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!

Our "More Than I Imagine" God

If you've visited here often, you know I love Ephesians 3:20. I stand amazed at the many times God has exceeded my expectations. This is one of those days! After worrying about our Zeke for months, we received photos of him last month. You can see them here if you misssed them. But, I have now made a contact with someone who had been to Chanzghi SWI where he lives. She is now working with the orphanage to help children who need extra medical care. She assures me that he is reported to be doing well. That news from last week made my heart smile! Some ladies from her organization visited the SWI on Wednesday. They visited with him! They took these photos: I received a photo of the SWI: and learned, that the orphans will be moving into a new building at the end of the month: The person I've come to know in China asked me if I had questions she would like to ask, and she has more information for me. PRAISE THE LORD! She had much to do, so the information is coming later this weekend, but she wanted to get the pictures to me. YIPEE, JESUS! So, you know my heart is smiling, but do you want to hear it sing? She also sent me a video!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy! Smile! Sing with Me! And, if any of you know Chinese, please let me know what he's saying...umm...shouting! :)

It sounds to me like he is reciting something. It is so rewarding to see/hear our kids on video!

Our teen daughter says he is reciting a poem. She doesn't know what it is in English but it's a popular Chinese poem the children are taught to recite. He's adorable.
