TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

Introducing......Toryn Ling Kendrick

Oh, my! What a day! Our RA came today! I certainly wasn't expecting it this soon (42 days)! What a wonderful surprise! This is the acceptance letter we have been waiting on from China! This means that China agrees to let us adopt Yang Ling Jun (soon to be Toryn Ling!)and he's all ours! Our family coordinator told us that we would PROBABLY travel mid to late Dec. This is a HUGE answer to prayer. She said it would probably be end of Dec., which is another HUGE blessing because I was real concerned about the kids missing too much school! I can't think of a better Christmas gift than to pick up our little bundle of joy close to Jesus' birthday! Oh, thank you, LORD! I can also post his adorable picture now! He's a cutie- don't you agree? Join with us in praying that travel will be as much of the Christmas Break as possible. I am so overwhelmed and I have so much to do!
Also, we are having a yard sale tomorrow for an Adoption Fundraiser. Please, also pray that it is a huge success.

Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.
2 Corinthians 9:15

WOW!!!! His timing is ALWAYS perfect. It was no surprise to Him who orchestrated your adoption journey that your RA arrived so soon. I am so excited to see your beautiful sons face! I love it when RA's are received and families can share their precious child. I can't wait to follow along on your journey. His timing is ALWAYS perfect.
