Here's Daniel's "story"...
Mark Daniel is 10 years old. He really loves his little sisters. When we found out we were going to have Madalyn back in 2009, he was 8 years old. He was sooo exited to have a little sister! At the time, we only had boys in our family. Six of them to be exact. So when she came, she surely was "extra" special, in more ways than one! :))
Here's Daniel holding Madalyn when we finally got to bring her home from the NICU. So sweet!
He was really happy when we brought the girls home from Ukraine! This picture was taken a year ago when the girls had been home for only about a month. Wow have they changed!!
Daniel was also the first one to say we needed to adopt little miss Hailey when we saw her new picture. :)
Then once we decided we were definitely going to pursue adopting her, he told us very matter of factly that he WAS going to China! No if's, and's, or but's about it. He was going! Lol
After we thought about it, we decided it would be a great experience for him and told him that he would have to raise the money to pay for the extra plane ticket. We went ahead and applied for his passport.
He was super excited to get that passport yesterday!!
Just about every day Daniel tells me he wants to go get Hailey right now! And I am always right there with him!! I can't wait either buddy!! He also tells us all the time ,that when he grows up and leaves home, he is going to take Hailey with him and take care of her. I guess he thinks we'll be too old and unable to do a good job by then. Lol :) Way to think about the future already Daniel!
Anyway, Daniel wants to tell you in his own words, what he is doing.
Please watch this approximately 45 second video.
Daniel really wants to be a part of this adotion and travel with us. To help him raise the funds, this is what we came up with.
