God's Plan For Us

This is our journey - God's incredible plan for our lives. When we followed the moving of the Holy Spirit, He opened the windows of Heaven and poured out upon us blessings we never dreamed of! Indescribable joy!

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

4th Day Down

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here is how Xiaoyun is feeling:
Mama winning at Trouble

Baba getting a hearty laugh out of Xiaoyun - a beautiful sound!

Today was the best day so far. She is up to 16 pounds (maybe 17lbs. by the time I finish writing this). The only problem today was a little nausea. The smell of the food seemed to bother her. They are concerned she is not getting enough nutrients and are trying to find some sort of supplement drink she can tolerate. She can tolerate oreo cookies however  ;-) !!! She took several strolls around the floor and moved her head quite a bit more while in traction. Thank you all for continued prayers - they are working!!!!


  1. Yay for oreos, and a forever mom and dad to see Xiaoyun through day 4! Continued prayers!

  2. Oh Cindy!!!! I have been praying for your sweet girls and will continue to pray! We sent her a little something in the mail today and I hope some friends of mine might be sending cards, etc as well!

  3. May I offer a suggestion? I hesitate because blogs often seem to invite unwanted advice. I am a labor coach, a doula, and one of the foods that seem well tolerated during times of great nausea is Japanese miso soup. Papaya enzymes may also help. These foods help when one has the flu, too.

  4. I love that last photo! What a blessing to read that Xiaoyun had a good day!
