What a mighty God we serve!!

Do y'all remember when I posted a few days ago that we had a secret, some amazing news I wanted to share??

Well, we had some mountains that needed moved and things that had to happen. Basically getting our ducks in a row so to speak.

And you know God is good!! I trusted and we put our faith in Him and you know, every single prayer has been answered....

1. Adhering firmly and devotedly,
2. Having or full of faith
3. The steadfast adherents of faith

And before you all jump to conclusions, no we are not adopted again...right now. Instead we have been given and amazing opportunity, something that will enable us to have family around all the time. Something we haven't been able to do in over almost 20 years....

We are going home!! Home where we grew up, home where we have family. Home where our children will be able to see their grandparents, and cousins and aunts and uncles.

Honestly, we have struggled from day one of our move here to VA. It hasn't been easy. And we have both prayed for a solution. Kerry has been traveling nonstop for the past 7 mths. He has missed seeing Rachel grow and thrive since bringing her home 7 mths ago. And now we get to move home.

Can you imagine?!? And the company, my husband will work for....they are taking very good care of us.

It's amazing if you think about it. And we owe all the credit to God. Only HE could do this, only HE could have worked out every detail.

Most of our family have only seen Gracie a handful of times...and this precious child...

her joyfully happy face, some of our family have never met her. And now, because of God, we are going home!!

Very simply, we praise God because He is worthy of our praise ( 1 Chron. 16:25; Rev. 5:11-14).

He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is our Creator, Provider, Healer, Redeemer, Judge, Defender and much more

so, if you are ever in the Ohio are, look us up....

Desiree, this is just wonderful and you so deserve it! Send me an email, I'd love to know the details, who Kerry will be working for, where you're moving to, etc.!

How wonderful that you are able to make this move!
If I lived closer, I'd help you pack... wait, if I lived where you'd be moving *to* I'd help you pack.

I mourn the loss of our Xuzhou friends but I am completely thrilled for you nonetheless! I hope this move brings you the peace you so desperately need :)
