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

Travel Approval!! Tickets to China!!!

There is something special about those two little letters- TA. If you have adopted, are in the process, or have someone close to you who has, you understand just what seeing those letters together will do to you heart. So many emotions flooding into the same space in your heart- excitement that soon you will hold them in your arms, relief that the paperwork and waiting, waiting, waiting are almost over, stress over all the things you still have to do to get ready (even though I've had a year to prepare!!!), concern for the little ones you have to be away from for three weeks,

but most of all..


Grateful that God has allowed me this incredible privilege to have two more children who call me Mama.
Grateful for being allowed to see God at work in so many amazing ways this past year.
Grateful He shouted loud and clear to begin the process to bring home more children.
Grateful He guided us gently to those who will soon be called by our name.
Grateful that He has surrounded us with  those who have prayed, loved and encouraged us throughout the journey, and that we know will continue to do so.
Grateful that we will soon be able to share with our two precious girls just how much God loves them.

We will head to China August 26. We would love your prayers as we go!!


  1. Congratulations on travel approval! Can't wait to follow your journey!

  2. You certainly have our prayers!!!

  3. My prayers are with you! Despite the long wait, things happen awfully fast once TA arrives. I will be following your blog while you are in China, if you are able to write. I wish you all the best. It is indeed like a roller coaster.
