Starting the adoption process

After visiting with Ben, we started researching adoption agencies and in August of 2008 we filled out our preapplication. Shortly after, we began working on our home study. Our home study was approved on January 20, 2009 and we had jumped our first major hurdle! Little did we know that there would be many, many higher hurdles to come.........

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We all have so much to be thankful for! This year, our little Josie is at the top of our list!

Psalms 105:1 Thank the Lord for all the glorious things He does; proclaim them to the nations.

Our Story!

Okay since some of you are new to our story I'll start at the beginning and add a little every day. This all started when my sister Tammy, my mom, my niece Lauren and I attended a Steven Curtis Chapman concert in Fremont, NE on July 13, 2008. If there is anyone out there who is not familiar with him, his music or his story; I would highly recommend reading up on him. He is a Christian artist and also a HUGE advocate for international adoption.

At the time of the concert, I was perfectly content with my life. I had a great husband, 3 great boys (Noah, Jackson and Trent) who were now old enough to take care of themselves and I was just coasting through life. But God had other plans. He planted a seed in my heart that night of the concert. For the first time in my life, I began thinking about adopting. I tried, believe me I tried to get it out of my mind. A week or two went by and I began doing some research. Immediately the time and money involved were overwhelming. We couldn't do this right? Well, God would not let us off that easy. I ordered an informational packet from a few adoption agencies and didn't say anything to anyone.

I read the packets, watched the videos and decided it was time to talk to Ben. Okay, let me just say, I did not think Ben was going to be open to this idea. Then, I could forget it, right? Wrong!! Ben was immediately open to it and excited about it!! So, okay God, HERE WE GO.........

Welcome to Borgmanns Add 1!


Thank you for stopping by. We set up this blog so our friends and family can follow our journey to China to bring our precious Josie Grace home! That's right, the Borgmann family is adding some pink to our lives and will be forever grateful that God placed us on this journey!

We first saw little Josie's precious face on October 21, 2009 and were instantly in love with her. This is the first picture we ever saw of her. We are now waiting for more approvals and hope to travel within the next couple months to bring her home. We will use this website to update you on every step of our journey so check back often.

Until then, please pray for little Josie. Pray that she will be safe and loved until we can bring her home!!
