Pure Joy

8 months.

Although we know it takes 9 months to create a baby,

We had no idea it would take about the same time to heal a heart, and free a soul

Can you feel his peace, 
his happiness, 
this boy of ours who feared the outside, 
and screamed at the plants,
ok he jsut screamed,
and cried,
and hit.

Yep, this pretty much summed up our time in China
 (doesn't he look like such a baby here and I don't mean cry baby LOL!).

Now he is a brother,

A son,

A friend,

He is nourished,

He is loved!

And we can't forget our gorgeous princess!

  5. These are GORGEOUS!! What a handsome little fella!

  6. How good is our God! Thankful for HIS healing power! What a sweet, sweet boy! All because a family stepped out in faith to love one of God's children and make him (and her) one of their own! :)

  7. What beautiful pictures of your children. I have loved reading about your journey. Love how real you are about the ups and downs of adoption. The joys are even sweeter because of the hard times...I know! God bless -

  12. That's really beautiful. Perfectly sums up adoption.

  13. Dont forget to add to Cav's list how incredibly handsome (dare I say: gorgeous) that boy of yours is!!

    I love the picture of them all all, and he is pitching a fit and Fei Fei just looks so composed and amused and like such a big girl in that photograph. what a beautiful smile she has. I am still praying for her sweet little heart. and adding her impending surgery to my list as well.
