Wow....what a wonderful suprise!

Today is our 13th wedding anniversary - and God gave us a special gift today :)  Some of you have asked why we can't talk to the foster parents in China since they are American.  Well, according to the Hague rules and regulations, we can have no correspondence with the foster family until after we finish with the adoption process.  What is suprising is that apparently the foster family in China was not aware of this rule.  This weekend the American foster mom in China left 2 messages at the office for us and then called 2 times this morning! We CAN NOT talk to them at all or it could damage our adoption process.  So, the wonderful girls at the office kind of stalled with her and in the mean time I was trying to get a hold of our agency (they are an hour behind us). On our last post we had just sent over a photo album and letter to Aaron, which she received and then tracked us down on the internet!  Well, one of our workers at Holt (our international agency) ended up calling her this morning (and waking her up! it was 3 in the morning in China!).  The foster mom told her that she just wanted to let us know that they had received our photo album and letters.  She also told her that they are now calling him Aaron (I am crying tears of joy as I right this!), and he has been looking at the photos and he will flip back to my picture and say "mom" - God is so good.  We pray for Aaron so often through the day, and recently I have been asking God to please allow an update on Aaron to come quickly - well, He answered, just not the way I pictured - but so much better!  She also said that he is doing very good and speaking English and Chinese.  We are so thankful for this unexpected update!
Thank you again for your continued prayers~



  1. That is such great news! I love when a prayer like this gets answered so readily. Like God was just waiting to be asked. What a blessing! Love you all!!!
