POA



Well, apparently I have to have another POA (power of attorney) to take with me to China. I ask my SW about this yesterday and it has to be notarized, state sealed, and authenticated. She said I have plenty of time, but then I reminded her of my prayer to travel quickly and she contacted the China team.

My SW is learning a lot about me and my faith. She emailed me back and said she will no longer take my prayers lightly that the China team has told me to expedite my authentication by using a courier service because we could travel quickly !!!!

The journey of adoption, to claim our children, to pray for all those who are Fatherless/Motherless is no easy task. We are called to this and I gain strength from so many of you.

This picture was taken only a couple of months after Emily came home. This child changed our lives, our hearts, and our faith !!! I know the journey to Maggie will strengthen us and teaches us even more about God !!!

Could little Emily (what a great name) be any cuter?? I really can't wait to see your family portrait in a few years, what a great picture of the gospel being lived out!
