A Thank You to All

Our little sons want to say a big

"Thank You"

to all of you who sent us donations

to take to Philip Hayden's Shepherd's Field Children's Village.

(And we do, too!)

Shepherd's Field is where our Philip lived happily in China

for three years before we met him.

Families whose children once lived at Shepherd's Field sent donations of shoes,

school supplies, bandaids and such. While a sweet young lady who once lived as

an orphan gave us many hats she personally knitted for children still orphans. A couple

of people from our church even gave us shoes to take to the village.

Only two more days and then Kevin, Philip, Elijah, and I fly across the world.

Our first stop will be to stay at Philip's China home, Shepherd's Field.

We are all pretty excited about that!

Then the next stop will be to receive our Sophia Yilin! She has a little less than a

week until she is an orphan no more!

So very excited for the journey. Follow along at:

I'm so Excited to hear both boys are going with you to get Sophia. I know that's been a hard decision, and it may be a hard trip, but by Far the Best Trip you guys make, because you're bringing your baby girl home, and we're all Praying for you!
