Sunday Snapshot: Presents!

It's always so much fun to send presents to my sponsor children. I LOVE going shopping and picking out cute little things that will make them happy! And for a minute I can pretend they are actually my kids. :) The most amazing part of sending things to them, is when I get to see the pictures. It's so great to see them smiling and possibly even wearing or playing with something I sent them. They are such a blessing in my life! Enjoy the pictures!

Luke in China:

Wow, that smile! Love it!

Aww! I <3 u Luke!!


Stella in Uganda:

So much joy in her face! 

What I sent her

My first letter from Stella! Looks like she is very good a drawing!

Sunday Snapshot: Friends

Kyla and William grew up together in China. They are both from Shepherd's Field Children's Village and they have been very close through the years. Soon after I started sponsoring William I realized he and Kyla were always together. :)

Kyla went home to Canada last year, and William went home to Wisconsin about 5 months ago. Well, last month Kyla and her family went to Wisconsin and got to visit with William and his family!

Having fun on the trampoline

Putting a puzzle together

Eating popsicles with Kyla's big brother

I was so excited to hear they were finally able to see each other again after being apart for a year! I heard their meeting went well and they had a lot of fun together. It is so amazing that these two precious children from China will grow up not too far from each other and hopefully keep in touch over the years.  


I pray that Kyla and Will grow into incredible young people with a love for the Lord. And I can't wait to see what God has in store for both of them!

There Is Always A Song




I don't know how to breathe
I don't know how to leave You
I don't know what to say
And who am I to say it anyway?

But there is always a song
And I'll try to sing along over You
I can hear it being sung
All of Heaven sings along over You

I hardly know Your name
I didn't come to save You
Your smile just broke my heart
Now You're in my heart
I know You'll never leave me

But there is always a song
And I'll try to sing along over You
I can hear it being sung
All of Heaven sings along over You

But there is always a song
And I'll try to sing along over You

Sing, sing like you've never sung
Sing for your joy to come
Sing, sing like you've never sung
Sing of my joy to come

There is always a song
And I'll try to sing along over You
I can hear it being sung
All of Heaven sings along over You

There is always a song
And I'll try to sing along over You
There is always a song
And I'll try to sing along over You
Always for You

Adoption Quote



“My friends, adoption is redemption. It’s costly, exhausting, expensive, and outrageous. Buying back lives costs so much. When God set out to redeem us, it killed Him.” -- Derek Loux
