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

Another Day Closer to Home

Today was our consulate appointment. We held up our right hand and stated that all paperwork was true concerning the adoption. Tomorrow our guide will pick up the girls' passports and the final paperwork that we will bring home with us. Once home we will have a bit more paperwork to do- enrolling them on our insurance, KY birth certificates, etc. but for the most part that aspect of our adoption is complete. I can't say I'll miss doing the paperwork.

Waiting for our appointment today was a great time to meet other adopting families and hear their stories. We also meet many new families each morning at breakfast. Some received their first child yesterday- one couple after waiting 10 years. One family was adopting their 12th child (10 of which are adopted). We've talked to families from South Dakota, Ohio, Michigan, Texas, Colorado, New York, Hawaii, Illinois, and more than one family from Kentucky. A family we met yesterday is from a town 30 minutes from where we live. So many like-minded people who share the same passion to help these precious children. It is certainly an encouragement to us.

After our appointment, John took us to a newer area of town, where the 7th and 8th tallest office buildings are located. For a girl from a smaller town, these cities in China are pretty astounding. Guangzhou has a population of about 14 million people.
Two more nights in China!! Can't wait to hug our kids at home!!
