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

Happy 15th Brithday Xiaoyun!

Today we celebrated Xiaoyun's 15th birthday. Yesterday marked marked one year home. We have so much to be thankful for. Xiaoyun had a wonderful day, with her big gift being a little dog from the animal shelter. She's been asking for one since the day after I first hugged her. However, with all the surgeries we knew were coming up (and the fact Enya was scared to death of dogs at first), we kept putting it off. I'd have loved to have video taped her reaction when Virgil told her last night that she was going to be able to get the dog. She was laughing and crying at the same time. I'll post pics tomorrow, along with doctor's updates. So thankful also for family and friends that celebrate with us each milestone in our kids lives!!!

Happy 2nd Gotcha Day Elli!!!!


Today we celebrate Elli's 2nd Forever Day! If you are counting, that means we adopted all three girls in less than a year. This is Elli's latest photo. As you can see, she is quite proud that she lost her front tooth. Since she came home, she had grown over 7 inches. She is a beautiful girl with a beautiful heart. She is such an introvert, except when she is around LiLi, who brings out her humorous side. Her intelligence continuously amazes me (sounds like a mama doesn't it ;-)   ). She is the slowest girl when doing her schoolwork and reminds me of a sloth when it is time to get ready to go anywhere LOL! Her hugs are are worth a million dollars! We love you sweetheart and are so thankful for you!!!!
