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

One More Daughter- One Less Orphan


We are excited to announce that we are soon to be the parents of Emma Fuhao, a ten year old who has waited so very long for her family to bring her home. We hope she’ll be home in the next few months. The girls are looking forward to introducing Emma to all those things she’s missed out on for all these years. Emma has had a first repair of her cleft lip/ palate and, like Enya, will need several more lip revisions and possibly palate revision. She had a congenital heart defect that was repaired when she was almost two, and hopefully will require no more surgeries for that.

Those who have spent any amount of time with us probably won’t be surprised at our good news. Truly, those who have met our other children realize how much adoption has blessed and enriched our lives. God has blessed us so very much and we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to show His love to a child who yearns to be loved and to belong.

We invite you to follow along as we prepare to travel to China once again. If the Lord impresses upon your heart to donate towards Emma’s adoption we would certainly appreciate it. Prayers are even more important and we covet those greatly!!
Our church has partnered with Lifesong to provide us with a $3000 matching grant, which means if we receive $3000 they will match it for a total of $6000. We thank God for a supportive church family who has come alongside us in our adoption journey, and who have a heart for the orphans.

Donations are tax deductible when donated through Lifesong. To donate you can click on the link below and put in our family number- #06655. You can also mail checks (with our family number in the memo section) to Lifesong at:

  3. Huge congratulations! I haven't checked in on your blog for awhile, what a great surprise to read! I wish so much that I was married, I especially wish I was married to a man with a heart for adoption. I feel that there are so many more children in China that I need to call my own, but being single with kids with so many special needs, the logistics are simply impossible alone. God bless you on your journey.
