Taiwan, Here We Come!

We are leaving in 2 days to go to Taiwan to bring home our son. We are so excited to meet all the wonderful people who have been caring for him during this time. It is hard to believe that after all the paperwork hassles, government red-tape, hours on hold, emails sent, calls made, and pictures received, we will meet him in person on Tuesday morning Taiwan time (Monday night U.S. time)!!! We are so happy, excited, and in awe of God's blessing in making us a family from opposite sides of the world. I'm reminded that we titled our blog "heart to heart". In just a few days, we will be able to hold Nathanael heart to heart and tell him how much we love him and have been praying for him.

"I prayed for this child and the Lord answered my prayer and gave him to me." I Samuel 1:27


  1. My husband and I are so excited for you. I have loved following your journey and have cried and prayed over your posts. We have just started the adoption process to the Home of God's Love. My heart is bursting this morning as another child will soon be united with his family. God is good!

  2. I just read your most recent blog post, Alicia. Praying for you! Are you on facebook?

  3. Congratulations on your little boy!~ I know you are beside yourself :) My boy is there too :) We are awaiting THE DAY to get to pick him up at SLC :)
