Meet the Families

The site has recently been redesigned. Therefore this page represents a fraction of the many families that have adopted over the years. Please send us your picture and bio if you would like to be included in this section. You can also see more pics within the homepage.

Adopted with Chosen Ones in 2006

One of the positive things that has happened with our adoption is that, "We keep in contact with Ryan's birth mom." In fact, "She has come to visit us about 3 times since his birth." The thing we liked least about our adoption experience was, "we were matched with another birth mom that changed her mind once we were there and had contact with the baby. We came home without a son and continued in the process."

Our, “first adoption took 8 months” and our “…second adoption took 4 years!” The one thing we didn’t like about the adoption is the “paper work and the wait.” We live in Champlin, MN. If you would like to contact us, please email at dennispruszinske@comcast.net

One of the most interesting things about our adoption is that, “we got back from China on Christmas.” And the part we didn’t like was, “…all the paperwork. Not knowing all the forms after the adoption.” “Lorna swims on a swim team competitively. Logan loves anything to do with cars. He watches The Cars movie at least 3X day!” We live in Monticello, MN.

We are all in the fulltime ministry as a family. Both of my kids are musical. In fact Lilly plays the piano and Isaac is starting the drums. We love to worship. Ministry and people are our passion. God answered our prayer as we came home on Christmas eve with Lily from and China. And couple of years later we were blessed with Isaac from Ethopia.
