Adoption

Unofficial announcements have already been made in various circles. This makes it official.
We have submitted an application to the Holt international adoption agency for an opportunity to adopt a baby from China.
`
We're aready deep into the process of qualifying ourselves to be fit parents. Holt is an excellent agency, and they're very careful how they screen applicants. We estimate that it will be at least 12 months before the process is complete.
`
God has already blessed us with two beautiful children in Isaiah and Naomi. Since Naomi was given to us, we have felt the prompting to expand our family in a different way, looking to add to our family a child who doesn't already have a family.

Micah and Jamie-you are a couple I have always looked up to. What a neat thing you are undertaking. I will be praying for you through this process!

That sounds like the perfect addition to the Steele family! I have to say that I was not surprised; a couple like you two have much to give and I am elated for the child that will call you mom and dad. LOVED the Christmas videos! Jamie, you look sooo good, I am jealous! :-)
