Living Faith

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.

There is no place like home

And Chloe is sitting beside me playing on the blanket with the puppies.

When they told me we could go home the first thing she said is she wanted to play with the puppies.

I believe with all my heart that this child was meant to be ours. Would we have fallen in love with another child if I did not happen to come upon Yujun's photo? Yes, and her story would have been just as miraculous. However, the "coincidences" surrounding our Precious Jade are just too unreal.

We are home with the puppies and would you believe that the smallest puppy of the litter, our surprise puppy, that we named after Chloe's urologist, Duncan, has a meningocele.

Little Chloe that wears size 2 and 3 clothing. The smallest in her class in China at 24 pounds and 35 inches, who came to us with a meningocele has chosen her favorite puppy, Duncan.


The puppy who received an nasal gastric tube, and IV fluids while Chloe was in the hospital with a nasal gastric tube and IV fluids to overcome her set backs.

My husband nursed Duncan and kept him alive while Duncan the urologist nursed Chloe and kept her alive.

I am not sure I would call this God's since of humor.

Maybe a reminder that He has not forgotten us.

We have faced 3 years of simultaneous and concurrent trials, tribulations, and losses.

We cling to Him and our faith.

"In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which perishes, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ."1 Peter 1:6-7

We are home and we anxiously await to be taken to our home in His heavenly kingdom leaving this earthly kingdom behind.

Many Blessings

I can wait to share all that God showed us through Chloe's hospitalization!
