Two China Dolls and a Prince!

This blog chronicles the story of 2 of our adoptions, both older children when they came home. It begins in 2008 and will continue in the hopes we can be of encouragement and information to anyone thinking of older child adoption.

A new picture of Jaxon!

This picture was taken just this past Sunday (Monday China time).  Zane, the boy on your right, is the one being adopted that day by our friends, the Verhulsts, from Independence. Jaxon, whom James claims he will continue to call "Lucky" is on your left and was just apparently woken up by Zane to snap this picture.  Keep in mind it was about 3pm in China and Jaxon was sleeping!  Guess teenagers are the same on summer vacation all over!  We've been told Jaxon is asking when we are coming as his birthday of August 21 is approaching fast.  Soon, son, soon!  Actually, we plan to leave anywhere from Aug. 4 to the 6th depending on when our Consulate Appointment in Guangzhou winds up being.  "CA" is the last appointment in the adoption process; after that, Jaxon can legally leave China and come home with us.  So hopefully, within the next 10 days, we will have our son and James will have his brother!  I think it is finally sinking in to James that he's about to fly 9,000 miles away from home; I can't wait to share this experience with him!  God has truly blessed us in leading us in faith and ability to adopt from China not once, not twice, but THREE times; Jazmin, Judi, and Jaxon may not be children of my body, but they are and will always be the children of our hearts.
