This blog is a chance for us to tell our story and shine the light on the God who wrote it.

It is also a place for me to bring into the spotlight the millions of orphans around the world who are waiting for the Body of Christ to fulfill God's command to "care for orphans and widows in their distress" (James 1:27)

Soli deo Gloria... (All Glory to God Alone).

Bringing Home Li Rose



Look at this beautiful little one! This is Li Rose, but before I tell you about her...

Lots to celebrate around here! Before we left on vacation almost two weeks ago, our dossier was finished and mailed to China. We had waited awhile for immigration so this was very encouraging to make it to this step... DTC(Dossier to China).

You know what else was wonderful about it? We weren't alone in our celebrating. Some dear friends of ours also completed their dossier at the same time and were DTC as well. It has been a great joy to share this wild ride called adoption this time with friends here in Gainesville. Philip and Chrissy are a part of our small group community, and I have known Chrissy since she was a freshman in college! We even worked together in campus ministry for a season. We love this family dearly- their heart for the Lord, for serving others, and for missions.

Philip and Chrissy are in the process of adopting a little girl from China as well, whom they have named Li Rose. She is extra-close to my heart, because we got to play a small part in helping them find their daughter... Gives me soooo much joy!!

Well, the celebrating continues this weekend as we will be helping to host a party in honor of the Cobb family. We'll be gathering with their friends and family to celebrate their upcoming adoption... At the same time, our small group family (and other eager friends) have come together to make available a number of items that we will be selling at the party to help raise money for the Cobbs to complete their adoption.

If you are someone who loves adoption and would like to be a part of bringing home Li Rose, please consider heading over to the Cobb Family blog to see some of these items. You'll find Ugandan magazine bead necklaces, hand-made swaddling blankets, tutus, and more. Perhaps you have a gift you need to buy or you'd like to begin your Christmas shopping early... Either way, I hope you'll be blessed as you 'meet' this family through their blog.
