Happy Gotcha Day Johanna!

Our Dear Johanna~

Three years ago today, we were in China in a empty watting room. All of us nervous and tried of waiting ( including Nathaniel age 2 and Amelia age 3 ). Suddenly we heard a little sound from a room in the corner. Then sweet Johanna came out from the room with her teacher. She was just as nervous as we were.  Probably more! And rightly so too! She was to leave all that she had ever known; leave everyone she had ever known and go to live with perfect strangers! Only by God's grace did she get through it. 

Since then we have had many stuggles and tears shead, but the Lord has had His hand in it the whole time. Johanna is a lively happy go-lucky kind of girl. She NEVER complains always has a smile on her face and is willing to help where she can. We thank the Lord for her and His graciousness to bless us with her!

First time seeing the coast!
