4 yrs home....

The day we met....Sept. 18.2006

Now....Sept. 18,2010

Who knew???  She loves kindergarten.  She weathered the first week with courage and trust in her parents to keep their word and return for her....ALWAYS.  The Chinese govt has given us a part of our family, without her we would not be whole.  She was made by God to fit in the empty space we had.  She continues to trust us and let us prove ourselves to her.  She continues to love us and "nevereverever" will want to move out and grow up.  She is funny and sensitive, she is brave and strong.  She is our beautiful princess.  We are anxiously awaiting what has planned for out little dynamo for the next 4 yrs.  Claire, we love you forever and ever.

4 years! Wow. She is so darling. We will be at 4 years in March. So glad to hear she loves kindergarten.

Love the two photos from the football game. Isn't that how it always works, 2 out of 45, when you really want and need them. What does she do in the band?

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
