I am so thankful that God chose us to be A's family. I don't think that we did anything "special" to be "chosen". . . we were faithful!! Faithful we would somehow make it through the 2 year process of adoption. Faithful we would be able to handle the expenses of adoption. Faithful when we would get so discouraged about the wait. Faithful when referrals would come in and A was not among them that God was with us. Faithful that we could welcome this child into our home and family and love her like we love our other children. Faithful that no matter what this child had been through in her first 3 1/2 years of life God would help her heal.
We have been so blessed by this one small child.

A fit right in with our family from the start. She adapted very quickly. We did battle the occasional night terror throughout the first year together, but now those are no longer an issue.
Our first day with our little Wu, Miao Qiu, now A. She was so scared and unsure of what was going on. It broke my heart to see this beautiful child that God set aside just for us be so scared.
