Little Blessings

This week we received a wonderful blessing. A written and picture update of our daughter, Nara Josette. We are told we should plan to travel to China in Feb. or March, April at the latest. Nara Josette is progressing 'well' at her SWI in Xianyang City, Shaanxi. The boys were very excited to see the new pictures of her, especially to see that she was 'playing pirates, too'. They concluded that from her hair bow, which they think is a pirate bandanna. I tried to explain to them it was a bow, but they don't understand why it wasn't tied like a bow. The boys can hardly wait to play with her their Sister! Also, I just realized that God gave us another sweet little blessing. The ribbon in her hair, is the ribbon that we used on her last pkg. that we sent to her. It's sweet that they used it in her hair, I had hoped that they would and God allowed us to see it. :-)

We sent her a care package and birthday cake from , they are a fabulous Christian company that helps parents to contact waiting children in China. She will celebrate her 2nd Birthday next Wednesday, November 25th! (In case you haven't calculated it, Whit and Nara Josette are 9 weeks apart in age, they are what's called - Virtual Twins.) We wish she could be home with us for her celebration, but we know that she will be here soon. Please pray she has a joyful and peace next week, a love that only God can fill her from within. Thank you for your continual support, inquiries, and most of all, your prayers. Please continue to pray for our family. We are in the midst of trying to sell our home, buy a new home, and complete the adoption process, hopefully before Nara Josette's arrival. Thank you all, prayer warriors.

Some exciting new details we've learned:
