Today there is great news to be shouted from the rooftops!!! Baby Ellie is with her forever family!! (Well...Mama and Daddy right now. Her 7 siblings are waiting at home for her!!!) I am over the moon excited for them!!!
Look at this sweet, precious, beautiful little girl!!
I have had the privilege of following this wonderful family's previous trips to China as they adopted 4 of their children and last year Pam and I began to email one another and a sweet friendship has been born! We have been praying for this day since she and Bill accepted Ellie's referral back in May of 2011. Oh how my heart has hurt for them as they patiently waited for God's perfect time to bring them together even though that time was almost 9 long months! I.cannot.imagine!! Their time in China is also special as Ellie and Hannah are from the same province of Hunan so I am able to picture the exact room in my mind where they met Ellie. Oh what precious memories that room holds!!!
And yet, now...NOW Ellie is with them and God's promise has been fulfilled. He has brought them together as a family and oh what a precious family it is! If you want to read an amazing account of God in action, read Ellie's Story here! God is SO good!!!
If you want to hop over and congratulate this family and follow their journey in China, you may do so here.
It's so sweet each morning as I open their website and Hannah excitedly exclaims, 'That baby Ellie!'
Congratulations Pam and Bill! Hannah and I are so excited to see Ellie in your arms and we continue to pray for you. We love you!
