For these things and more...

My God sent husband

My precious daughter from China

A son to call our own.  Perfect

A daughter JUST like me. Wonderous

All the wonderful friends that have blessed our lives.

                     I give thanks

       God is forever faithful

You have such a beautiful family, Shelley!! It's been such a blessing knowing you! SuSu still talks about Kevin and asks where he is:) She was wondering the other night if he went back to China, bless her heart. I think Texas probably seems about as far as China in her mind!

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..

Favorite Poem

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
