Here we go again!

We are once again feeling lead to adopt! Maybe you think we are crazy, that's ok. Because it doesn't really matter. All that matters is obedience to God. She's 13 and living in China, and we are committed to bringing her home. So now we are making phone calls, collecting paperwork, and praying like crazy. She will be 14 in a year so we need to move quickly as that is when she will "age out" and become unadoptable in China. God direct our every footstep to our children. "Not by might, Not by power, but by MY SPIRIT say the Lord Almight!" Zech 4:6

We can't share photos online until we have been formally approved. But I'm excited and so is Brad!!!

Adopting is never an easy, walk in the park, experience. It's got to be the longest pregnancy, labor, and delivery known to women! Asher's pregnancy took an eternity...but oh, so sweet once he finally came home. God teaches through those days of waiting for something to happen. I have rivers of journal entries I may share throughout the year. China is a bit easier than most countries...at least you expect some kind of timeline to be followed. But I'm really not sure "easy" is a good way to describe waiting. I can't wait until I can show you a picture of this beautiful child. Our Li*ue (Leesheh) is not far from Beijing.

You said it - "All that matters is obedience to God"!! You go, girl!! My husband and I have a 10-year-old daughter we adopted from China in November 2008; I leave for Beijing May 14 to bring our soon-to-be 12-year-old son home; we are waiting for our 4-year-old daughter from the Democratic Republic of Congo to be escorted home. We believe as you do - "All that matters is obedience to God."

May God bless you on your journey!
