Christmas Wish List

What is on your child's list this year?
Most kids want normal things, clothes, electronics, toys....

Not my girl!

She sent me this picture today while she was at school.

Isn't it against the rules to be on personal email at school?


 Here it is, what she wants most

That is not a puppy.

It is a baby goat.

She has not wanted to go see Santa with the little guys this year so I told her if she promised to sit on Santa's lap and tell him she's been a good girl she could have it. (I was not telling the truth.)

She said she would do ANYTHING to have that baby goat.

I have heard that somewhere before....

a horse

a dog

a brother

Audrey Kate if you are reading he is very cute but the answer is

The Big Announcement

To some of you this is not a big announcement.

Many of you were there in that smallish city in China called Langfang
when a 13 year old girl fell in love with a five year old boy.

She was sure he was her brother.

She is a determined little thing that 13 year old girl.

And she was right.

He will be her brother!

Dang Jianfeng....

will soon be Joshua .....Audrey Kate's brother.

And our son!

We are all ready for him to come home.

We are hoping he is home by March.

Stay tuned for more of the story.
