JAEDON for the Buchanan family — PA
Dale and Lori Buchanan met sometime in the fall of 2003 when Lori began working at Dale’s insurance agency. They would talk each time he came in to pay premiums and eventually discovered that they had a lot in common, both being raised on dairy farms. They formed a friendship and soon began dating and were engaged in June, 2005 and married in September, 2006. Soon after, they were ready to start a family and because of their love for Lori’s sister adopted from China in 2002, they felt called to adopt internationally as well and began paperwork in 2009 to adopt a child from Eastern Europe. They traveled to meet their daughter Kayti in October 2011 and brought her home in May 2012. Almost immediately after returning home, they began discussing the possibility of returning for another child and both agreed that they wanted to when the time was right, or when the right child came along. In May 2013, they saw a 2 year old little boy listed who sounded like he had a lot of the same delays as their daughter. After receiving a bit more information, they are in the process of adopting him from the same country and are so looking forward to this next journey. They can not wait to give Kayti a sibling and hope to complete this adoption quickly and bring him home as soon as possible. They are committed to giving their children the best life possible and are anxious to become a family of four.
