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.

Adoption Party

We had the best adoption party last weekend thanks to Angie McDade for hosting the party for us! She did a great job and it was so much fun!! We had lots of family and friends come to celebrate Connor joining our family. I want to thank everybody that helped make this party a huge hit. Here are some pictures from the adoption party.

Mark and I were so surprise with all of the decorations!

Here is Connor's ultrasound:

This is so cool. The tree is for everyone that came to the party to leave their fingerprint. I framed it and put it in Connor's bedroom so he would know how much he is already loved.

It matches great in Connor's bedroom! I can't wait for him to be here!!!

Two new friends of mine Sallyanne and Ashley came in their ice cream truck to give out ice cream to all of the kids. So sweet.

All of the kids played on a slip-n-slide and had a blast!! What a great idea for the kids..

Here is our beautiful cake that a friend of Angie's made for the party. It was good too.

We just can't wait for Connor to join our family. We were so touched by how much our family and friends already love Connor. We thank you all for the gifts, food, donations, and for praying for us. We love all of you very much.

Soon there will be signs at the airport saying, "Welcome Home Connor"!! I just can't wait for that day to come!!
