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!

Quick Update

Ellie, who still answers to Chun Chun, is adjusting marvelously to her new life in America. We've only been home 11 days, and she sleeps most of the night. She takes naps well if I lie down with her for a few mintues. She loves her brother, sisters, and Brandon. She plays with all of them at any opportunity. She likes to yell for Brandon at PCHS football games. She likes for Caleb to throw her in the air. She likes for Whitney for blow on her belly. She likes to do anything Josie-Tatum is doing.

She is eating well and learning new words. She says "Zhe shi ma?" (What is this?) throughout this day. Today, she kepting asking about the foods we were eating. She knows milk and decided to call everything milk. One of the pictures is of Ellie laughing at herself when she called grapes, milk.

We hope to have a walker for her in a few days, so she can be more independent. And, we go to Nemours on Nov 28th. Please keep praying!
