We got updated pictures and stats for Qian Geng Hui--our Levi.  He's growing and walking and wants to run the report says.  He's ready for life in the Melton household I say.

We are waiting, waiting, waiting for our travel approval.  Anticipating that we will receive word next week (Lord help me, it could be the week after that); and typically families travel 2 weeks after approval.

There is so much to do.

I want to go right now.

Here's my prayer...Lord, help me to do what needs to be done while being present with the children who are here right now.  And if you could somehow give me divine intervention to be able to homeschool, meal plan, pack, baby prep, finish paperwork, cook, sleep, eat well, exercise, etc...that would be amazing.  I am trusting You, my God, to sift through the massive to do's and give me discernment to do the same.  I am trusting You, my God, to care for our little guy until we can get there.  I am trusting You, my God.


  1. Julie - I am so happy for you and the family. It sounds like your journey has been a long and hard one but is looking to be over soon! I wish you all the best in your travels to China to get your little boy. You and your family is an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your struggles and triumph's with us. You do have a way with words.
    Nikki xx

  2. Julie, he's so cute. So happy to hear and see that he is healthy, growing and walking. We can't wait to meet him.

  3. Julie, what colors are you thinking of for Levi's room??

  4. Thank you so much, Nikki! I am envious of your family's fun adventures! Lisa--going bright with blues, greens and red. And a nice splash of black and white to match the glider cushions that i JUST GOT RECOVERED. Ummm...had to make them work. xoxo
