Bags are Packed!!!

12 07 2011

We have finally finished packing!

It’s been a hard day of goodbyes for us all-never fun to leave your pet.

Probably will not be easier in the morning……saying goodbye to our Bolt, Princess and my mom. I WILL cry a river! I could cry just typing the words. However, I know that we are all called to do things in life that are not easy. We often feel ill equipt or unworthy of the call! But God still calls! We are willing to answer…YES! We know with confidence that He will do it in spite of us. Our God is faithful from beginning to end. We trust Him completely! Do NOT get me wrong, we are thrilled to answer the call of adoption! The journey to complete the process is not always simple.

We covet your prayers over the next 15 days. Please feel free to leave a comment on the blog or email we want to make sure, one day, Hannah Li can read all the words from the wonderful family and friends who were waiting for her to come home.

Blessings and much love to all!!

It is so exciting and such a blessing to see my beautiful daugher and her wonderful husband respond to God’s call on their lives – parenting is full of ups and downs, but there is NOTHING in this world that can ever be sweeter than the joys of parenting – and the unconditional love of a child. Although I will miss you for the next 15 days, I cherish the time with Princess and Bolt! We are making memories – and praying for Mommie, Daddy, Colt and Grace. Our faith is stretched by exchanging our weakness for God’s strength. As you step boldly out in faith and obedience to God, you will find his grace for all that you need. We love you to the MOON and back:) We can hardly wait to skype as soon as Melody is in your arms.
Hugs & Kisses, Nana, Bolt and Princess
