The Power of Prayer!

We heard a cool saying from Mr. Spock in the new Star Trek movie today...
"Fate never happens when it's most convenient."

A leap of faith...so we have decided to move forward with adopting a daughter from China. Last week on Dallin's birthday, we met with the adoption agency for the first time. While in the office, we were looking for a little special needs girl we had seen a month before. Unfortunately, or fortunately for her, she has found a family to adopt her, but it was not us. I was so sad. As we sat, and visited with these wonderful ladies, there was another little girl who had been on hold for adoption, but was returned to the list. We looked at her picture, she was the first girl we saw and beautiful -We wondered why has no one adopted her?... Her file was forwarded to us at home. While driving home, we could not stop talking about her. As soon as we got home, we researched her file, knew she needed brain surgery, but felt it was right for us to "hold" her for our family. We immediately sent the required letter of intent, and surprised the adoption agency at how quickly we decided. Sunday we fasted and prayed about our decision and for more information, and our prayers have been answered. We feel now more than ever, that she is meant to be a part of our family! Now we hurry up and wait, until all our paperwork is complete, and we get approval. She is not yet two years old, our little Si Si. We will hopefully be traveling to China by the end of this year. Our kids are so excited, and Dallin has offered his bedroom to her. On a side note we got to see the new Star Trek movie before anyone else in the country. Microsoft set that one up for an employee morale event, and Jeff brought me along. The movie is fantastic!! We got as much free candy, pop, and popcorn as we wanted, and filled my purse full !(for the kids of course )
