our overcomer!

Being with James is like unwrapping a present a thousand times each day.  Everything is new and beautiful and wonderful and shocking and amazing and inspirational and overwhelming.  He's just incredible.

God knew what He was doing when He created James.  He may have created him with physical limitations, but He in His perfect mercy and all-knowing nature knew that James would have to overcome a lot so He created James with an amazing spirit.  He is determined, open to new things, driven, persistent, and patient with himself.  And this is just the beginning of our unwrapping what's inside this precious child who will surely teach us a lot about the human spirit and what's really important in life.

Here are a couple of videos that were so fun to capture.

In a couple of hours, we're headed back to the meeting room in the hotel where we first met James.  A police officer (yikes!) will bring James' passport.  We'll verify that it's accurate and then be good-to-go. We'll then head to the airport and catch our flight this evening to Guangzhou.  

I doubt I'll have another chance to post today, so we'll see you in Guangzhou!  


  1. Oh my goodness! He has the patience of a saint. He could teach me a thing or two :) Those videos really speak volumes and verify what a sweet, caring, determined, and bright boy he is. Can't wait to meet him.

  2. My mornings of the late: commute to work, get hot tea, hurry into office to check for your latest blog post, heart swells and tears flow...thank you for the daily gift. Thank you for sharing. Love to each of you!
