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!

The Most Precious Video I've Seen In a While

I've had these videos for a few weeks, but I've been waiting to share. While I wait patiently...anxiously...no patiently...from China to see if we will receive PA for Zeke, I decided these precious videos could encourage my heart.

In this video, you can see him RUN! I wonder if he can run with his tongue inside his mouth. ;) We better be getting ready for a busy house. Wait, we have a busy Ellie.....just how busy do we think we'll be?

Anyone know Chinese? Want to share what the Ayi is telling him?

And, listen carefully at the end of this video., for just a couple of seconds you can hear some sweet music...HIS voice! (Pause the ssound in the playlist at the bottom of the page.)

Thank you for all joining us on this WILD ADVENTURE!

When my international student returns from California I can have her translate what the Ayi is saying. She will be back on Friday. How exciting to have video of Andrew! We have a short video of our Cameron as well. So thankful to know they are in great hands until us mama's come to scoop them up!!

Patiently waiting to hear of your PA for Zeke!

I'll see if my Chinese student friends can translate if they come over in a day or so...How exciting!

I did recognize in the second video that she said Mama...like she was telling him to speak to Mom.

And in the first, I recognized "quai la: I think it means run. We shall see.

My seven-year old who has been learning Chinese since she was four thought that the Ayi said, "Are you tired or not tired?" and he answered, "Not tired."

Betsy said...

In the first one I think she said he was walking too fast for mama. In the second one she was definitely asking him if he was tired and he said no.
Too precious!

It looks like you got the general translation, but here is what my friend said: in the first one, the Ayi says to walk slower, don't go so fast, in the second one, she asks if he is tired and he says he is not.

He's very cute!
