Once Upon A Prayer

Someone Please Pinch Me...

I keep waiting to wake up from this beautiful dream I am having!  Am I really in China?  Do I really have two new beautiful daughters?  Do the girls really love each other and get along like long lost best friends?  Really?  I swear I must be dreaming because everything is way too good to be true.  What a brilliant reminder to me that when God wants to show off, he has the absolute power to make things glorious!

We started out our morning by accessorizing with stickers

The girls held hands on our way to have the TB tests checked

Lily belly laughed with her mouth full of food

Mackenzie clung to Momma for comfort at the clinic

Got out of the van for a family photo op

Enjoyed a snack

The girls went for a swim with Papa...yes, he is extremely BRAVE!

Papa having the time of his life!!!!

The girls checking out the huge coy fish
 with Kelka

Mackenzie thriving with abundant love

Lily Grace with Ayiya (Auntie)

Arms full of love...

Hold me sissy...we are up really high!

I anticipate the day that my sweet Lily Grace can run
and play without turning blue and 
struggle to breathe.

Please Heavenly Father, perform a miracle
on my precious daughter!

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; 
ensure justice for those being crushed. 
Yes, speak for the poor and helpless, 
and see that they get justice. 

Proverbs 31:8-9


  1. Praying for your girls. Looks like a lovely time together, and happy little girls. Glad it is going well. Homeward bound soon!! (Lynette from DTC FB winter group)

  2. i am loving your updates! the girls look great....what an answer to prayer!

  3. I love this!!!! Just love it!!! God is so good. I am in awe, and SO happy for your precious family. :)

  4. All the pictures of Mackenzie, before your arrival, had such a heart breaking sadness about them. Look at the joy in her face. She radiates....and so do you Emily. God has left his mark so deeply on every step of this journey, which leaves me to believe Lily is already healed if not physically, just the way God needs her to be at this time for you and for your family. What a great homecoming you will have when the biggers meet the littles. It will be like the 4th of July and Christmas all rolled into one.
