2 Weeks Home

Wow!! I can't believe we have only been home a few weeks and yet I feel like we have come SO far!  We have been settling in and adjusting to having a 2 year old again....and she is ALL 2...if you know what I mean!  Before we left for China I was obsessed interested in looking at other blogs waiting for God's perfect timing to send our family on our way to bring home our daughter.  Most of the blogs seemed too good to believe.  However, I shouldn't be surprised...God is so good and He has a heart for adoption.  Sometimes it is hard to document the difficult moments and we definitely have had some of those. However, it is amazing to see how faithful God has been. When we first brought Lily back to our hotel room in China on Forever Family Day, we were just getting to know her and she was just getting to know us. Like any 2 year old, she was testing her boundaries. In just 4 weeks we have seen our little Lily grow so much. She's learned how to communicate. She uses signs and is now speaking several english words. She seems to understand a lot of what we are saying to her.  It feels like she has been a part of our family for a long time and we love her so much.  We can't wait to see how God continues to help us grow in our faith and we are so thankful for this precious gift that He has given to us. To think that there are times when it is hard to step out in faith....could we have missed it?  I am so thankful that we said 'yes' to His calling.  Here are some pictures of Lily at home!

Happy at home!



  1. It is ALWAYS a blessing to see God's hand in adoption. She is a cutie! Can't wait to meet her.

  2. So glad you all are settling in. She looks as happy as can be!! Praying for a continued wonderful transition!
