They had lots of little ones there to help celebrate, including the most recent sweet girl home, Jayden - welcome home Jayden!! Jayden is from Guangxi, the same province that Emma is from in China.

7 months ago today

Just 7 short months ago today, our adoption of Dang Yi Nong, now, Allie Faith YiNong Bishop was final in the eyes of China. We can't believe how fast the months are flying by! The girls are so much fun! It just warms your heart to watch them play together, to love on each other, talk to each other - like they are little adults! You can't help but laugh sometimes, at the funny, and amazing things they say.

Allie is just blossoming! She is funny, sweet, full of energy, and has the sweetest smile! We had our second visit at the cleft clinic this week, and it looks like early May, we will have her lip revision surgery. Please pray that it goes well, and, she recovers quickly.

Enjoy a few pics - these are from the Valentine's banquet, and a few from just before church this morning, and maybe a few others from our week...

18 months ago today

Eighteen months ago today, a sweet baby girl was placed in our arms at the Civil Affairs offie in Nanning, China. Her name was Guo SiQi, now, Emma Grace SiQi Bishop. She is one of God's greatest gifts to our family. She was a baby of just 18months, now 3 years old - where has the time gone??? She is smart, funny, and a true blessing! We love this sweetie so much! She has added so much life and fun to our family, and we can't wait to see what God has in store for this sweet angel.

Welcome Home Lainey FuPing!!

On Saturday, we had a shower for our dear friends Deb & Russ to celebrate the adoption of their third little girl from China, Lainey FuPing. They actually returned home on December 11, but this was the first chance we had to have a little party for them since them, with the holidays and everything else going on.

We love this family, and adore their little girls! They are so sweet! Everyone seemed to have a great time, and Lainey received lots of wonderful gifts. Enjoy the pics from the celebration...

Emma's Chuck E Cheese party

Since Emma's birthday was January 24th, which was the day we celebrated Chinese New Years, we didn't have a big birthday party. That day, we had family over and had cake and ice cream and presents for Emma's birthday, but she wanted to go to Chuck E. Cheese like we did for Allie's birthday. So, on Thursday night, we went to Chuck E. Cheese with friends, Russ, Lily, Lucy, and we missed their mom, Deb and sister, Lainey! All the girls seemed to have a great time, and so did we! Enjoy a few pics from our fun night...
