I know that so many of you have followed the experiences of Susan's parents and so I am so sure you would want to know about their new decision.
Andy and I have decided, after much soul-searching and many prayers, that we want to pursue adoption in China, even after our 2 losses. We feel that God has a child for us, and that we have the love and desire for another child. I don't know exactly what path we will take, but at least we know we will keep moving forward. Our lives are forever changed after loving and losing Susan and Mandi. We are even more passionate about the plight of orphans in this world. We have an even greater appreciation for how much we have in terms of availability of excellent medical care, the love that exists in our family, our capacity for love and hurt, and our desire to make a difference in the lives of those without families. May God continue to direct our path and our hearts as we seek His will and look for our next child.
What a courageous decision and a willingness to listen to the direction that God would want them to take. I am in awe of their ability not to be defeated by the painful loss of Susan and Mandi. So many people would have given up. I am in awe!!!
Love and laughter,
