Adoption Benefit

Over the weekend our church sponsored a benefit for our adoption. Of course I forgot my camera, : ( but i will give you the details. It was a Christian concert. Our daughter Lauren sang one of our favorite songs. Our music director and his daughter sang, as did our preacher, and my cousin Matthew. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends. The money raised will go a long way to help support the adoption. It was more than I could have ever imagined! We thank all of you who helped and contributed. Your love for us and for God is unbelievable!

We also showed a video during the adoption benefit that we made (with the help of my cousin, Thank you Matthew!) . We wanted everyone to understand how many more children need help. The video was truly touching and I think everyone was moved.

For this week I will concentrate on trying to clean and organize the house. I am getting a little concerned about the swine flu epidemic. Hopefully it will not affect us.

Only 10 more days!

Happy Birthday Lilly Yin!

Happy Birthday Lilly Yin!

Today is Lillys 5th birthday. We sent her an outfit and a few toys. I am not sure if they will give them to her or not, but I am sure they will at least show them to her. Its not really fair if only one child gets things, so I understand that. I PROMISE next year we will have a big party! We are so ready to go get her! I promise sweetheart Momma and Babba are coming! We received this new picture yesterday from another adoptive parent. She looks scared again. Please pray that God comforts her during this time of transition. We feel so blessed to be given to opportunity to adopt. It has never been more apparent to us that we are doing what pleases God. PLEASE continue to pray for us as all!

17 more days!

Packing and Lillys room

Hi All! This week I thought i would post a few pictures of Lillys room. We have been so busy, and little by little it is all getting done. There is still a lot to do. The picture of the suticase is all the packing I have done! Last night we worked on the video for the adoption benefit at our church. We are not good at speaking, but what we said came from our heart. Thank you all for your prayers and support! ((HUGS))
