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

Eliza NiNi Willoughby!

It's official!!! Ha Nini is now Eliza NiNi Willoughby! Paperwork is signed, complete with NiNi's hand print on the paperwork. After many pics and thank you's, and a note and gift sent to her foster family, we headed back to the hotel. Nini did great throughout it all. She was awake at 4:30 this morning and she and I laid on the bed snuggling and looking at each other until she fell back asleep around 6 am and slept another hour.. Once back to the hotel, she did get in a good nap, and Virgil and I just sat and thanked the Lord for what He has done! Later we went to Walmart and bought a stroller, which NiNi loved, and some more ramen noodles :-) .

This evening we went out with another dad who is here to adopt a sweet ten year old boy, and our guide, Shirley. She had been told of a good Russian restaurant and we went to try it out. The building itself was incredible, and built around 1925. The food was a lot like what we have at home.

Nini is adorable! She loves her little stuffed dog that straps onto her arm, and she keeps it on almost all the time. She is playful and has a sense of humor. She's a lot like some other members of our family in the fact that you don't mess with her stuff. If she wants to share, you're good, but if you try to take something- look out! She also has a bottomless pit for a stomach ( also like some of her sisters). We cannot get over how much she can put into that little body! We're still waiting on our meltdown. She may save it until we have Ximin and then has to share toys- LOL!

Xiaoyun has decided to go to work for FTIA - our adoption agency . She has had an invitation to stay with Shirley- our agency guide, anytime she wants to come to Beijing. She has taken on almost celebrity status here, since she can speak both Chinese and English. I thinks she's enjoying the limelight ;-).

Shirley has been a huge blessing, and has made the whole process so much easier. So glad she's with us.
Thanks for continued prayers! Love to all!
