Our Daughter

We are proud to announce the referral of our daughter, Poppy Han-Yeong! Coming all the way from South Korea, Poppy is expected to come home in late July. Let the countdown begin!


I can finally tell the biggest secret I've ever kept in my life! I don't even know where to begin with the turn of events that have led us to our daughter. Everything happened so fast that it's almost a blur! Basically, we decided that with the uncertainty that is going on with Vietnam adoptions and with our agency, it was time to pursue another adoption. Our agency allowed us to put our Vietnam adoption on hold for 12 months, which we still intend to follow through with next year. In the mean-time, we found an agency that solely does Korean adoptions. They have been an absolute dream to work with and made every step of our adoption with them a priority due to how long we have already been waiting. We can't believe we received a referral this quickly and we can't believe that our daughter is so gorgeous and healthy. As Marc said when I told him the news, "All of our dreams just came true". We are so in love with this girl that it is unbelievable.

We are so excited for both you and Marc. It's funny becuase when Jon was saying prayers last night before we ate dinner, the only thing he said was, "Thank you so much for bringing Poppy to Marc and Amanda, and making thier family complete". It was very sweet. We are so happy!!

Congratulations - she's adorable! I think it's fair to say I know a bit about how you're feeling right now, having waited so long, changing gears then having everything shift into overdrive - enjoy the ride! Hope the time passes smoothly and quickly until she's here!
