Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

As I write this, Joshua's CARS toy is saying "Speed...I AM SPEED." Perfect for your process! ha!
What a delightful blessing. Yes, a crazy departure, but you're a pro and clearly God was paving the way for this with how his room is ready and you've got a full freezer. Thanks for sharing your joy~ we'll be praying for your trip and new addition!! love, the Hume Family

Just commented on your FB page-and I will say it again-OH...MY...GOODNESS...I am sure you are running around like a chicken with its head cutoff trying to get your packing done so quickly-I am so amazed how God has provided for you guys in this situation, and in saying provided, I mean, he has heard your prayers about needing to travel so soon to be there before your deadline! You soooo need to be able to blog there! Can't wait to see the pics of you meeting him! Love you all!

Have you read Marybeth Chapman's Choosing to See?
I can go to Target and fill a suitcase with everything you need and meet you in the parking lot on your way to airport. I'll do it too!

So exciting!

Jennifer

We are very happy for you and your family. Have a wonderful time in China and blessings for that little boy.
You saw our daughter before me and sent us pictures and videos of her before we traveled to pick her up and we will be forever grateful for that.
We wish you the best and good luck with The Bloom Project.
