Let’s first acknowledge that this blog has, for a while now, been a bit light on content. We’re still carrying on, though, here in the heart of Texas. Many of you have, by the inscrutable machinations of Google searches, found your way here. And, a great many of you who do visit have done so upon watching our adoption video, aka “The Little Video That Could.” It’s up to somewhere around 6.2 million views. Frankly, it’s amazing and we are glad that you dropped by…no matter how you got here.
An embarrassing confession: We forgot all about the email above! So, for a few years now, people have written to us at that address and we haven’t replied…because we didn’t read them. No doubt, these corresponders have concluded that we’re just the sort of people that feel too important to respond. The irony is that I’m (Dennis) the sort that is truly bad at responding, while Carita is quite good at it. She’s now in charge of responding to emails, so the chances of getting a reply have exponentially increased.
We are now a family of 3, after adopting our son. (You can read more about the specific experience HERE.) When we started this blog, we had no inkling that the journey would bring us here. We’ve learned so much: about the mechanics of the adoption process, the experience of adopting, and about ourselves. It’s been an incredible ride so far!
Thanks for stopping by. We’ve titled the blog “The Chen X Family” because we prefer the delusion of being clever. Actually, the “X” stands for the unknown, as in “we do not know what our Family will ultimately look like.”
We are in the process of adopting a child from China. Will it be a boy or will it be a girl? What sort of personality will our child have? How long will we have to wait? Will there be more than one, someday? So many unknowns, sure, but catch a ride with us and see the stops along the way. Maybe some of those unknowns will be answered as we go.
