Happy Gotcha Day, LiYang!!

It is so hard to believe that it has been one whole year since we met LiYang in China!!  She has grown and changed, even in this short amount of time.  She is a lovely young lady, who has not had the easiest of times this year.  She has really missed all things China.  She misses her grandma, her aunt, her friends and teachers from China.  She has done really well with us, though.  She is smart, funny, very artistic, and very sweet.  She has made friends at school, and at church, and has started participating in the youth group activities.  We know that God has some majorly special plans for this young lady.  Her grandma is a Christian, so LiYang already knows a lot about God and the Bible.  He is working on her!!!  Here she is in the same outfit she had on when we met...

Happy Gotcha Day, Alyssa

One year ago today, in China, we received our third daughter, Alyssa.  It is so hard to believe she has been here a whole year.  She has learned so much - she knew no English, and now, has forgotten most of her Chinese.  She is a very smart young lady!  We can't wait to see what God has in store for this special little girl!
