America’s Next Top Cockrell

Welcome to this blog.

We want to expand our family and decided that since we have talked about our desire to adopt for the past 11 years, now is the time. While there are many other reasons to adopt - religious, moral, emotional, pragmatic - each alone is enough for us. So, we begin this process independently. It is scary. It is exciting. We are praying constantly and selfishly ask for your prayers as well.

Apparently, in order to start the process of an international adoption you must also start a blog. It is an unspoken, yet necessary, prerequisite for this journey involving mounds of paperwork that will overtake our life for the next year and a half or so. Here it is.


  1. Welcome! Very excited for your family. We adopted our son Myles from Rwanda last May.

    I hope you will find 4-more helpful for support or answer to questions when our forum is up and running.


  2. I am seriously so excited for you and for this lucky child. I hope the process goes smoothly.
