Drumroll Please...Baby C's Birth Country

That's right...South Korea!!!!!
We decided we wanted to go ahead and reveal Baby C's home country, because we've had to tell several people due to mom's illness.  So, we thought, why not?  That means more people will know and more people will be able to pray for Baby C with us!

Judy, our social worker, thinks that we will get our referral by May/June.  Mr. C and I are SO EXCITED!  We're also excited that Holt has been in Korea since 1954; it's amazing, and we feel so good about that.

Traditional hanboks for boys and girls...I'm GOING to get Baby C one of these as soon as I know what gender s/he is!
So, there you have it, friends!  Within a year, God willing (and He IS willing, AMEN!), we will be in Korea to bring Baby C home.  God is so good!  We are so blessed!

All the Love in the World,


  1. Woohoo! My husband's family is from South Korea :) So exciting!

  2. Yep! He is Korean, and a lot of his family on both his mom and dad's sides are still there. My husband was born and raised in CA, but he visited Korea a few times when he was little. Unfortunately, I've yet to visit. One of these days, probably in a few years, the whole family is going to go over together. If we ever adopt, it would probably be from South Korea. So happy for you!
