And Then Came Hope

Yes, it is true.

We are going back to China "this soon".

While we were still awaiting our final approval to travel for Joy, a 4-year-old little girl was being interwined into our hearts. We weren't expecting it. We tried to say no. The idea seemed outrageous! Two trips to China in less than a year?! Yet we could not let go of this little one. We had no peace until the day we said, "Yes! She is ours!"

God can be relentless that way. We are grateful He did not give up on us and that we finally caught up with Him. Our waiting daughter, Hope, will arrive home late this fall or early winter; and we are T H R I L L E D to be adding a new daughter to our family!
