HaPpY bIrThDaY LuKe!

Today you are 3 years old (November 18th)! It was my hope that we would be holding you on your third birthday. It didn't quite happen BUT we will be holding you when you turn 3 yrs and 3 weeks!
Thank you Jesus!!

Two years ago you stole our hearts! For two years we have watched from afar the miracles that God has performed in your life. I have been in awe of our MAKER through you! 
For two years I have dreamed about you!
You are a precious gift from God! 

You have grown so much over these last 2 years! This is the picture I saw when I heard God speak "he is you son"!
You look as surprised as I was!

You are walking and talking now!

You go to preschool and your as smart as can me!

You also have great lookin' legs! 
You have a tender heart AND a great sense of humor!
You speak Mandarin and you know some English!

We are so blessed to have so many pictures of you!!

Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!

Happy Birthday you sweet Boy!!!!! Do you know how cold it was when Lu and I took you outside for your firework photo??? Well you don't know how cold because we bundled you up nice and toasty during those blue lip days even when you were warm, pre-heart surgery days!!!

In fact, that is my red suitcase in the background and I would have done anything I could have to put you in it and bring you home to your mama who already had a sneakin' suspicion that you were hers!!!

Can't wait for you to come home where you belong!! Where I selfishly get to watch your birthdays for a very long time!!!! What a might God we serve!!!

Happy Birthday to Luke!! I remember of following his story. He is surely a miracle. Glad he will finally have a loving family. Are you planning on taking any donations to the foster home? Blessings

Hi Jean
Thanks for your comment and for asking about our adoption process, Unfortunately things have been at a stand still for financial reasons and it's been heart breaking for me.

Please pray for our situation, it would mean a lot to me.
Blessings to you

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LUKE!!!!! This is the first time that I have been able to follow an adoption story of a child I feel like I know. : ) Cassandra told us all about Luke, we saw pictures along the way, prayed for him during his big surgery...I don't know if you knew this, but it was nearly almost Cassandra who took him to Israel (but the Ch*nese gov. wanted it to be a Ch*nese person.) So, Luke is so very special to us. We are so happy that we know he is getting an awesome family!!!!!! God bless all of you, and God bless that precious little man!
