An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break.

So the big question on all of our minds is "ARE WE NEXT"? Well referrals were just received on March 5 for LID dates up to October 24, our LID date is November 3! So here is my best guess answer. We have a 50/50 chance of being included in this next batch which will probably arrive somewhere between late March/early April. However, and here is the GREAT news, if we do not make it in this one then we will 100% be in the following batch which should arrive between late April/early May! Which then brings us to "WHEN WILL WE TRAVEL"? We are thinking travel will take place sometime in June. So YES our baby girl will be home with her forever family this summer!

A Half A World Away

A half a world away
Sometimes it seems we're so far apart
But a half a world away
Is not too far for a journey of the heart

Our little one, our bundle of joy
We're waiting for you
Our precious daughter, our baby girl
We know you're waiting too

A half a world away
A child waits for a family of her own
While a half a world away
A family waits to come bring her home

Our little one, our bundle of joy
We're whispering a prayer
Our precious one, our baby daughter
We hope to soon be there

Soon you will no longer be a half a world away

Hi, we are Duane and Candi. Two years ago with hearts full of love and joy, we chose a path to follow which would bring our daughter home into our family from the other side of the world. We have four incredible sons....Joshua, Caleb, Kris and Justin and are looking forward to completing our family with our baby girl Zoie! It has been a very long wait but we are now only weeks away from seeing her precious face in pictures which we will receive with our referral. We are hoping to travel in a few months to bring her home so please share in our excitement by following our journey.
