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

Eleven Things You Might Want to Know

I know...I haven't been keeping up with posting...it's been CRAZY busy....as the school year comes to a close...here's a few tibits.

  • Qing Zhuang has learned to say, "Excuse me," when he burps, and tonight he reminded Ellie to say, "Exuse me," when she burped.
  • Qing Zhuang has learned to say, "Please," when he asks for something. Tonight Whitney asked her daddy to pour her some tea. Qing Zhaung looked at her and said, "Please."
  • I had a wonderful time at the Great Oaks Church of God Tuesday night.
  • I will have a new position/title at school next year. I am quite excited to be a math/reading specialist.
  • The boys continue to LOVE the pool. Qing Zhuang is still quite cautious, but Zhuang Zhuang has become a brave little monster. Wearing arm bands and a swim ring, he will jump off of the diving board and go down the slide. He comes up screaming and wiping the water out of his face, as if he is terrified. Then he laughs and heads back to do it again.
  • Since I play the piano at Youmans Chapel, Qing Zhuang has made his own connection. Everytime I put on a dress, he pantomines piano playing...really.
  • Ellie will be in the talent show at MES next Tuesday.
  • Josie-Tatum does not want to be in a talent show.
  • Brandon is coming home from college for the summer. He is on his way as I type. Zhuang Zhuang and Qing Zhaung keep asking about Ge Ge Brandon. I may need to call and suggest he speed just this once. I am sure he usually drived the speed limit.
  • Whitney has been an awesome big sister/Nanny for the boys. Now she needs a paying job. Anybody out there willing to hire her.
And....requiring his own paragraph....is Caleb. He has left on a mission. We're actually not certain if he is out yet, but we know he has reported for duty. He cannot tell us when he leaves, or where he is going, or when he will be back. Please pray for him and his team. Pray for Casie. And, pray for Mama, too!

I'll try to post photos this weekend!!
