Pray for Huan

This little girl has stolen my heart. I am asking all of you to PLEASE pray for her. My heart aches that this precious 8 year old litle girl does not have a family. Here is the description of her. Please pray. Because I am only 14, I am unable to adopt her (Oh I wish I could!) So I will advocate for her and pray for God's will in this precious girls life. She has a purpose in this life. She is not meant to grow up in an orphanage. So please pray.

Huan means "happy" in Chinese. But in Huan's photos, she is not smiling. Well, she might be smiling inside, but the repair work on her cleft palate (at least the gum area) is such that she doesn't seem interested in smiling for the camera. It's a shame...she is a beautiful little girl, with big, inquisitive eyes and a precious face. But I'm sure she has heard all the comments from strangers and mean-spirited children. She is now 8 years old, and more than ready for someone to help her. She needs a mom and dad to scoop her up, bring her home, love her, love her, love her...and arrange the repair work for her mouth so she can smile. Then she will be happy!

*If this might be your daughter please email me, comment, facebook me (if we are friends). SHARE THIS! Tell everyone you know! I want to find this sweet girl a HOME.
Thanks. lovelovelove, Ash

Three years ago. We had no idea who these precious children were. They didn't know us. They didn't know each other. Only God could do this. Take two children across the ocean and place them in what was a family of 5. Only HE could make the perfect match and put us all together as a family. Not only that but make two less Orphans in the world siblings! He is good.

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.
-Jeremiah 29:11

“Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.”

What's Going On Here?

So we are all doing well. I feel like I have not updated in a long time. I am kind of clueless as to what to update. So I will just tell you about the twinados (:

Andrew continues to amaze us with his English. It is coming along incredibly fast! He loves his Mei Mei! Watching him transform is absolutely amazing. So precious. He wants to please us so badly. My Mom, Dad, and Andrew leave May 4 for Ohio to Shriners for evaluations for his cleft. Amazing prayer answered. Please pray for their safety. I never imagined I could love someone like I do Anna Grace but I love Andrew just the same! He is precious!

Anna Grace is doing great as well. She has accepted this new little one with amazing GRACE and loves him dearly. She is still her princess-y self and loves Ni Hao Kai-Lan and Barney. She sings along and does the motions. It is hilarious. She is still beautiful and quite the model. I am just in love with that face. (:

Here are some pictures from my photoshoot with the two today.


i luhhh youu mace-ayyy!
