Our Story

  • Watching Them Grow
    This blog chronicles our family life from late in 2006 until the end of 2010.
  • Our Journey to Jaden....the beginning.
    Our children were the catalysts to this journey. Read how how they knew what Scott and I didn't and how God used Valerie & Kevin to open our hearts to adding another child to our family.
  • Looking At It From Mom's Perspective
    A journal of our life.....from Mom's perspective
  • China Adoption....Our Journey to Jaden
    Our family blog....the beginning. This is the story that took us from a family of four to a multi-cultural family of six. Here you'll find the ups and downs of international adoption. The paperwork, the wait and then, finally, God's amazing gift at the end of the rainbow.

« A quick hello from the Smith home... | Main | Jet lag? What jet lag? »



We hope this transition to US time goes quickly! We are starting our Visa application, waiting on TN, and trying to think of what we need to get done. When your up and doing more we'd love to have you over. Can I bring dinner by some night this week?


No real advice, Traci....but it DOES get better. Jasmine took two weeks to adjust to US time...Josie was sleeping through the night in four days. The difference with Josie was we kept her awake during the day on days 3 and 4 (no small feat) and that seemed to work....Good luck....if there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. Love - Jeni
