beautiful birth daughter, Hannah. But our Chinese baby remained in our hearts and we continued with the ever-lengthening adoption process. Finally, just before Thanksgiving of 2017, we were matched with our beautiful daughter. Li Qi is an orphan in Guangzhou in the Guangdong Province of China. We hope to meet her and bring her home this Spring.

This is an expensive proposition. Our anticipated expenses include adoption agency fees, in-country fees in China, legal fees at home, and travel expenses including airfare and in-country expenses. A Chinese adoption trip requires about two to three weeks in China.

We are asking you to help bring our precious daughter home. We are deeply grateful for anything you feel led to contribute, including your prayers. Your support is a great blessing to us and to our new daughter.
