Today at church we said good-bye to our friends the Pools. They’ll be moving to Virginia later this week and we won’t see them as regularly. Fortunately Rachel has family here so they’ll be back at times and we’ll get to see them. I was very sad to see them leave. The Lord has a plan for them and I’m OK with their departure. We had to leave friends and family when we left Nevada and Texas.
One of the families we left in Texas was the Mason’s. They’ve been planning and trying to adopt a baby from China for about three years now. Today, in China, they picked up their baby girl Nadia. Jessica and I had tears streaming down our faces as we watched these videos of Luanne & Mike holding their new baby girl. They will be heading home after about a week’s time I believe. We can’t wait to meet Nadia and see them again as a bigger family.
Many tears today, but we’re glad for what the Lord is doing!
