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!

Sweet Surprise from China

I've had these precious photos for a couple of weeks, but haven't shared yet.

Drew celebrated his 4th birthday on Nov 13th...and his AWESOME nanny sent me pictures of the celebration.

Have you noticed how many photos include him eating? I think that boy likes to eat!;)

Please pray for our Drew. His nanny also shared that his closest friend was adopted this summer and the other two boys close to his age are leaving with their forever families soon. While he knows his forever family is coming, he will be "left behind" for a few months without his friends. Pray that God will protect his heart.

Our Zeke is in a huge orphanage. While his current situation lacks the loving and caring environment where Drew is, he is likely not even aware that a family is coming. His orphanage has just opened to adoption in the last year. He will need much prayer as he learns to adjust to a family, but his heart is less vulnerable right now.

Thank you for rejoicing with us. Thank you for all of the emails and encouragement we received in the last 2 days!!!!!

Robbie, I was so excited to hear about your full funding!!!!! God is SO good to us!!!! I had felt bad because I was not able to send any contributions lately and just rejoiced that the Lord provided the whole amount needed to get Drew and Zeke home!!!!!! Can't wait to see them in your arms.

Love the birthday pictures! Cameron really enjoys looking at photos of his friends - he misses them a lot! I almost feel bad for taking Cameron from his friends, but I know that is part of the process and part of the plan God had for him and for the other children. We will have to figure out a way to reunite these guys! Happy Birthday to Drew and praying the wait for your union with him and Zeke is not too far down the road.
