BIG NEWS!

As many of you know, I have been involved in the process of international adoption. I have been anxiously waiting the referral of a baby girl from Vietnam. Recently, with all the Vietnam controversy, I began to think my adoption would never happen!

Well I have officially joined the world of blogging because I have some really big news!!

I have accepted a referral of a BEAUTIFUL little girl. She is 6 months old and at an orphange in Ho Chi Minh City. I really don't feel comfortable sharing any other information about her on the internet until she is in my arms forever!!

I really hope to have her home by her 1st birthday--but I know it's all in God's timing! And his timing is always perfect. So for now, I will just stare at her picture and dream of the day she is in my arms!!

Her referral came into my life at just the perfect time! Without going into major details, I can just say that God knew she was my daughter--and His hand is in control to make sure we are united!!

I really haven't told too many of my friends/family about this blog. I really just wanted it to be available for them to read while we we are in Vietnam.

Please continue to pray for my little "Janie" and for all the orphans of Vietnam. Pray that they will find their way home to their forever families!!
