We've heard that our travel date will be the end of May or first of June. The waiting is the hardest. Please be praying for Jonathan that the Lord will surround him and protect him.

And for those of you out there that have adopted an older child, any advice you have would be greatly appreciated! You can leave me a comment or email me at hansinais@yahoo.com.


  1. Yay!!! How wonderful! It is coming up fast! SO excited for you.

    Be blessed

  2. Blessings to your family and safe travel when you are able to go. We just adopted two older children (9 & 13). Best advice? (I'm assuming English is limited or non-existent.) See if you can find a hand held electronic translator. Using a bilingual dictionary style book takes way too long. Also, find out all you can about the culture while you are there regarding men and what is expected of males in their country. Watch younger men and adult men while you are there. You will learn alot about him that way. Probably most importantly, patience. ALOT of patience :) He may test you much like a 2 year old would. With that said, congrats to you! Older child adoption is so hard, but it can be very rewarding once you get through the initial adjustment. Best wishes to your family!

  3. Good day! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted
    to give a quick shout out and say I genuinely enjoy reading
    through your posts. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same subjects?
    Thanks for your time!
