The McDade Family

My photo
Hi! Our names are Shannon, Mark and Summer McDade. We are a family of three wanting to expand our family through adoption. We were planning to adopt from Taiwan, but the wait has helped us change countries to Ethiopia. God has a purpose foreverything and we are going to stay faithful and follow Him.

New To This

I am new to all this blog stuff. I wish I would have started this blog when we first started the adoption. I had a site on Caringbridge for when we started the adoption process. I want to have a blog so I can stay in touch with others that I might meet who are adopting. I am excited about this journey. However, it is a long one. Mark and I have been doing the adoption process for awhile and we still do not have our dossier sent off yet. Hopefully, in a couple of weeks. Who knows? I never thought it would take so long just to get started. Only the people who have adopted before understands what I am saying.
