More China News!

I've applied to go to China with Shaohannah's Hope again this summer! God still has China on my heart and I've been praying a lot about what Im supposed to do about it. Through sharing about The China Home Foundation and promoting the sponsorship program has been one of the ways I've really felt Him calling me lately but I also feel like Im supposed to go back. So I applied this week to go back with SH this summer and Im praying for God's will to be done! I really hope I get accepted! I miss China and the kids so much. Especially little Michael, I would get to see him if I can go this summer! I'd have to raise about $3,100 for this trip. I know that if its God's will He will provide the money though so Im not worried! :) So if i get in, im gonna need to do a lot of babysitting. Soo... call me. ;)

Holy Moley, They're 2!

Its crazy to think that when we first heard about our precious twinettes, they were only five months old and they are already two years old! Time flies. They are such a gift and I can not imagine life without them. They bring such joy into our home. I love them so much. Here is a brief overview of their amazing little lives.
February, 15th 2007 they were born in Addis, Ababa Ethiopia .
Sweet baby Keren
Sweet baby Keziah
They spent the first 9 months of their lives being loved by the most wonderful caregivers ever.
August 10th, 2007 we recieved the referral for precious twin baby girls and their adorable three year old brother.
November 20, 2007 was the day our lives changed forever. It was the miraculous day God brought us together from opposite sides of the world to be a forever family.
Today they are in North Carolina playing with the brothers that they adore. One of whom is blood related to them, two of whom were from Mexico but born in the United States, joined our family through the miracle of adoption and these five precious children are the greatest friends you will ever meet. Im in awe at how amazing my God is everytime I see them. God brought them from opposite sides of the world to our home in North Carolina, and they love each other more than anything. Its amazing to me. So today, three children from Africa, two from Mexico, and three from Cailfornia make up our family. Its amazingly, wonderfully God. Im so thankful God placed me in my family and chose my family to receive Kezzie and Keren. They are the most amazing little girls in the world.
