The McDade Family

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.

What has been happening???

Summer started kindergarden last week. Mark and I both took off work to take her to her first day of school. We picked her up and took her out to lunch after school. It was a fun day for all of us. No more missing days at work for a while. She was a little scared the first day, but now she loves it. I am so happy that she likes her kindergarden class. I know she will do good at school and she will be around other kids all day long. Summer has been home with me for the last five years and now she is gone all day until I get her from school. This is her first full week at school. I already miss her not being here all day. I miss not having my little lunch buddy here with me. I know it will be great for her!!!!
Here are some pictures of Summer on her first day of school.

Summer you are so special to mommy and daddy!! We love you very much!!!! You will be a great big sister one day soon!!!! I cant wait for the day when we can all go to Taiwan to get Mia and bring her home!!!! It will be here before we know it.
