**Note from Mindy: Get ready for an amazing hairstyle from a fantastic single dad! Lance is the perfect “Little Girl’s” Daddy, and has a cute little girl at that! Congratulations to Lance for being our February’s Hairdoer of the Month! Here is Lance’s hairdo and a quick bio…
My name is Lance, and I am a single working dad. My adventure began when I moved to Singapore six and a half years ago to teach at an American school there. Living in S.E. Asia provided me many opportunities to travel all over that part of the world–Cambodia, Indonesia, India, Myanmar, Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia. I was amazed at the beauty of these places, but at the same time, I was heartbroken at the great number of orphaned children I encountered. Precious little ones in need of loving homes.
After spending a great deal of time in prayer, I began the process of adoption. Not an easy task being a single dad, but nonetheless a burden that God had placed on my heart. I was quite surprised when the adoption officials in Vietnam sent me a referral of a six-month-old baby girl! But I took one look at that picture, and she completely stole my heart. I completed all the final paperwork, and traveled to Vietnam to bring my daughter home when she was nine months old.
Now my little one is a happy, chatty, and precocious three and a half year old—my, how time flies! After six years in Singapore, I felt it was time to move on. I do yearly mission work in Central America and have a heart for that part of the world, so we are currently living in Guatemala, where I teach at an international school and where my daughter and I are active in a local church. Although we are not the “traditional” family, we are just as happy as can be, and I know that my daughter and I have both been blessed through the miracle and gift of adoption.
