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).

Mei Takes On Cincinnati

I'm sitting here by Mei's bedside. She's up on her big hospital bed playing with a toy... propped on her daddy's lap while he enjoys watching a soccer game. Her PICC line and NG tube are in and she's doing so well with them. She was admitted this morning and is scheduled for surgery tomorrow. We've been in Cincinnati a week now. Last week was filled with lots of tests and procedures followed by a weekend full of fun. Some days were hard. Especially Friday when we reviewed the tests with the various doctors and found Mei's medical condition to be more complex than we thought. We hate that our baby girl has to go through so much, and yet, we know that God has a good plan and purpose for *everything* He allows in her life. We continue to have a tremendous peace through all of this, and I truly believe Mei does, too. I hope that one day soon I can sit and share a little here on the blog about what God is showing us and how He has blessed us in the last few days. But that would take a good bit more brain power than I currently possess, so I thought I'd share a few pictures, instead!
MeiMei is ready for take-off!

Nurse Mei checks out her patient while she waits for her MRI.

Mei loved being outside on Saturday! We enjoyed walking over the Ohio River on the "Purple People Bridge". We started in Kentucky and walked to Ohio!
   
 All loaded up on the surrey ready for a ride along the river! Mei was so happy to get to wear a helmet.

Highlight of the weekend- seeing my friend Preethi, her husband Chriswin and beautiful son Jai. They drove from Columbus for a day visit... Preethi's smile and laughter can light up any day!
Mei loved "Baby Jai" and was so proud of herself as she "helped" feed him! 
       
MeiMei played hard at the Cincinnati Museum Center's Children's Museum! 

Can you tell she loved the water tables best of all?


MeiMei loves to make dinner for Daddy!
