All Things Mr. Tate!!

First of all, can I hear a shout for this text I received this afternoon?


Go, paperwork, Go!!! YAAHHOOOO!!!

Ok, now that we got that out of our systems, can I hear another shout for all of this?


The UPS man is visiting us daily!!

What a blessing it will be to pack all these things up and carry them to China!!

*There are still many needs and a whole month to participate in the Amazon shower! The details are on the side bar at the top!

In other Tate news, our traveling crew will be Blake and Grant this time.


Blake and Grant

In all seriousness though, this decision was not easy, and it will be very hard for me to stay behind.

I loved China. Loved, loved it. And when I close my eyes I can still hear the sounds, smell the smells, and feel the heat and humidity of that amazing place where I left a piece of my heart.

To the store in China

But we have been approved for this plan, and do feel it is best for many reasons.

Blake and Grant’s passports are at the consulate in Chicago getting their visa stamps on them!

I also finalized Tate’s clothing needs!!

Once we receive some measurements, I will buy him a pair of shoes too!


The Lord has been blessing our efforts to sell some things so that we can gather pennies for the trip and to finish Tate’s adoption!

Bye, bye, old broken tractor!


Anybody need a 2002 Ford conversion van in great condition?

We call her Bessie, and we do not all fit in her anymore!


Sweet Tate, we cannot wait to meet you!!!


Can I hear one more shout? Praise the Lord!! We will be there soon, our sweet little boy!!!

Very soon.

    Can you hear my shout? I am working late on a project, quietly, but inside my heart is shouting “Praise the Lord!” “I can’t wait to meet you Mr. Tate!” “Go Blake!” “Go Grant!” GO GOD!!! His faithfulness never ceases to amaze me and still my heart. Love you all.
