Traveling to China!!!

Dearest friends and family,

First and foremost, we thank God for His amazing provision and guidance through this long journey.  His faithfulness has been demonstrated to us time and time again!  How awesome is it that He is allowing us to take Grace Lihua (the Chinese middle name we have picked out which means "beautiful flower") into our arms for the first time on Sunday, May 8, 2011 (Mother's day)!

Your love, support, encouragement and prayers have been amazing.  As it says in Romans 12:15, "Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn."  Throughout this long journey from infertility to our introduction to Grace and then the long wait to meet her, you have all given us such encouragement and hope and for that we are eternally thankful and grateful.  God has blessed us greatly with wonderful friend and family!
