God is Good

Yes He is. He has covered this family with an extra dose of just about everything we needed to get through the past 20 days (with one more to go…kind of…15 hour flight gets in two hours after it takes off…that cracks me up). Thank you to everyone for your thoughts, prayers, encouragement, physical assistance, monetary support, and anything else you provided…aside from God, two other words come to mind as I think of you all….HEART & LOVE. We are overwhelmed by your presence in our lives, and we look forward to sharing the rest of our journeys on this side of the veil with each of you. LET US NOT STOP UNTIL THE WHOLE WORLD HEARS!
A quick prayer request: there are obviously tens of millions of orphans all over the world. But China is near and dear to our heart, so that’s where the prayer request lies. We learned during our oath taking at the US Consulate that 67% of US adoptions from China in 2010 were special needs…even higher % expected this year. That’s wonderful, and we pray families continue to feel led down this path. Unfortunately, that means many non-special needs babies are being left behind. Please pray for the lives of these children and for the red tape that seems to be causing the rather long wait to be matched with one of these little precious lives. They all deserve a forever family. Thanks.
Not sure what tonight in Hong Kong will bring with regard to internet access (or tiredness after a train trip, a Hong Kong train station and a taxi with no guide)…so, this might be it from this side of the world. Goodbye China. Almost home. See you soon. God is Good…all the time.
