Happy Thanksgiving

We had a great time in the NC Mountains.
Forget the Turkey. Claire hams it up at Thanksgiving dinner.
Claire prayed for snow every night for three months before we left and guess what?
We got about 6 inches!!

We stopped at the Cabbage patch kid hospital in Cleveland, Georgia. Claire adopted a cabbage patch baby that she affectionately named "Ella".

****************************Red Thread News*****************************
Although we haven't started on Ella's room, we thought we'd post some pictures of her crib bedding. We can't wait to get started on the nursery. We'll probably start working on it around March.

Happy Halloween!


Thank you for making my costume Nana. I love it!

**********************************Red Thread News************************************
It took longer than we thought, but we have now been officially "logged in" in China as of October 10th
. This pushes our date up to a possible May referral as the wait time is rumored to be moving up to seven months now. However, timelines are pretty unpredictable and only the Lord knows when Ella will be ready for us. I guess we'll just have to wait.

Paperchasing for Ella

Sealed with a kiss

Claire mailing our paperwork for Ella

Well the paperwork is finally done and we have now begun the waiting game. Our paperwork (dossier) has been sent to China and as it looks right now, we should be matched with a baby and receive a referral (picture) around March or April. Of course, we know from past experience that this could change at anytime, but we have also learned that His timing is perfect. We have chosen the name Ella.
Claire cannot wait to be a big sister! We've been talking a lot with Claire about how she and Ella were both born in China and how Mommy and Daddy went to China to adopt Claire just like we will go to get Ella. The other day after explaining all this, Ed asked Claire "Now where were you born?" Claire looked up at him and pointed to his chest and said "In your heart." I guess she has it all figured out!!

Summer Highlights

We had a very busy summer and traveled quite a bit.
Here's a few of the highlights of our travels:

Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride, Indiana, Frost Family Reunion

Conner's Prairie, Denver,Colorado

The Grand Canyon, Arizona

Some people just have to try it.

Grand Canyon also referred to by Claire as "The B--i--g H--o---le"

Las Vegas, Nevada

Yes, this was about as exciting as it got.

It's okay Claire, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!


Welcome to our little corner of the Web.
The Frost Family will soon be adding a new addition.
We are adopting a baby sister from China!
We've created this site to keep our friends and family up-to-date with the process.
Thanks for stopping by.
