Surprise ~ Sunday Snapshot

Yes, we have news.....

It wasn't expected and actually has a red thread connection for us~ This little guy here, well I advocated for him about two or three years ago.....

And he was still waiting back in June....when we received his file.

And well, we weren't thinking about adopting again. We have much going on right now, Rachel's surgery which went well. Gracie's surgery coming up and Hannah is having oral surgery....so our lives were full.

But, I showed the picture and file to Kerry thinking we could help him out, find a family.

And we did, find him a family that is.....

Ours!!! 

We are very excited about adding Joshua to our family. The kids are excited and Jake, he can not wait to have a new brother!!!

So here he is:




And an updated picture we received about a week or so ago....


Joshua is in Sichuan, China. His orphanage has never completed an international adoption. So please say a prayer for us and him.

And if you are in the market for custom luggage tags or passport holders, visit Joshua's new website here.
