A warm day, Chinese New Year, total cuteness...

Today is a beautiful day here. About 65 degrees which is much needed after all the 20 degree weather we've been having. Jeff and I did a little yard work while the little ones played. So nice to get them out of the house for a bit! Hope they sleep well tonight.

Yesterday we drove up to Kingsport to go to the Chinese New Year celebration with Our China Angels (that's the group name, not our kids ;) ) We are so incredibly blessed to have such a God centered CNY celebration so close to us. The last two years, we have had Orphans from Living Hope orphanages come to perform for us. Last night they performed to the song 'No Orphans of God' which is an emotional song as it is. During their performance, one of the little boys runs to Jesus and Jesus scoops him up and carries him onstage. By the end of the song, all the children onstage are worshiping at His feet. I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it. Beautiful! These are kids that are unadoptable and will remain in China but they are being taught about God's love for them and they will be such bright lights in China. You can sponsor one of these children for $25 a month. Here's the link: Allie and AnnaClaire picked out our child. A beautiful little girl named Emma in Fuzhou.

Coralie loved dancing along to the Chinese music. I think she's done this before. The outfit she is wearing is one we had custom made for Allie when she was 9 months old. Coralie is an itty bitty.

And last, I must share another picture of our tiniest blessing because she's so stinkin' precious. When God started to speak to our hearts last fall about adopting again, never in our wildest dreams did we think it would go so seamlessly. I can't tell you how much we ADORE this kid! If we could just break her of her 'Signing Time' addiction, she'd be about perfect. :)

Davids' Story: URGENT NEED!!!

Please read about this precious boy...and PRAY! It will take a miracle for him-thankfully God is in the miracle business! The thought of a child aging out of the system is hard enough to bear but the thought of a child being told that a family is coming for them and to have them change their minds at the last minute is unbearable. What must this poor boy be feeling?

I Will Be A Carrier: Davids' Story: URGENT NEED!!!: "Earlier today I posted 'a plea for a boy in Latvia,' and later received more information about his story.  It is heartbreaking, and he ..."
