*Because we wanted a child

*Because we wanted to be parents

*Because a little girl needed a mommy and a daddy
*Because every child deserves a mommy and a daddy
*Because our daughter was in China
*Because we saw a picture of a little girl, and we just knew…she was ours
*Because she is our child, our REAL daughter
*Because every child should have someone to calm their fears and wipe away their tears
*Because God led us to her
*Because adoption is how we chose to build our family
*Because birthdays are meant to be celebrated with a family
*Because when we got the call that she was ours…we felt peace
*Because families are more than common DNA
*Because even kids with medical needs deserve a family
*Because I am her real mom
*Because babies are not the only ones who need families
*Because the fact that there are 6.3 million orphans in the world breaks my heart
*Because we believe in adoption., and we ourselves have been adopted into God’s family
*Because LOVE
