A little over two years ago we began this adoption process.  Honestly, I don't think we had any idea the amount of time, money, and emotional resouces that it would take to see the whole process through.  As of a few weeks ago, we received our official letter of acceptance from the Indian government stating that Saniya Ison was officially part of our family.  We are now waiting on one other document to be processed and then we get our travel dates to go and pick her up and finalize this whole process.

It's been a long two years, but like anything else good and valuable, it takes lots of hard work and sacrifice before you can reap the benefits.  When we started this process, our hope was that we could change a little girl's life socially, economically, and spiritually.  While all those dreams will come to fruition soon, I also know that this process has changed us in ways that we probably never dreamed of.

This process has taught me that life is not always about the destination, but about the journey to get you to that destination.
