Hello From Beijing!

Well, We made it! We are in Beijing! The day that we left was the biggest fight to get her that I have ever experienced. I honestly was afraid that things would not come together and that we would not make it. But! I serve a mighty and awesome God that cares for the orphans and He showed up! Everyprayer was answered! Every dollar that was needed was provided! Praise God for the dear friends that we have and the family that supported us. Everyone that pitched in to bring Jailynn home will forever be in my heart and prayers! Everything worked out at the 11th hour and 59 minutes! No Kidding! God is awesome and really hears our prayers and meets our need.We just have to be willing to ask Him and then Wait on Him. Here are some pics of us on the flight, airport, and hotel.
More to come later.
Counting down to Gotcha day on Monday May 4th!

My GuestBook

Hi! I am glad you are visiting my blog! Please sign my guestbook or leave me a comment. It will mean so much to me, Jordyn and Jailynn!

The rest of our family

In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!

God Is Awesome!



I am Praising God tonight because He has Heard my cries and answered my prayers. We have recieved a generation donation from a wonderful family toward our fund raising efforts. We have also recieved generous donations from wonderful people through this website and through Jailynn's Prayer. So far, the total fundraising has reached a total of $4000!!!!!!!! Thank you! Thank You! Thank you to everyone for helping us to bring Jailynn home! We are hoping to travel sometime this month and still need to raise money. I know that God is providing for our family through the unselfish and generous giving from special and wonderful people like you!

We have our LOA!!
