Here She Is!

We would like to introduce Cai to you. We will be celebrating her second Birthday next Saturday. And while we will be sad that she won't be here with us to celebrate her special day, we are looking forward to helping her celebrate many, many more! We sent a Birthday cake package to her orphanage and hopefully we will receive pictures of her enjoying her cake with her foster family and friends.
There is no better day than today to introduce Cai because today is Orphan Sunday. There are so many children in need of families that can use these extra prayers today. We feel especially blessed to be called to be the parents of two of these children.
Cai is living at an orphange in the province of Hubei. In a report we received, it says " The neighbors all love her because she looks so lovely and she talks sweetly. They always bring good food and toys to her and sometime they invite her into their homes as their guest. She has outgoing personality and she is very lively. She likes to watch TV."
We are hoping to have our paperwork ready to be sent to China soon. Once again, I am praying for patience and having to remember every day to place my trust and faith in God- ( and then to leave it there!) When things aren't happening as quickly as I would like, and we are waiting for yet, another approval so that we can hurry and wait for something else, I must remind myself that "If He brings you to it, He will bring you through it," and most importantly that this is not my "thing", this is His. And just as miraculously as he placed Cai into our lives, He will place her into our arms.
Please keep Cai in your prayers. We are praying daily for her, and are already praying that her little heart will be prepared for us.

" No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him." 1 Cor. 2:9
