Another stumbling block

A family traveling in China sent a new picture....isn't he perfect??

If you have been following in the adoption world you know that the fees have been increased. Since this increase is so close to us getting our letter of acceptance, it has kind of taken us off guard.

After much pacing the floor and going to the computer about 5 times and turning around, I have added a chip in button. If our family and friends needed some assistance I would be saddened if they wouldn't ask us for help. So we are giving them an opportunity to help us bring Kevin home.

We are extremely grateful to all of YOU who have prayed with us, cried with us and rejoiced with us over our precious boy. Thank you so much for continuing to do that with us and for us. Our souls are weary from waiting, but truly believe that everything will happen in God's perfect timing.

Oh, Shelley, isn't he just precious?! What a sweetheart!! I understand your agony with the waiting for your LOSC and the increasing fees. Yikes!! We've all been taken a bit off guard:) I know it will all be worth it in a few short weeks when we hold our angels in our arms!! Maybe we'll end up traveling together. We're at week number 16 waiting for our LOSC for our Maia in Wuxi:)

Your Kevin is gorgeous! Thanks for following my blog. I plan to put up pics of my Tyson soon. Praying for you!

shelly, i can't find your email address again. I was wondering how you were doing. so have you heard anything from the agency regarding why the wait has increased so much? i thought maybe after the new year it would pick up again, but then we have CNY to deal with. it seems like our agency is waiting longer than others...but maybe that's just me!

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
