Paperwork and milestone dates . . .

We finished and released all of our paperwork in May, 2005 and were DTC (Dossier to China) June 6, 2005.

We received our LID (log in date), which is June 20, 2005.

Now we begin to count the days, the weeks, and the months. We're told it will take six to seven months before we receive the referral which will include photos of Ana and information about her and where she currently lives. We are praying to receive her photo by Christmas. As you read this, we ask that you pray to that end.

Benefit Concert with Groove33

The Groove33 Benefit concert was held on June 10 and was a blast! Thanks so much for those of you who came out to support us and enjoy the time together. The highlight of the evening was Josiah playing his drum set along with the band on the last song. He rocked the house and got a standing ovation! It downpoured that evening but didn't keep our faithful friends from showing up or others with simply a fond heart for adoption! We were very blessed! The concert raised close to $2000.

More Kozibean photos

Benefit Concert at the Kozibean

Hello. We're Ed, Kris, and Josiah. We would like to share our journey to bring our daughter, and JT's little sister,home from China. It all began in the spring of 2005 when God told us to "go to China" to add to our family. Josiah came home from preschool a few days later to tell us that his little sister was going to be named Ana (that's Ah-nah, not Anna!) So Ana it is!
On June 3rd, Ed's band, Groove33 played at our favorite coffee house. It was great fun. We had a packed out crowd and raised some money to bring Ana home.
