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

Almost to Meimei

We spent a nice, relaxing day getting to know a little more about the section of Guizhou that we are staying in. The surrounding mountains are really something to see. Surprisingly, we are just a few minutes from the famous monkey park. We went there when my mom and I were here to adopt Xiaoyun, and will get to go again this trip. It is something I am looking forward to showing Virgil and the girls. We browsed through the little stores all around our hotel. While we were out walking, a Discovery Channel vehicle drove into the park. It will be neat to perhaps one day get to see a segment on a place we have visited. Erin enjoys walking, and is quite patient when we are shopping. She doesn't ask for anything (except audio books), and is content to just be out and about. We did find her a goat that matches the one our guide, Harry, gave her except that it is smaller. I'm not sure, but I think I was just as excited to find it for her, as she was to get it. Having a baby goat to go with her mama goat made her jump up and down with excitement.

Tomorrow is the day we have anxiously anticipated for almost a year. We sent in our Letter of intent September 11, 2014. It is hard to believe Meimei will be our daughter in less than 24 hours. I woke up through the night thinking about her foster family, and the fact that this was their last full day with her. I pray for them (and Meimei) that they will have peace about the adoption. I'm sure it will be difficult. We leave the hotel at 1:30, and meet Meimei at 2:30. If the Lord wakes you up through the night, we'd sure appreciate those prayers!!! We cannot wait to hold her in our arms, but we also know that, though we have been waiting and excited for a long time, she has only known for a few weeks that she will become a part of our family. We look forward to posting pictures tomorrow of our beautiful, newest daughter!!
