Rose's 5th Gotcha Day

Tomorrow we celebrate Rose's 5th Gotcha Day. On December 18th, 2006, Rose entered our family as a 4.5 year old - six months after a nine month old Grace entered our family. We plan on celebrating Rose's special day by having a yummy meal at a "German" Churrasco that also serves lots of sushi and Chinese cuisine. You can't get that in Indiana! Below is a great Gotcha Day video that Megan put together three years ago.

Kayak Across the Pacific Again

I feel compelled to take a break from my M.Ed. studies to share a friend's blog: Kayak Across the Pacific Again. Please take a second to read a little about their difficult adoption journey and spend some time lifting them up. They need it.

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. James 1:27

Two weeks ago we met up with David and Julie in Beijing before they picked up their little Josie.
