Our Little Springroll

Our first born is Vietnamese! This is an account of the journey to our baby.

Our Story February 23, 2008

We have created this blog to to share our adoption story with our family and friends. Long before we were married or learned of our fertility limitations, we discussed adopting some day. Well, that day is now! We are excited to be adopting an infant from Vietnam and look forward to sharing the details of our adoption progress, education and experience.

Since “Our Story” is the most visited page on this blog, I assume people may have some questions about who we are or some of the other details of our story. I realize that I haven’t put much of that information on this blog. If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comment section of this page or send me an email and I’ll be happy to answer them! Whether in an additional post, or a Q&A on this page, or in an email…I’ll try to be as honest as possible. If I’m not prepared to answer it, I’ll let you know that, too!
