Why Korea?

A few people have asked us why we chose to adopt from Korea. There are many reasons, but here are a few:
1) Healthy infants (5 months and up) are ready to be adopted into loving homes
2) Most of the little ones are taken care of by wonderful foster mothers/families until they are placed with their parents
3) Josh & I meet the age, length of marriage, income, etc. requirements
4) Most importantly, though, Korea just felt "right". We said many prayers and truly feel that our little blessing is going to be born there

So where are we now in the process? Well, last night Josh and I spent a quite a few hours filling out fun :) paperwork like driving record requests, financial assessments, and house floor plans. Much more to come....I try to think that each signature and document is bringing us closer to our baby!

Until next time,
Rach

P.S. Thanks to everyone for the well wishes......its amazing to have such incredible support from family and friends! Thanks, also, for tagging along on our journey - we know it will be worth the wait!
