Part 2....

Let me start by saying that I think it is really cruel to drag this announcement out a long time :) ....but I also want to make it a rich story that details all that God is doing. So in order to not make this a super long post that keeps you at your computer for 2 hours, I will do it in batches. Keep checking in, I will try to get it all done in a short amount of time!


I had been getting the adoption "itch" again just a short time after arriving home with Lucy. Though there were days that I seriously thought that I couldn't handle a single more person in this house (or even the ones already here!)! But we are settling in nicely (ok, it's always chaotic around here and never, ever again will my house be completely clean all at once...I've finally let go of that fantasy). I was curious about looking into some other countries and called an agency to get info on Bulgaria. I was very intrigued and couldn't stop thinking about it....but I also couldn't get Ch*na off my mind. I really want Lucy to have at least one sibling who looks like her. BUT adopting now, so I was told, was too soon...we needed to wait a year (that is the "rule" for Ch*na and for most agencies).


Ch*na has tugged at my heart for so long....I want to go back there so badly. In fact, I was recently vacuuming and I began praying (that's when I do a lot of praying...during my chores)that we would be able to visit Ch*na next spring or summer. Where was this coming from??? With my fundraiser for Bill & Lynsay going on, I had such a desire to go see them & see what they are doing....which is A LOT (trust me...). We have no money to just up and go on a "vacation" to such a far away place but I prayed that God would make a way. All the while, I was thinking....how in the world can that happen?? However, after all God did with Lucy's adoption...nothing surprises me with how He provides & opens doors.

Ok, so by the way I'm figuring. We are going to have so much stinking fun when you come that you are going to need a way to keep coming back right? So, once every year or so for the next, oh say at least 6 years, equals.......yeah 5 or 6 trips to Ch that God is going to need to provide for. (6 years is only a totally random number, it could be more like 20!) I'm thinking instead of Mandarin you are going to need to read "cheaper by the dozen!" How Ma? (this means "good?")
