Bye Bye Beard and Shaking Tambourines

Mo shaved his beard…and yes along the way he looked a little creepy… we laughed so hard we cried.

We sent paper work to our agency yesterday to lock the file of a little boy in China…who I will call Peanut.

He is NOT the little boy I blogged about in the previous posts. God is writing an awesome story for that little guy and his future family. We have worked through the depth of emotions tied to him. We have peace that can only be explained by the presence of God’s good gracious hand.

We are taking steps to lock another beautiful little boy. We can not wait to share with you WHO PEANUT IS!!! OH MY GOODNESS I STILL JUST CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!!!!

I am at the Created for Care Conference in ATL again this weekend…which is the same retreat I mentioned in the first post linked below. The retreat is done in Feb and again in March. The Lord’s timing is so so sweet…. I am going to worship Him this weekend with my tambourine in hand!!!!!!!

Paper work is making it’s way to China. Once we have pre approval from China that we can move forward with him, we will be able to share more details!!!!
