What a wonderful weekend spent with great friends and watching these two buddies play together! It is amazing to see how much they have grown in only 3 months with their forever families! So thankful that our journeys brought us together! #adoptionrocks #reunited #chinaadoption #sweetboys @dr.mark_kreamer @kelli.pennington

A weekend gone too fast.. ❤️ So glad we live within driving distance to our sweet friends, and extremely thankful the boys will always share such a special bond!

•This girl•
It hasn’t been easy transitioning into a family of 4 with a newborn, but this girl has rocked her new role of big sister. Earlier in the year we went through a month-long hard time as we transitioned our house to welcoming Henry. Changes for Paisley can be hard for her to process especially when the changes are new for us too. The unknowns can be scary. We spent many, many hours reassuring her that she is permanently a part of our family and she wasn’t leaving our house. Her past trauma surfaced and it was heart-breaking to hear about her thought process as she tried to cope with the changes happening in our house.
But today, she is thriving. She is happy and more secure than we thought she would be at this point in time. We don’t take credit for this wonderful transition because the only thing we’ve done is love her fiercely and pray HARD for her heart. It’s been God who continues to heal and protect her heart from her past. As long as we are breathing, we will continue to fight for her, because she is worth it.

Did you know that there are many older children who are waiting for families? Also the longer they wait, the less likely they are to be adopted! Could you or someone you know be the right family for an older child? Link in our bio to request more information.

If you've spent any time in China you will know that the Chinese people are peculiarly adept at squatting. They can squat for hours. They can even sleep in a squatting position! Chinese people squat differently than most Americans in that their feet are flat on the ground. They don't squat on the balls of their feet. This maneuver takes skill and balance and it appears to be either pre programmed into Chinese children or it is very quickly learned. Some of our Little Flower Projects children are new to walking and already have this move down! And they are so cute when they hang out in this position!

Zane and Felicity had fun with dad at the park closest to our new house yesterday! Here are a couple videos... Epilepsy update, for those wondering: they raised his dose of onfi this past Tuesday. We had been seeing increasing amounts of seizures. Praying this helps with not too many side effects. He had a pretty long seizure yesterday morning. He does get tired often, and with that, very grumpy. I think the seizures and meds both really wipe him out. We are thankful for these moments of joy and laughter. It’s a crazy road to walk, but it causes us to cling so much more closely to Christ for the strength, grace, mercy, love, and patience we need for each and every day. #adoption #epilepsy #lennoxgastautsyndrome #chinaadoption #adoptionjourney #bringingzanehome

Two years ago today she was on her first plane ride with her new daddy to finalize the last bit of adoption paperwork in China. She had started to grieve, silently crying in the mornings to herself. Brent would just hold her and rock her, letting her feel it all. She was leaving the only life she knew and starting one that was completely unknown. I cannot even begin to imagine what this feels like.

Eloise has been such a brave warrior these last two years. Her journey has been such a reflection of God's love to me. And that heart of hers, those beautiful brown eyes, and the way she taps my back as she hugs me tight...it is love wrapped around me and inside me. She is a world changer, just by being all God made her to be.
Thanks, God. For letting me be her mama. You give such good gifts.

This nugget turns 7 today!! I cannot believe it. It an orphanage in China I stood in the lobby and waited and down the stairs came a staff woman with a tiny tiny tiny little baby... It was Miss Klayli. I wrapped her up and held her close and held her on my chest on that drive back to our home. Who knew then who she would become... God did, he knew. She is now this amazing big girl living with her forever family and I’m so happy to get to see her grow!! @mrscurtisbussard #believeingod #adoption #fostercare #godsplan #helloalohaadventure #china #chinaadoption #theluckyfew

A precious lady made two quilts ... one for Mila ... one for Elora! 😃😍I mean how precious is this?
.
I think Sadie is also enjoying the quilt. What do you think? 😉

Daddies are like miracles
.
& this girl loves hers with a fierce kind of love. A #love which was built on time & trust.
.
When Mila first came home she wasn’t really attached to either one of us. I mean ... the girl had such unhealthy attachment she probably would have gone to our mail lady & let the woman take her home.
.
After all... she came to us without even one hesitation... away from the nanny she knew so well.
.
If you haven’t seen our gotcha/coming home video yet ... the link is in bio.
.
The girl didn’t care who took her or showered her with love, kisses .... & she would most definitely go for food.
.
Totally NOT a normal behavior.
.
What is normal & healthy? A child who screams bloody murder when handed to a total stranger who then proceeds to take the kid away from all that’s familiar.
.
As you would imagine ...
.
It took Mila several months to begin & form any kind of attachment to us. & it began with mama. Mila’s love for me became something fierce. There was a long period when no one in her world existed but mama.
.
Then ...
.
Little by little ... she began to see this large 6’4” bearded man, with a really loud voice. The man with a silly & gentle demeanor. A man who was always meant to live in her heart in a deep & meaningful way.
.
Something magical began to happen ...
.
She began to fall deeply in love with her daddy. Today ...when I look at the way she adores him ... how she trusts his hand will always catch her each time she flies up into the air ... takes my breath away.
.
I believe ...every little girl needs to be caught by her daddy with that kind of love.
.
Let’s hope China Joy number two 👧🏻 loves daddy with a wild heart of her very own. Because this daddy has so much love to give.
