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!

If you have questions about adoption, our work in South Africa, or spina bifida, please email me at rbmattox@bellsouth.net

The Secret Revealed


Tonight was one of the blessed evenings you really don't want to end. All of my extended family was here. All of my children, my DIL, my parents, my sister and her family. We shared one of Caleb's favorite meals, and, of course, I enjoyed making it. (I've heard he has told Casie he could probably get me to cook anything he wanted.)

For all of you Navy moms, I hugged Caleb realy tight for each of you! (Yeah, I had been in the kitchen for quite a few hours, so my face in kind of shiny, but I didn't want to miss the photo op.)



We played Just Dance on the Wii and had oh so much fun.






And, we made the announcement to the family.......

So....if you'll count the shirts the girls are holding up in this photo.....


There are 2!! Today I bought the first gifts for the 2 boys we plan to add to our family.

We have decided to submit our LOI for Little Boy Mattox #2 this week! He is 10 months older than Zhuang Zhuang; he'll be five years old in January. I will be able to tell you more about him when we receive PA for him.

And, since I'm not supposed to post photos until we receive PA....I'll give you a hint.
Follow this link:

His name starts with an N.

Stan has chosen the name Ezekial Gunter.....we'll call him Zeke...and Gunter after our awesome pastor.

So, pray and pray some more. I'll share more later about how the LORD revealed to us that He had 2 sons waiting for us in China. It is soooooo a God thing.

Congrats!
And I can't help but recognize a few people doing "Cotton Eyed Joe", LOL! You need to make sure your family puts the wrist strap on their wiimotes or someone could get hurt. I'm not kidding. Merry Christmas, and I will be praying for your boys!
