Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

Happy Birthday Ellie Chun Chun!



Ellie's 2nd birthday is tomorrow, February 4th. (Happy Birthday to Mary Beth, too.) She celebrated her birthday today with the nannies and other children at Amazing Hands. We have been so blessed to have a contact with the foster home.


We were able to send a package to China for Ellie and her birthday. Josie-Tatum made Ellie a card and drew all of the family members on it. We sent her a tea set since Aunt Melanie helped us remember that was one of Josie-Tatum's favorite gifts on her second birthday. We also sent her some very warm clothes since we've been to Beijing in the winter, and we well remember how cold it could be! We sent a sleeper, and Josie-Tatum picked out an outfit with pants, a shirt, and a jacket. The jacket is red with Ariel, aka The Little Mermaid, on it.


The nannies said Ellie refused to take off her new red jacket! She does look so adorable in it. The nannies were so kind to send us these 7 new pictures, making sure there was one with each of her gifts. I cried when I saw Ellie looking at the card drawn by Josie-Tatum.


Thanks be unto God for His many gifts!
