I can't believe Matthew turned 6 last week. Wow! It seems like yesterday he was a baby.

What a wonderful blessing God has given us. Matthew you are such a precious child of God. You are all boy, full steam ahead, and you keep me on my toes for sure. You have been a blessing beyond words to our family. I love how God made you perfectly, your cheesy smile, your love for others, all your special hugs and most of all your loving heart.

We celebrated with of course a jumper party at our home. Here's a picture of Matthew and a few of his buddies. We all had a great time. I love you Matthew will all my heart. I pray for you daily that soon you will understand where all that love comes from .. Our sweet savior JESUS.

I can't wait to see how you grow over this next year.

We are adopting a little girl from China. :)

I know many of you are saying What?? Why?? How???

Mike and I have been on this journey for over a year now. God has been calling us, woeing us to something BIG!! About 6 months ago, He revealed it to me by breaking my heart for orphans. And then breaking my heart for a precious little girl in China. I prayed for what seemed like months before I approached Mike with what God had laid on my heart. Mike was on board immediately. I thank the Lord for this daily.

My heart is filled with an overwhelming Love for a daughter that I haven't seen yet but God choose for us long before the earth was set into place.

Why China?

Because that's where our daughter is. It just feels right. God has given us peace and affirmation that she is in China. We are on a faith journey with Christ. We know he will lead us to this precious little girl.

We are in the very beginings of the adoption process, it will take 12-18 months for this to become final. We are asking for support and prayers from our family and friends as we work through this process and for our little girl that could already be in an orphanage in China.

Philippians 4:6 -Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God.

Matthew 21:22 - And all things you ask in prayer and believing you will recieve.

Again, I can't tell you how excited we are to share this with all our family and friends.
