Our latest Photo

Sorry for the delay in posting. I'm currently swamped with VBS preparations and finishing our dossier. I thought I would share a few photos/videos of our new son. Brett currently lives at the New Day Foster Home outside of Beijing. Here is their web site:
You can find three videos of him under the "Scrapbook" link. Just look for the name "Gideon."

Introducing Our Son

Fu Gao Sheng, soon to be Brett Gao Bolton, was born on April 8, 2006 in Henan Province, China. Brett was born without a left leg, but we've been told this only makes him more determined. We have fallen in love, and we look forward to posting more information very soon!

Growing Our Family

Once you join adoption yahoo and support groups, it's not uncommon to receive emails with photographs of children looking for their forever family. I usually peek at the child's picture and pray he/she finds their family. When I opened my mail two weeks ago and looked into the eyes of Fu Gao Sheng, I knew something was different. Russ and I had talked about growing our family again, and my heart told me this was my son.
After tracking down Russ, who was in DC on business, we contacted our adoption agency. We are now in high speed to finish our dossier and bring our son home.
