"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

This was not written by me but these words are oh so true...

You may wonder if we were looking for her.. The honest answer is no. Did we think we were done? The honest answer is, we were not sure. The easiest answer would have been to say no. However, once you have been to China and back, you leave a piece of your heart there. I am not sure you can ever truly be done! And, for us..... We have learned that God's plans are not always ours. He does call us out of our comfort zone.. And when He does He promises to go with us. The Bible reminds us 365 times, "Do Not Be Afraid." What a comfort that is. So, we will fix our eyes on the reason that we are called to go back to China! And, we look forward with great anticipation to the blessings that this little peanut will bring. And, until then we give thanks for the opportunity to share our story, and to encourage you who may be feeling called to do more than you could have ever imagined.. Never forget that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things! The key to that is to trust and go and to glorify God through it! ~ Author
