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).



The Chinese characters above stand for "Family". We are one step closer to Mei becoming a part of our family! A few days ago we received our LOA (or Letter of Approval)- our official acceptance from the Chinese government saying that we can adopt this precious child. It brings such joy to know we are one step closer to our sweet baby girl. At this point, we expect to travel in December.

"God sets the lonely in families..."
Psalm 68:6
