On Mother's Day..

I walked downstairs yesterday to see my man surrounded by our babes on the couch.  I wish I had a photo of that moment, but it is one that will have to be remembered in my heart because the moment passed way too quickly to grab the camera.  He had them in his arms one on each side and I came up and wrote this..

Today my heart is full because dear friends seeing this Godly man, my love, my best friend surrounded on the couch by two Chinese babies that are ours is just more than my heart can stand!  Nearly six years ago, God planted a seed in my heart.  He gave me the dream of a Chinese daughter.  I never thought it would come true and I never truly thought that I wanted it as badly as I did.  Seeing these precious girls here and being able to call them daughter is a reminder of how faithful God is.  It is a reminder of how good and perfect His plans always are and how perfect His timing is in my life.  Six years ago my heart began to fall in love with the Chinese face and heart is full of love for these two special faces that have clearly been brought to us by God.  The goodness of it all is simply too much for me to take in most days.  How blessed, how amazing, and how loved I am by a God who created me, gave me the desire to call these Chinese babes mine, and led me to them to fulfill His promise through me to care for the orphan.  On this Mother's Day I couldn't ask for more, but because God is the God of abundant life and blessings I might just squeak out a small prayer to Him asking if He might see fit to send me to China again because how could I not want more.

Happy Mother's Day!


  1. Happy Mother's Day to you! I uttered the same prayer this morning...of course...I had to add that he would provide a bigger vehicle, too...:)

  2. Awww, what an amazing prayer! I think if someone asks God if they should care for an orphan, seems like the answer is pretty much always a YES! Thank you for your huge heart to serve! Happy Mothers Day!!
