puzzle winner

51 puzzles pieces so far.  Keep 'em coming, everyone!  

I'm sure you're dying to know which picture we chose, right?

Well, the winner is...

It was fun to read all the texts, emails, and blog comments about the pictures you guys liked.  I liked them all, but at the end of the day Kevin and I both thought this one represented our journey the best.  The path, a little beaten but still beautiful, lined with cherry blossoms...perfect.  The only thing I'm not loving is that this pic is from Japan.  Oopsie on my part.  I thought they were all Korea pictures.  Oh well, the idea is the same.

This has been an intense year.  At the end of the day, we really can't complain because our adoption has been much shorter than most.  We were blessed with a relatively calm process, though we didn't know it at the time since this is our only experience.  Even so, there's been lots of (good and bad) emotions and we're glad to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  After she's home a new set of issues will surface, but right now we are focusing on getting her here!  

Only a few more weeks!!

I just placed the order for the puzzle, and I promise to update with pictures of the puzzle as we put it together with your help!

Sending Hugs


  1. SOOOO excited for you guys! I can't wait to see the puzzle all put together!

  2. I LOVE this idea! My husband, Brandon, and I have had adoption in our hearts even before we got married, so I love seeing like-minded people! I actually met your husband this past week in Enterprise, AL. Rush of Fools was gracious enough to come perform and hangout with our youth group. I loved hearing his story and passion for adoption. He lead me to your site and please know that we will be praying for you guys. I can't wait to "follow" you guys on this journey!
