In the summer of 2001 we took Kynzi and Karston with us to adopt Haakon & Nyah from Ethiopia. Jeanne-Ann was ready to make this move for over 5 years, Erik not so much. After a lot of conversation and a ton of prayer we both got on the same page. Crazy! This was an 18 month process or so, and it was totally worth the wait!
