Our family has been asked by God to answer the cry of an adorable little boy in China to have a family!! He is a special little boy with an amazing, sweet heart even though his physical heart isn't "perfect". We are honored and blessed to answer his cry.

How God Led us to Jace
Just to tell you a little about our family for those of you who don't know, we have a biological son Justin who is 22. We also have 3 children we adopted from China. Makenna is 10, Madison 7, and Jaxson 5. I have such a passion for the children of China and would bring an entire orphanage home if I could. However I assumed our family was complete because my husband was sure of that or so he thought!!!!!
For Christmas I got my husband a Kindle. I told him to download the book "Choosing to See" by Mary Beth Chapman because it was on sale. Never told him to read it, however I am so happy he did. After he finished it he came to me and said, "We need to adopt again and look at the little boy on Love Without Boundaries Blog named Robert." I had seen Robert/Jace and their plea for him a family but had not mentioned it because I thought I knew what his answer would be. I had no idea God was preparing my husbands heart by reading that book and that hundreds of people had been praying for Robert/Jace to find his forever family. At first I thought my husband had gone crazy bringing this up. Little did I know that he had been in contact with Love without Boundaries and researching Jace's condition. (Single ventricle) But when I saw the tears in his eyes I knew this was all Gods plan. We contacted our agency and immediately began the process to "lock Jace's file". We know his condition is very serious but truly believe that no matter how long we get to have Jace, he is going to have a family that loves him unconditionally!! We are so honored that God has chosen our family to answer his cry.
On January 25,2011 we received our preapproval from China to adopt Jace Yan Yin. We are so happy and being blessed in so many ways by this. This just shows that if we are obedient to God and his call for us in our lives amazing things can and will happen!!!!
On February 1st (my birthday) New Day Foster Home where Jace lives posted on their blog the events of when they told Jace he had a forever family!!! Could not have asked for a better birthday present. The joy in his face is so worth all the paperwork!!!!!
STUDYING HIS FAMILY
So we ask you to pray for our family and Jace and that the paperwork goes quickly.
Follow our blog as we race to get Jace!!!!!!!!!
