No one really thought we'd wait this long. It's been almost 6 months since Rockie, our Dalmatian, died and we are (well, I am) finally ready for a new dog. A friend of Cami's Grammy has the most lovable dog, a Shih Tzu name Gracie. Gracie had 4 puppies on December 29, 2006. On Saturday, we went to visit the puppies...
Cami meets Gracie and checks out the whelping box...
Those little puppies sure do tickle! This is the puppy we selected. She is a female. We are considering the names "Riley" or "Rosie". It's hard to name a puppy that's only a week old!
So, a Chinese child and a Chinese dog... What more could we ask for?
Psalm 139:15-16 "My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
You can not change the world by adopting one child; but for that one child, you can change the world.
"We are obliged to yield many things to the Catholics...
that they possess the Word of God, which we received from them;
Otherwise, we should have known nothing at all about it."

Proverbs 16:9 - In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.
It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish. ~ Mother Teresa
