Were HOME !!!!!!

God is sooooo good..Our time in China went fast It was wonderful spending time with the girls and they did fantastic .Our time in Guangzhou was the best....staying at the Garden was magical and soooo beautiful. I infact miss it already ! Shopping ---my favorite thing to do was also wonderful there..I was able to find many things for friends and for our family ...lil treasures to bring back.The childrens clothes were wonderful..little shops with beautiful dresses and shoes and darling outfits for really cheap prices I went crazy ..Thank God I married a great guy who lets me indulge a bit.

AAI was a GREAT AGENCY to work with...We also loved working with Mr Li while we were there.He was great to get us in on our apt first so we didn't have to wait..both on the Doctors apts for the girls as well as the Visa apts...Well you all know by now..Im not a long without further are our two new princesses !!!!

11 days and counting DOWN !!

11 days until we leave to get our girls...I sooo cannot wait to get my hands and arms all around them. It seems so surreal. It has taken us 17 months to get to this point...Thank you for all the prayers...encouragement and support along the way...Any one who has been on the rollercoaster ride called Adoption knows what a ride it can be.
    Well my dears, we are almost there....We are still short on funds and have a short time to try to get the rest of the way...we so badly need our FSP page to read $8,193....we need just $1,113 more to get there. PLEASE Pray we will get there. We need the last of the funding to pay for our Motel and food as well as Medicals for the girls...I know our God is MIGHTY to save God's SOOOOOOOO GOT THIS !!

16 more Breakfasts at home to fix...and we are leaving on a JET plane !!!!!!

I cannot believe it...we are SOOOOOOO close...God has blessed us in so many ways. I'm an emotional mess right now. We love our little girls sooo much, we cannot wait to hug them and kiss them alllll over !! Leaving our other kids home is hard, I cannot thank my dear friends enough for stepping up,taking some of the kids and helping us right now. You have made this sooo much easier...THANK YOU just doesn't cover it !!

Well We are still short on funds,God knows that..and we Trust He HAS a plan...
   We used the $5,100 from our RR account for Tickets...Our flights were over $7,000 total, including IN country travel. We have our 6 days at Holiday Inn to pay for yet, that will be another $1100...We paid for our week in G already, that was $1100,WHOOOHOOO.We have food for two weeks ((4 people)) at a guess of about $700..and Medicals for the girls $450 and Visas for the girls<<no idea>>..Bottom line..

We still need about $1500......we have a whopping 000000 left in savings...
             Want to be a part of the BLESSING ??
 Please pray about helping us get the rest of the way...

We Pray and PRAISE you Lord. We KNOW,and We TRUST, you have a plan !

With our eyes on Him,

We really need your prayers. So many things have come in a lot higher than we predicted. We had a tight budget to begin with..and now that budget is blown to shreds! I KNOW that I KNOW that I KNOW God has called us to these girls..He has showed us in so many ways.We are so close to just 4 weeks we will be leaving...and we are short on funds ! I just booked our flights..and Motels...that hit us hard too. We know our God reigns..and He is in control !! Please will you pray for our family. Pray for God to show up in a MIGHTY WAY....this mom is growing weary!
God knows the totals..He knows our need..and I KNOW He has it covered !!

We have no where else to gather it from??? We move ahead and we TRUST in you Father......then B A M !!!!
 One I often do..I check our adoption fund....I scream..check it again..then again..then even once more..and YUP..I read it correctly..and it SAYS $5,196.00    Our God is might to save !!!
I ran with computer in hand to Rick who was reading...screaming..Honey LOOOOOOOK..what God has done !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  The kids come running to see why mom has gone crazy....we ALL life our hands and Praise God...He is in the details...Never ever doubt..if He calls you...He will carry you the way until completion...Our God is might to save...Oh how much more He loves the orphans !!

Peyton Reese

New always warms my heart deeply to see sweet smiling faces on our girls !! They are growing and changing and that's bittersweet,we are missing so much. Peyton is 34#'s and 38" tall .. at 6 years of age,she is little !
We've been looking for a stroller for her,one that is easily transported,and strong to last and hold up a few years.Peyton can only walk using a walker or holding onto hands.She can climb stairs and she is learning and getting stronger every day...We are so grateful for her health and her joy shows in her eyes..Her start in life wasn't always easy...our family plans to make up for that by showering her with lots of love and hugs and kisses! Hold tight sweet pea..we are coming !!!

No words....just listen to this song it says it all...

Lord Jesus place the burning desire on the hearts of many...Lord Jesus lead your children to make a HELP bring your special children home...let us all treasure children with special needs and see them through YOUR eyes Father!!

Goodbye Paperwork !!!!

We WONT miss you !! With a mix up on our Home Study,we once again had a set back..not to worry tho..Our God straightened it all out and we are full speed ahead.We have our USCIS approval in hand.WHOOHOO!
I was able to talk with our worker at AAI,Ky Bower <she is wonderful by the way> and we are a couple weeks from DTC <Dossier to China> We will at that time be LID <Logged in Date> what does all that mean you ask ? It means we are 5 months from travel..we will be traveling in July or early Aug...Praying for July !!
It will be HOT in China at that time..that's okay..the kids will be out of school..making it easier to find friends to watch them when we are gone...We will be gone 14 days..Im excited and Rick is as well...having done this before,we know what a precious time of bonding this will be..

On another note..please be in prayer for all of the children and foster homes in Henan Province..there is alot happening there and many of the foster homes are being closed...the children are being moved to orphanages,its a very sad situation as many of the kids are indeed special needs and need one on one attention.Some,this is the only family they have known and they have thrived there...going into a big orphanage under staffed is a death sentence for them..Also please pray for the Nanny' sad it must be for them..they have dedicated their lives to care and love on these precious angels...not they must let them go..Both of our girls are in this does effect Peyton..she was taken out of a large orphanage just 7 months ago...she was bed ridden and 7 short months this child has come back to life...

Please pray for God to intervene ..Thank you

Our very precious,beautiful,worthy of love and a family,
                               Peyton Reese.
