Two Hours Until We Leave

I think that is the hardest thing about this trip, but God has been so gracios to us and we awit Monday when we meet our Hope. Please pray for us as our computer is not working well so we will be at the mercy of others to blog and email. God Bless all of you who have prayed for us and continue to do so. God bless those of you who have given to make this a reality..
To God be the Glory. Our flight is at 1150 from Newark NJ.. Goodnight or should I say Zai Jian...Kim

Christmas Day.

Well this will be the last Christmas with just the 5 of us.  God has been so to us on our long journey to get Hope in China-  We will be contacting Faith International Adoption Agency on Monday to start travel arrangements,  We are hoping that we only will be gone 10 days siince we are not planning to tour this time.  However, we know this is in God's hands.  Athough we will be away from family and friends her in the states we know that the time with Hope kim and I is vital to the bonding process.  Please keep us in your prayers as we fullfill part of the vision God has given to our family.  The other day I was asked Why we adopt since this will be our 4rth.  I probably could have given a better answer but was thrown alittle off guard because it just who we are and we do- But the next time would be- Why wouldn't we?  I mean God tells us to take care of the widows and orphans right?  Until next time- Tim

Our first glimpse of Hope...

Our first glimpse of Hope was in August 2009! She was so beautiful and when Tim saw her he said, Call the adoption agency. That beautiful little face has been in our thoughts everyday since. She was found on
January 9, 2008, abandoned nearby the No.10 bus-stop room of the public transportation system in
Tianjin City, China. She was taken to the Tiajin City Children's Welfare Institute. She was subsequently found to have a congenital cleft lip III degree, congenital cleft palate, and mild cerbral palsy.
Look at those eyes! Isn't she beautiful!
