The next morning (China time) and evening our time, she calls and tells us that Sara (from Shepherd's Field) would be telling Grey(aka Greyson) about his new family in about an hour. I began to pray for his heart. He has been at SF since he was two months old. How scary for him it must be to think of leaving all that he knows.
An hour later around 10 pm, after everyone had gone to bed, I was in the kitchen and "just happened" to see my phone light up. The screen read "Kailey Franks wants to facetime". So... I answered. Kailey tells me they are getting ready to tell him and we could watch through facetime (similar to skype). I yelled for Greg to get up, ran upstairs to get Brady; however, I wasn't willing to wake up Ruthey. He could just see his Mei Mei asleep. :) THEN... there was his sweet face. Tears began to flow from mine and Greg's eyes (yes, a soldier does cry at times). Brady gets on and says ni-hao to Grey. I show Grey Ruthey's sweet face sleeping soundly. We begin to tell him we love him as Sara translates. Not too many other words came. It was a treasured moment to see this precious child's face and know that before the foundation of world, he was created to be our child. Thank you Jesus for this calling of adoption upon our lives.
Kailey and Grey's first picture together... look at those smiles!!
