We Have Friends in China

Hi everyone! Just thought you may be interested to follow a trip to China with our agency. There are 3 couples from New Phila that just left this week to pick up their new daughters. We've been glued to the computer watching their progress and looking at pictures, so we thought you may want to see also. There are new links on the right to their blogs.

I-171H is Here!

We are so excited! Only 2 weeks after our fingerprinting, we have our I-171H renewal. This form is from US Immigration and allows us to bring a child into the country. Our original application expires in April, so we are very relieved to have our renewal taken care of. Praise the Lord!

There were at least 6 new babies adopted just in 2006.

This year everyone decorated piggy banks for the
"Year of the Pig" and will save penny to be donated
to a local group that sends aid to Chinese orphans.

An Invisible Red Thread

"When a child is born, invisible red threads extend from the child's spirit and connect to all the significant people who will be part of the child's life. As the child grows, the threads shorten, drawing closer those who are destined to be together. " - An Ancient Chinese Belief

We know that it is God who forms us and knows us in our mother's womb (Ps. 139) and it is He who will bring our life together with our new little girl in His timing.
