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).


Happy Birthday, Mei Mei!

Mei turned three!

It is hard to believe that our tiny little peanut is actually three (she wears size 18 months clothes!), but it's true. We celebrated with family at our home on her dedication day and also with a little ice cream (her favorite) during playgroup that week.

I thought this might be a good time for some updates on our little girl...

She is one spunky little lady! This girl has come out of her shell and she is hilariious. She loves attention now and likes to be in charge of things. She just struts her little 21 pound self around the house bringing laughter wherever she goes. She's independent, usually very compliant, adaptable, and s-m-a-r-t. This child, who knew two words in Chinese a few months ago now speaks in full sentences in English. I kid you not- nearly every day one of us will come to another and say "Did you just hear what Mei said?" Really, y'all- we are astounded at her progress, as is pretty much everyone who meets her.

"Mei Mei", as we all usually call her, is full of kisses and hugs, too. She is sweet and loving and is adored by her sister and brothers. She is pretty much over her fear of stuffed animals (or anything fuzzy) and water, as you can see! Her favorite foods are french fries, eggs, yogurt and ice cream.

And, as you can see, Mei Mei now has glasses! I called and told Scott, "Guess what? Just when you thought she couldn't get any cuter... Wait till you see this!" Of course, he was confused about why I was excited that our daughter has astigmatism, but c'mon those little "baby" glasses are stinkin' adorable, aren't they?!
