And no, I’m not just going to number off my posts!  That’s cheating. 🙂  I’ll start thinking of interesting names soon!

“Why is adoption so expensive?  I feel like we’re BUYING children!”  I said a while back while we were talking about adoption.

“We’re not buying them,” Spencer said, “We’re ransoming them.”

“Adoption is redemption.  It is costly, exhausting, expensive andoutrageous.  Buying back lives costs so much. When God set out to redeem us, it killed him.”  –Derek Loux

I know adoption is expensive, I know it’s exhausting.  I know it’s costly: it is wearing on us–emotionally, financially, physically.

But it’s worth it!  SO worth it.

Michael has been worth it.  Worth every penny–worth WAY more than that!  And I know Lucy will be too.  She already has!

“Adoption is the gospel in my living room.” -Katie Davis

Greetings all!  I am soo excited to have my own blog!  I have enjoyed reading them for a long time, and have been looking forward to having my own!

My name is Hanna. I am almost 14 years old, and in 8th grade.  I live in the suburbs of Omaha, NE.  I have a Mother, a Father, and four siblings: Becca, 18; Spencer, 15; Michael, almost 3; and we are looking forward to adopting Lucy from China.  You can follow our adoption journey on our family blog here.

I enjoy reading, writing, baking, playing outside, playing with Playmobil and Calico Critters, playing with my siblings,  and going on adventures.  One of the greatest adventures I’ll probably ever take is coming up at the end of this week: going to China to bring Lucy home!  It is my first time out of the country, and I am SO excited!

I go to Waypoint church with my family, and am a believer in Jesus Christ.  I read my Bible daily (or am working towards it at least) and am a part of several Bright Lights groups.

I am hoping that you can find entertainment and encouragement by reading my blog!  Have a great day!
