Hi! We are LID 10/28, and also have our little girl's name to be Hannah! I read your comment on the ISOR blog about hearing from your agency - they needed more info! That is good news for you! Now if they can speed up and get you matched it would be even better!!

Good luck - keep us all updated.

We are your fellow Dillon travel buds. Love your website and story! We, too, have always felt that our daughter, Ciana, was a gift from God. Our second daughter is also. We share in your feelings of raising our girls up to serve Him and giving them back to God. Our hope is that our daughters will go back to their people whether it be here, China or elsewhere to teach God's Word. Can't wait to meet you guys when we travel.

Barb, Fred and Ciana

found your blog off Rumor Queen this morning. Loved reading it. My husband and I are also waiting for our referral. LID 10/09/05
We live in Nebraska, U.S.
It never ceases to amaze me, how God works, and that He can use something like a blog to hook up Christians to each other. I will add Hannah to my prayer list. Hope we get to see our daughter's faces soon.


terri said...

I just found your blog from RQ as well. I echo Rachelle's comment about bringing Christians together on this long journey.
I'll add your blog to my blogroll so I can keep up with you.

Got your letter today and pic of Hannah - what a lovely littlest "Ross". Jumping with joy for all of you. So much to talk about. Can't wait to introduce Layla to her buddy. Miss you like mad. Love and grace, Holli Burnfield

Judy, Keith, David & Jeremiah,
We know how excited ya'll must be! She is a beutiful baby girl-I know that I would be "dying" to get my arms around her as you are! I am so proud of your family!
Judy, if you do be able to become a family forever on April 2nd that would have been my mom's (and your grandma's 77th birthday).
We love you and miss you; take care of your wonderful family.
Debbie, Danny, Jerrod, Missy, Justin, and Melanie can't wait to see more pictures of your beautiful family!

It is wonderful to adopt a baby from a different country. I have already adopted 1 million from all over the world and is still adopting. Hope you like Little Hannah!!

I was looking into all the ins and outs of readoption proceedings in Oklahoma wanting to find out as much as I could and somehow I ran stumbled upon your blog. I'm wondering if you ever had any luck working your way through the process of readopting on OK. If so would you email me at In case that didn't make it through it's genece19 at hotmail dot com

Your little girl is so precious! We are now in Alaska but are relocating to OK very soon. I haven't blogged much on our move and am still keeping mum about it until it happens.

Thanks for your time and may God bless you and your family!
Genece and Rick

I am not sure if you read these or not, but I have to leave a comment to tell you how incredibly beautiful sweet Hannah is! I haven't seen her since you got your referral! WOW! Was I behind or what! There was a couple that was in your Dillon seminar that went to my church. Do you remember us talking about them? Anyway, thought you would like to know they just 4 months ago brought home their daughter! Can you believe that??? It's unreal how everything slowed down so much!

Thanks for sharing! You've gotta update more so I can see your sweet family! I am adding you to our blog for sure!
