~5 Years Ago Today~

I love how Facebook will share memories with you

I posted this 5 years ago...

With great joy we announce the newest addition to our family: Lily Jane "Janie" Wright, born in Hunan China on May 9, 2008. We will travel to bring her home in February or March:) You can now pick yourselves off the floor at this time!!!!

I remember receiving this picture and crying because she looked happy, the rest of her pictures always showed a sad looking child. Now we know she is anything but sad haha

I added this to our post today:)

5 years ago today we shared that we were adopting again. Our journey to Janie QingQing was a spiritual journey for sure, many questions and fears. To say that I am incredibly grateful we said yes to God is an understatement. His hand is ALL over this precious feisty girl and our hearts. I am laughing that we announced her as Lily Jane and obviously changed her name to Sarah Jane while in China.....yeah that is how we roll apparently. 
I will forever be thankful that God woke me up at 4:30 every morning for a week worrying about this child and finally got my attention that He wanted us to fight for her and fight we did and will forever do. She is a rare jewel....we are privileged to be her Mommy and Daddy. 

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
