Noah was surrounded by people who wanted to dissaude and detract him from following God's call in his life. Noah acted in faith to God's call even though what he was called to do went against common sense and the "rules". Noah ran his race with the intent to win. He did not worry about public opinion. We can look at Noah's life for guidance when it seems we are the only ones walking a certain path; running an only course. We are not alone in our faith. God will always be there to guide and help through life's many storms and trials. An active and living faith can at times require actions that may seem new and uncomfortable, but the rewards are eternal.

Time is running out
Chloe was truly running out of time. Before her adoption, we requested all the medical information she had while in China. All these documents were sent to the spina bifida clinic and we received a positive prognosis for how we could help her. However, Chloe had kidney disease that had gone undiagnosed by many until she got extremely sick over Christmas 2010, two months after getting her home. At the age of 5 she had already lost 30% of her kidney function and would continue to digress unless something was done. Our urologist said we needed to operate as soon as possible. God had truly laid a little girl on our hearts that needed a chance outside her beautiful native country. We have been so blessed and humbled to answer the calling.
