Our Adoption Journey


We are the Brame Family from Southern California. Our adoption journey began in April 2005, when we decided that we wanted to expand our family. We started our paperwork in April 2005 with Chinese Children Adoption International and our paperwork was logged in with China on August 30, 2005. What started out as a 6-8 month wait has become a 15 month wait. We are next in line for our referral of a girl OR boy. We have chosen the name Shayna Lee if we are referred a girl and Brody Gene if we are referred a boy. My name is Loraine and I have a 28 year old son from a previous marriage, Brian. My husband is Gene and together we have twin girls, now age 14, Jacqueline and Dylana. So this will be our "third time around" raising children.

Congratulations on your referral. If you are interested in getting your child's finding ad (which has a photo of her usually earlier than the referral photo), please let us know. We sometimes have actual copies of the newspaper with the ad in it also!

Good luck, and safe travels!
