Proudly Announcing....


Are you surprised? So were we! Little Maggie was divinely dropped into our life on June 20th and over the last two weeks God has confirmed her place in our family.

We received our pre-approval
from China
on July 5th to adopt Maggie

So, it is with great JOY and EXCITEMENT we share a little about our precious little girl. She is currently 7 years old, just 8 months younger than Haddie. Maggie lives in the Dongguan City in Guangdong Province, Peoples Republic of China. She has the wonderful blessing of living with a foster family. Maggie is quiet, and shy and has two darling dimples!! She attends school and her favorite subject is English. Maggie has CP, which effects the mobility in her legs. She actually walks quite well, but will have the opportunity to further improve with medical intervention here in the States.

Some comments heard in our home over the last couple of weeks from family and friends...
"You're not getting another kid, are you?"
"Yes! Praise the Lord"
"Our house is going to be even more awesome!"
"How can we not? Why wouldn't we?"
"Are you serious?"
"She is going to sit by me in the van."
"I no like quiet." (In reference to Maggie being shy and quiet...wonder who said that?) :)
"I have friend all time, like Joel and and Jack."

We are all so excited to have the honor to add another member in our family!

" Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given."
John 1:16
