Oh this made me cry because I thought of how we will be welcomed into heaven with this kind of joy and excitement. I though of how my husband, parents, and other loved ones will greet me. So very, very precious!

What a sweet precious family you have. My sister, who met you at Created for Care turned me on to your blog, and I just LOVE it! Your newest addition is just the cutest, and seems like he fits right in! He and my oldest son are only a couple days apart, and that is such a sweet age.

I don’t “stalk” many blogs of people of I don’t know-ha, but your family is just too cute 🙂 Good luck settling in with you new angel.

So beautiful! I started crying! My husband and I are just beginning our journey to China Adoption, and I cannot imagine the joy, and overwhelming love you felt! Praise Jesus for another child who is home FOREVER!

We are…HOME!

We made it home last night at 7:30pm! So thankful!!! We are just settling and enjoying being together. Will post more later:) He woke up at 3:45am–I fixed him warm oatmeal with bananas…and we are just enjoying the quiet together in our HOME! So thankful. God is good! Now…to settle in as a family and […]

Couldn’t be happier for all of you. I will be in Atlanta next week for a conference…wishing there was time to meet face to face and connect in person. Continued prayers as you transition to home and life as family of SEVEN. Hugs across the miles!

Maureen - June 14, 2013 - 12:10 am

Hallelujah!! So thankful you are all home safe and sound. I get teary-eyed just thinking about all the love going on in your home. Praying for quiet, special moments together, just enjoying each other.

Things I love about you…

My sweet Zeke. I love the way you cut your eyes and grin at me–almost from behind as I hold you in my lap. I love the way you hide you face on my chest when things are overwhelming and the way you say my name…mama–in a scratchy whisper…it melts my heart every time. I […]

This post totally made me go ‘awwww…how adorable.’ It’s so sweet. Maybe when your son grows up, he can one day read all the lovely things you’ve written here, Andrea.

The day we met you… {Great is His Faithfulness}

Today was more than I could have hoped for–and I’m in awe as I get ready to go to bed after our first night with Zeke how perfect today has been. It has been tear free–although naturally it took awhile for our sweet boy to warm up. We took lots of time and didn’t rush […]

Sitting on the bench at an amusement park with tears in my eyes. So moved by your description of his first day with you…So thankful to be part of God’s incredible miracle of adoption!

Leese - June 3, 2013 - 2:40 pm

Oh the goodness of God is evident all over your update and photos! Yay, God!

Continuing to pray!

Oh my, HOW BEAUTIFUL is your son, Zeke?! Congratulations!!! Thank you for sharing your journey with the world. 😉 I’ve been waiting and waiting for THIS post, and I almost shouted out loud when I saw that your blog had been updated today. I’m SO thrilled to see your baby in your arms… of course I cried as I watched the slideshow, and now I just have a big ol’ grin plastered on my face. LOVE your family! Thank you for allowing so many folks to witness GOD IN ACTION. Our family will be praying for the Youngs, now a party of SEVEN – woohoo!!! 🙂

Wonderful news! So happy for you all! Enjoy!

LaKasha - June 4, 2013 - 10:49 am

So wonderful to see your family now complete and you heart start to fill with Zeke. And each hour you grow together. This has been the ever best thing I have ever done, went through, or been apart of in my whole life so far! I think so much of you and your family as we get ready to leave GZ and the Garden Hotel tom. Knowing that you will be here the next day. It has been wonderful and the hotel is wonderful ( not sure your staying here) but a little warning if you are….the area you have to go out to get meals is very rough. I felt like I didn’t need to have my son out after dark here. “street woman” trying to touch him and homeless men that crawl on the streets grabbed two of the boys in our group. So just be careful and on guard of those things. I wasn’t. God bless yall….we will fly back to Shanghai tom and back home thurs morning. I’ll be thinking of yall and checking in. God Bless LaKasha mother of two finally !

Alison - June 4, 2013 - 2:25 pm

YAY!!! PRAISE THE LORD!!! So excited and happy for ya’ll! Yes, great is His FAITHFULNESS indeed!!! 🙂

Brenda - June 5, 2013 - 2:41 am

The pure joy on your face is beautiful! Congratulations and so exciting to finally have Zeke in your family. Praise God for the glory you are bringing Him by caring for another orphan. A blessed boy.
