Once upon a time......

There was a little girl in far away China.


The poor little thing was sick and tiny.  She needed someone to take care of her and love her.  She needed a mommy and daddy.


A loving family took her in.  They loved her and cared for her and nursed her to health.  She grew stronger and healthier.  She grew and grew...



She was happy and loved in her little home.

But the family was not really her mother and father.  As much as they loved her, a true forever family needed to be found for this sweet princess who was so very special.

Years went by....



On the other side of the world a mother longed for another little girl.

She saw pictures of the little princess, and hoped and prayed for her.  More than anything in the world she wanted to bring this treasure home.


And then one day.....


her dream came true

I am that mother.  We are that family!
 

 

Precious Corrie at Morning Star Family Home will be coming home to her forever family soon!!

We can't wait to wrap you in hugs and kisses, sweet girl.  We already love you so very much!

 
Yes, we are so excited about our newest blessing who will be joining us hopefully by the end of this year.  Please follow along on our journey to Corrie!!

  9. We are so excited to hear that you are adopting Corrie! Ever since my daughter Emma and I visited China in 2011 she has held a special place in our hearts. For months she prayed that Corrie would find her forever family soon! It is so neat to see how God has answered so many prayers!

    If you would like I could sent you all the pictures I took of Corrie. My husband and I are professional photographers and I took pictures of all of the kids who were at Morning Star at the time.

    In Him,

  11. So I had to investigate this post I saw about Corrie on your FB page....Somehow I missed the part that YOU were adopting her....I totally thought it was someone else and you were doing all this fundraising stuff for them! Congratulations! She couldn't have picked a better family!
