A Journey of a Thousand Miles Begins With A Single Step

By Kristin

This is the start of your sweet little story, the part where your page meets mine.  No matter where your journey takes you, our story will always read LOVE.

Dear Little One,

Your Dad and I always wanted to start a family.  As much as we prayed and planned, we waited and waited.  Five years later, we were still waiting.  I wondered if God had heard our prayers.

Little did I know, he had, and he was about to give us a nudge in the right direction. Your Dad asked me to consider growing our family through adoption.  So I began searching for information on adoption.  I watched a documentary about families adopting from China.

In that moment, my heart melted, and I knew this is what God had called us to do.  He had called us to adopt you!

I was so excited to tell your Dad the news.  Today, I told him I was ready to adopt.  I asked him how he felt about adopting a little girl from China.  He was ecstatic!  We cried and hugged each other.

Later, I called your Aunt Chelsee to tell her the news.  She was so happy!  She couldn’t wait to be your Auntie.  At the end of our phone call she was sworn to secrecy, until we could tell the rest of the family.


Unbeknownst to us, your Aunt Amber, was praying at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton that same night.  She had written a prayer for your Dad and I, and placed it next to a traveling replica of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  On the paper she wrote:  Open Kyle and Kristin’s heart to adoption.
