Adoption Update and Giveaway Winner!

We have fun and exciting news! Our Article 5 letter should be ready for pickup on Friday, November 30, and then we will just be waiting for the Travel Authorization (TA) from CCCWA. We ask that you join us in praying that we get the TA in time for us to travel around Friday, December 28 which means we would have him on January 1, 2013! We will, of course, be thrilled to travel whenever God has planned but please join us in this prayer! We would also appreciate prayers for us throughout the month of December as we prepare and plan to bring our boy home. There is much left to do prepare, and I can feel my stress level rising. Please pray that I will continue to have faith in our Father and trust Him and His timing and that we can accomplish all we need to in order to prepare Christmas and then for our trip to China! Please also be praying for Anthony's (You You) heart preparation to join our family and for wisdom for us as we meet for the first time and bond while in China.

Please also join us in lifting up our sweet Grace as she is about to go through the transition of having a sibling. She is very excited about having a brother, but little does she know that that means she will have to share us with him. :) Some of my favorite things she says right now are "We go on a plane to China to get You You Anthony!" (She uses both his names every time she takes about him) and "When I was a baby, you and daddy got me in China!"

Finally, congratulation to Rachel Gray for winning the first giveaway on my blog! Be on the look out for another giveaway tomorrow!!!

Blessings to All!


  1. Congrats! He is so cute! I will keep you and family in my prayers. Also Grace is so precious.
