I made up a Chinese song!

Hmmm, I was playing around with some of the chinese phrases I know (I've learned about 50) and I made up two songs (to the tune of "Go to Sleep, go to sleep...") One is a "lullaby" and one is a "I love you" song. Pretty cool!

We are still waiting for our Travel Approval, after that we are pretty much good to go and wait to get put with a travel group! Please pray for a quick Travel Approval.

A letter! A Letter!!!

We got a letter from Megan!! The woman who sent Megan's birthday cake to her forwarded a letter from Megan. She wrote it on her birthday and it was so sweet! She wished Mark a happy birthday and wished that she had a gift for him. She also wished Abby happy birthday and sent a lovely message to her. She told me that she hopes to be with me on my next birthday (Sept 21). She hopes to tell me "I love you" on my birthday. She thanked us for the cake and books we sent to her.

Her letter was sweet and kind and caring. Our whole family is thankful for this brief contact with Megan. Here is a photo of the letter.

The mysterious Article 5!!

Our Article 5 has been issued from China....but I don't really know what that means. The Article 5 is one more step in the process and this means that our Travel Approval could be issued within a few weeks! After that, we could be traveling within a month!!! Yes, I know everyone is now checking their callendars for possible could be sometime in August or we could still be looking at Sept.

Exciting news!!!

We continue to pray that God will provide the finances to travel to China. We do not know where it will come from but we are trying to trust. Our "humanness" wants to worry...

Have a great weekend everyone!!

My "baby" is four!

Today is Brian's birthday and he is now FOUR!! Here are some things about Brian..... Our little man is a sweet loving little guy. He is funny and silly. He gets SO excited when Daddy gets home! Brian loves sterotypical "boy things": cars, tools, sports, and annoying his sisters! :smile:

Brian is so excited to add a brother and another sister to our family...he loves to look at their photos and tell people who they are.

Lord, thank you for giving Brian to us, he is such a wonderful son and brother.
