Life Beyond the Walls of an Orphanage.

We are experiencing so,
many firsts with our two Asian sensations.
If we stayed home and watched TV all day they would be perfectly happy.
Because, as they have shared with us, that was their "life" for the past few years.
Wake up. School. TV. Bed.
Wake up. School. TV. Bed.
Wake up. School. TV. Bed.

Real life has been a life change for them fo sure.
Yes it's much harder to pack everyone up and go.
Yes they are somewhat unpredictable as to how they will react to new environments.
Yes our life is much more complex than it used to be.
But YES God is at work in their lives and watching them explore the world beyond the walls of instituion living is an experience like no other.

Zoo experience last week.
Yet another first.

Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. Isaiah 12:5


  1. Love the picture of Joey in front of the window...magazine-worthy!

  2. Oh sweet boys. I miss them :(

  3. I think it is awesome, although I am sure in some ways tough, that you get to experience so many "firsts" with your A.S.! (love that)

  4. Thank you for your sweet comment and wanting to follow us back to China for Kaleb!! :) I'm so sorry I haven't been on here more....it's been CRAZY with Jen's wedding and Kaleb's adoption trip coinciding here. I need to catch up with you and so many others. Thank you for staying with me. :) HUGS!!
