A Miracle Day {HollyMei Day}

What are miracles made of?
Exactly what Ephesians 3:20 says- Immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His powerthat is at work within us.
Answered prayer was certainly true today... God showed up BIG for us in SO many ways!

We left for civil affairs @ 8:30am and saw HollyMei for the first time about 9:30... Love at first sight!
She came in so quiet and shy... scared of what all the fuss was about.
There was much hustle and bustle and she cried when needed to use the restroom then again when the orphange peole left.





Made it back to hotel to get settled back down~
And it wasn't long before we had our first smiles... all thanks to bubbles~
I am not exageratting when I say they were pretty much BFFs from the beginning.
Evie is the BEST big sister!!!~
Praise The Lord we have our beautiful baby in our arms forever!!!~
Lots of love will bring joy to these precious eyes~
We painted toenails too and she was SO proud of them!!!~

Finished the day with a Chinese feast... Evie and Holly ate like they hadn't eaten in days when in reality they have been eating nonstop all day~
Thankful to have our little foursome united and finish out this trip to get back to the rest of our family!!!
We LOVE and MISS you all like crazy!!!!!

  5. Had to get up early today and peeking in on your blog to see beauty from ashes made it all worth while. Be still my heart. She is yet another beautiful child added to your family. That very first picture speaks so much; a scooter, a bike, high heels, cell phones and a frightened little girl~so Ch*na. We have come to count on you for some great pictures. Would have loved to see that reaction of your kiddos at home as they see their Mei Mei for the first time in your arms. xoxo
