2 journeys to china...

i've just come off a 'month of stories' and wanted to quickly share a couple of real life adoption stories that i am following right now.

my friends jaclyn and patrick are in china right now spending their very first day with the newest member of their family {i think you'll LOVE his name!}...the beginning of their life as a family of 7!  check out their story HERE

on the flip side, my friends matt and shari are just beginning their adoption story.  after being completely content with their 2 biological kiddos for the past 5 years they have suddenly received an unexpected call to add a certain precious little girl into their family...the beginning of their life as a family of 5!  check out their story HERE
my heart is always so full when i have the privilege to witness a family opening the door of their home and their heart to a child who otherwise would never know what 'family' felt like.  both of these families {and so many others} have stepped out in faith down a sometimes difficult and scary road that ultimately leads them to the child God created them to love and parent.  if you have ever wondered what you can do to help orphaned children here is one quick and easy contribution you can make right now...go to matt and shari's blog and donate any little {or BIG} amount of money you feel you can provide to helping them bring their daughter home...that is money well spent...
