Happy Day - Master J

Two years ago today, after inches of documents, fees, waiting, and redoing all the paperwork and traveling we met Master J. We had arrived in the town where he lived after a overnight train ride. We were able to get permission to visit him. Then we went to the orphanage where he was at the time. He was called to the director's office.

He was quiet. I think that might have been the last time that I thought he was quiet. He says that he didn't know what was happening. We talked a bit with a translator and I do remember giving him a matchbox car.

Miss K has been in love with him from the beginning.

I know I have not written much on here about the fact that J was adopted. There is much more to the story and it involves more people and lots of pain. I will say that through all this I know God is sovereign and that he has a plan. Our plans were not his plans. God used us. What happened is not something that most people can understand.

Happy Day - J. We love you and pray that Ephesians 1:16-23 will be seen in your life.

I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might20 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22 And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.


  1. His ways are mysterious. Praise God we are FREE in Christ. :-)

    Two years! Praise the Lord! I recall the difficulties and tears surrounding J's adoption time. I'd love to know the 'full' story but that's none of my business, is it? I'm just thrilled to have found your blog again. I love your writing style and I love looking at your photos of your two children and their antics. Again, all praise to the Lord for two years with your son!
