They passed.

January 1, 2016

Two years ago today, we saw this darling face for the very first time. Our adoption agency called to ask us if we would look over the file of a one-year-old boy from Guizhou, China. We were told that he had a rare disease, and that his file had been viewed before by other agencies/families, but they had passed on him.

They PASSED on him.

While I find it hard to believe that anyone could look at this kid and pass him up, I am so thankful that they did. To think that he came so close to being snatched up by someone else…to think that he could be in someone else’s family right now nearly takes my breath away.

How thankful we are that God orchestrated this match. He must have known that we needed Haven, and Haven needed us.

No New Year’s Eve will ever compare to the one we had two years ago.

On that day, our son was found. And the rest is history ♥

    Qianxinan Child Welfare Institute in Guizhou Province: our Gotcha Day is two weeks from today thus we depart in 12 days (17March2016) to receive our son, Qian Fu Xin. Hoping for last minute advice as our trip itinerary mirrors yours (also through GWCA.) You never got to actually visit the orphanage, did you?

    No, we weren’t allowed to visit the orphanage. We were told it was almost a 5-hr drive from Guiyang. Are you going to see the Huangguoshu waterfall?? It’s so beautiful. Definitely the crown jewel of Guizhou province, and it’s the largest waterfall in China. It would be meaningful for you to be able to tell your son someday that you were able to take him there…and have photos of him there. It will be something that he can take pride in! I wish you all of the best on your journey! If you have a blog set up, I would love to follow along if you are comfortable sharing that. May God bless you in the days ahead!
