You guys, so many families traveling for their little ones to share with you! Grab a comfy spot in the shade, get yourself a nice cool drink, turn on the sprinklers for the kids, and don’t forget your box of tissues before you start going through this episode of “What We’re Reading.” So much joy to bring to you this time, pretty much a living example of Psalm 126:3!
And as always, thank you so much for being willing to allow us to link your blogs and stories!
To the mom who doesn’t feel like a mother yet, is a beautiful post in which Katie Davis relates her heart journey as an adoptive mom. She began feeling like a surrogate or babysitter (many of us can relate!) to her adopted daughters and bloomed into becoming their mom, “somewhere along the line after weeks or months or years of choosing this kind of love, I suddenly found myself in the place that I am now where I have no choice, where I could not stop loving that if I tried because they are part of me.”
Ever wonder what happens to orphans who have aged out? Here is a brief story of two young men who were once orphans and benefited from care at International China Concern. Li Shi and Zhou Li’s Hengyang Adventure to serve children much like they once were.
Oh my word, you gotta go watch how Joy in the Waiting creatively announced their being matched to their family. So precious to watch all of their loved ones see the sweet face for the first time!
Abiding in Grace shares Brittany’s Adoption Story, where this special mama shares that “the miracle of adoption is that our faith have become a little bolder, a little stronger and a little more sweet too.”

Confused about the China adoption eligibility guidelines which changed at the beginning of the year? Rainbow Kids does a great job of explaining what it takes to qualify for the China program. And please remember, that even if you do not meet one of the qualifications you can still interview agencies and apply for waivers to be allowed to enter the program.
