Gotcha Josie Wei!!

The past few days have been a whirlwind.  I will keep this post short and sweet as I have tried to blog several times and each time I have lost everything.  
Monday, we met our sweet Zhao Wei Miao… aka Josephine Wei Franks.  We call her Josie.  God blessed us BIG with this precious little treasure.  We are all in love…. yes… even her big brother Brady.  They have already made such a neat connection.  She adores him.  
Tuesday, March 11th, was our official "gotcha" adoption day.  She was so excited!  It was really cool to see her jump up and down when our Lifeline guide told her all that was happening.  Ruthey and Grey had no idea what was really going on when we had gotcha day with them, but Josie is old enough to understand.  Such joy!!  She couldn't wait to get back to hotel and call her foster parents, foster sister, English teacher and Chinese teacher.  We had no idea what she was saying but her facial expressions and the jubilation in her voice told us she was happy.  I will admit, I was a little nervous about her calling, but it was the sweetest moment.  Greg and I both felt her calling them was an important part of the day.  
Today, we visit the orphanage.  This is sometimes very hard.  Pray for all of us.  


  1. Just beautiful! God is so good and we are so excited for you all. We are praying! God bless you all with His peace today.
