Blown Away!

I cannot believe how cool our dear Lord is! Something happened this week that I would love to share with you but I can not- it is much too early. I know I am leaving you hanging and I'm sorry for that but it is just not time to share. (I'm doing a Linny!) It was most definitely a God thing! Something only he could orchestrate.  It is also something that we will be deeply praying about! It left me dazed and in awe... My head is still spinning.

I am doing a bible study that I absolutely love- it is a Beth Moore online bible study. I struggle each day wanting to do my lesson but I don't always have the time. Some days I am successful and other days I am not- however when I am able to do it it is so worth it! It helps me to see the Lord in the world around me- the beauty and the power of his Holy Spirit.  It is a blessing to be able to study his word in freely- I can't imagine not having the freedoms that we have here. 

In a matter of hours our dossier will be at our agency!! We are so thrilled and doing the happy dance! To think that our lord is so kind to allow us to parent these precious girls, also blows me away! Emma and Ellie, we are working hard to bring you two home! I was all fired up thinking that we would be in southern China when it was cold here BUT that is not going to happen. Most likely we will be in southern China when it is beautiful here... oh well! When you live in MN- you spend time thinking of ways to get out of here in the winter. In the summer- you don't want to leave- there is no place prettier!

I have received 2 responses from people that say they have pics of our girls! If that is you please e-mail me at   We would love pics of our daughters and we would love to connect up with you since your child is from the same place as our girls!!

Yes, you are pulling a Linny, however, I know that it will be worth the wait :) (wish there was a way to make those silly smiley faces point UP...I feel like I fell over...LOL)

Oh, my excited to see What God has in store for you and very excited for you to share it as soon as you know it is the right time.

I'm praying you get the pictures of your girls, what a blessing. I reached out to people who were adopting from Jie's orphanage and nothing happened. They didn't allow pictures even inside the orphanage. That is such a blessing there are pictures for you. God Bless!
