"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

Bitter-Sweet day made even sweeter....

Today is a bitter-sweet day, it is the day Noel turns 3.  Eight months ago I thought we'd be home with her, celebrating this day with her. Unfortunately for us, God has bigger plans for her.  Happy 3rd birthday, precious Noel!

To make the day a little sweeter, we received the call this morning!!! We have been given permission from China to travel to bring Tegan home!!!! PTL! My heart is overjoyed!

We now await confirmation of a U.S. Consulate Appointment, which is the final task that needs to be completed while we are in China, to bring the boys home!!! We hare asking for Nov 15, 16 or 17.  We pray then that Corban will be able to be piggy backed onto this appointment when we receive his travel approval next month. Otherwise, travel will need to be pushed back to schedule the boys onto a later Consulate date.

For the cherry on top, we received the following picture from a family who recently travelled to bring their newest family member home.  The picture was taken Sept 14th.

I can't wait to see a smile on Tegan's face - this is the look he has had in most the pictures we have of him.
