Our Journey to You!

2012 was an amazing year for our family. 
It was a year filled with JOY and the Lord's abundant grace. We are so undeserving of His unmerited favor, but we are beyond thankful for His many blessings!
And, of course, one of those AMAZING blessings was to travel to China this summer to adopt our precious baby girl. 
Here is the video story of our journey across the world to bring our Addy-Kate home.

Oh Jenny....HOW do you watch this without crying your eyes out? I cried when the plane touched down in China, and when she let you hold her the first time, and then again when she said MAMA. What a gift she is! One day she will be so incredibly thankful for the gift of this video. What an incredibly blessed little girl to be given the gift of your family!

You have a such a beautiful, beautiful, family! God very unexpectedly blessed us with a 2nd pregnancy while we were waiting to adopt our 2nd child. And even though I'm due to give birth in just 3 weeks this video makes me SO excited to adopt at some point in the future! Blessings to your family!

P.S, my 6 year old Asher watched the video with me. He kept saying, "Look at how much she smiles Mom! She is happy!" Followed by, "She sure likes bows, huh?" (Such a boy...!)
