We had no idea, 5 years ago, of the journey we had started on, but adoption has taken us down one of the most beautiful roads there is to travel!

That said.....we ran to town today and this is what my middle son ended up wearing. This was AFTER I sent him back inside to actually get shoes on. I do have a mudroom and a shoe rack. They are told, over and over "if you put your shoes away when you come home, you would be able to find them when it is time to go somewhere". Obviously #1-they do not listen and #2 this get up is perfectly fine to a 7 year old boy.
And, I have to note, better than what he wore (thankfully just around the house) yesterday!

Three years age today we received our referral for our little boy from China. It is hard to believe three years have gone by since we first laid eyes on this picture. We were expecting referrals to come in to our agency in mid to late April and were so surprised to hear from our family coordinater in early April. She shared all of the info she had (name, age, where from) and told us we could pray about whether to request the rest of the info. We had been praying for our son for months - we didn't need any other info to know he was the one God had chosen for our family. What a precious gift! There is no way to explain the feelings as you wait to see a picture of your son, having no idea at all what he will look like, be like, etc. It is thrilling to say the least. This is Shi Wen Bo at 18 months old living in the NW part of China. At the time, we could not imagine surviving the wait to go pick him up. We traveled to Urumqui in Xinjiang Province, China in August, 2006.
We love you so much sweet J. and can't imagine life without you in it!

This is a thought provoking look at the way others around the world live.
