A little boy that changed our life...

We've shared with y'all before how before we even left China
with Hagan and Griggs,
the Lord was already softening our hearts 
to the fact that our daughter was still in China.

We knew that we needed to find her,
and get working to bring her home as soon as possible!

So, of course, I was online looking at beautiful faces of 
soooo many waiting girls.

And we finally, 
through much prayer,
found our Maklayne Faith!

Knowing that we were ONLY going to adopt one child,
because that is what WE told God,
we were all excited to focus on bringing ONLY her home.

And praying for the other kids who's precious faces we 
had seen while searching for Maklayne!

Like this little guy, who caught my heart many months ago!

Little did we know  -
God again had different plans for us!! 

After many, many months went by,
and God working in us like only HE can work.

I was looking at another waiting child list and guess who I saw,
this same little guy! 
Just waiting for his momma!

I was able to get his file,
and read through it! 
Yep, it's him!!
Through many more months of prayer and 
praying with our agency.

Doubting, hoping, doubting, listening  -
 God gave us peace and confirmation over and over again,
that this was our son!

We're incredibly excited to introduce to y'all our son,
Miles John
