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!

South Georgia Multicultural Festival

So, it really wasn't a south Georgia muliticultural festival, but it was quite an interesting reunion. Our God is full of surprises. Who would have ever dreamed, 12 years ago, when Sabrina and Amy were in my Sunday School class as teenagers, that I would have 2 daughters from China, Amy would have one son from Vietnam, and Sabrina would be waiting on her son from the Phillipines? Not to mention, Amy's husband's mother is from Japan, and Sabrina's husband's grandfather is Filipino/Hawaiian. It's a small world afterall.

The LORD has done great things for us, and we are glad!!! (Psalm 126:3)

Did we have a full house today? Not only were all seven members of our family here off and on throughout the day. Sabrina was here with her Kati and Eli. They are waiting on Levi. Amy was here with Blake, Grace, and Samuel. Samuel joined his forever family in February. Caleb's girl friend came over, as did my sister and her husband. Then the girlfriend's parents stopped in to say, "Hello," when they picked Sara up. It was a wonderful day.

Here are some pictures of the kids at the pool, 1 seven-year old, 3 five-year-olds, 1 four-year-old, and 2 three-year-olds. Got that?

And, to end our day of multicultural activities, when all of the guests were gone, we went swimming in the red neck swimming pool. Well, actually, it was playing in a mud hole. And, in case you wondered, this pool, uh hole, is in our driveway. We should fill it in sometime, but then where would the kids play?

Those are wonderful pictures. I especially love the mud hole and Ellie with her walker in the water. What a wonderful day for all your kiddos. Extra hugs.
