We have posted various things alluding to an adoption. So yes, we are excited to be adopting a 13 year old girl from China! Oh man, I have a teenage daughter! LoL. So, I'm gonna need advice from dads who have survived! She is deaf and I know that will present some challenges, but nothing compared to what she would have faced if she had "aged out" of her orphanage on March 9th and been deaf, alone, and on the streets. I can't have my daughter live that life. I can't wait to get her home. Pray for me! We are having to really push the paperwork through and we will have to raise all the money prior to traveling (before March) We'll need lots of help to bring our daughter home! Phil

  1. We have a school for the deaf and blind here and we are good friends with a deaf guy at church. I took sign language in college and know a bit but need to learn so much more. This will be so exciting for you! Congrats!!
