Journey to Andrew

On May 1, 2009 {the 2 year anniversary of seeing AnnaGrace} a new list with our agency came out...My Mom looks at these a lot just because it brings her joy, I assume. Well this time was no different she was just looking at children after all Our family was COMPLETE. heh. My Mom opens the list and scrolls down to the very last number...46. She clicks on it, sucks in her breath and automatically knows, that is her son. He was 3 years old, Lived in Beijing China, and had a Cleft Lip and Palate. He was beautiful and she was in Love. She sent an email to our agency asking for his file only to find out that there was a list of people waiting. (The list had only been out FIVE minutes!) So we prayed. For over a month we didn't hear anything. Until on June 5, 2009 we got an email that said "Apparently God has other plans for this Precious Child's Life. Would you like to view his file?" My Mom was at work in her crowded office and started saying "No! No! God, you already told us No! We can't take another child!" My dad works at the same place with my Mom because they own a business and talked her into viewing his file. For days we all prayed over this sweet child and with every moment passing we grew more certain this was the child God intended to be in Our Family. On June 15, 2009 we said "Yes" to Chang Jian Hui's referral! I was thrilled. For THREE years I prayed that God would allow our family to adopt another child. My dream was coming true!! I was SO excited! 
So the Journey began...
On June 17, 2009 we sent our LOI to China and waited. On June 25, 2009 we got our PA. What an AMAZING day that was. We were thrilled to say the least...
The wait drug on and soon we got our DTC, LID, and after 63 days of waiting LOA! 
On December 31, 2009 at 11:01 we received an email that said we were going to CHINA!!! What an amazing Christmas/New Year! We got the email right as it became 2010 in Beijing where our little man was!! How GREAT is our God. 
On January 19, 2010 we left for China. It was so amazing to see how God's hand perfectly orchestrated our ENTIRE Adoption. On January 21, 2010 4 sweet little ones walked off an elevator in Beijing and into the arms of their Forever Families. It was a magical day. Andrew Hudson JianHui was now ours! He did SO well and adapted amazingly to us...God is faithful! 
We spent the next 3 weeks in China getting to know our precious boy and finishing up our paperwork!!
On February 6, 2010 we came home!!!
The journey to Andrew was not easy but seeing his sweet face everyday makes it SO worth it. We will be forever grateful to the surgeons who did his surgery and the Nannies in the orphanage. God is Faithful, Always.
