Hello and Welcome!

Hello. Adam here. Robin and I are getting a late start at this blogging thing.... We know many of you have questions about the adoption of Noah, and we'll try to share some of that here.

I'll start with where we are right now, then we'll back up and give some background.

Our adoption dossier was mailed to China yesterday, Friday, Feb 19th. We hope it arrives there by Tues or Wed. We also hope and pray the officials there will quickly review the big document (about 13 documents, all notarized, sealed, and authenticated), so we can get our LID (Log In Date). This will then lead to a travel approval (2-3 months later) and then a travel date.

We are really hoping for June 2010 right now...but we never know. Please pray that we will be patient, knowing that God has a big plan and already knows the future. Our only hope is that we won't slow things down - so we can get him to the States and to medical professionals who can help his heart.

That's the quick (and latest) news for now. We'll be back with other info later. Thanks for your support and your prayers. Adam

We pray for you and Noah daily. We hope for all the best, the Lord will speed up the process so that Noah can get the help he needs. Hang in there Spitler family!!!!

With Love,
Brendon, Lara, and Isabel

P.S. We are having a blast with Flat Stanley and should have the pics back soon.
