Welcome Home, Gracia and Daddy

Filed under: Uncategorized — schoffield @ 8:57 pm

Our journey to bring Gracia home was an amazing, eye-opening, faith-building experience. An experience that we wouldn’t give up to bring home this precious child. Not a day went by that we weren’t reminded of God’s awesome power to do the seemingly impossible.

We couldn’t have walked thru the fire without our faith and our awesome friends and church family who prayed for us and stood beside us. We were also blessed to be joined with our other new Michigan family members who were on the same journey. The Lord surrounded us on two continents.

Thank you for coming with us on this unforgettable journey. Thank you for standing in the gap and praying us thru!

Welcome home, Gracia Joanne!

*Special thanks to our photographer, Jennica! You’re a most awesome friend!



  1. I am sooooo glad you are all together in the same place! The pictures are beautiful. I know it must have been an amazing time introducing the kids to one another. We are praising God with you for the mountains He moved to bring your precious one home.

    Much love to each of you!

  2. Congrats! I received the email of your precious one so many months ago and prayed and dreamed of the family that God had in store for her. I am so thankful to see her come home for good!
