Treasured Video

video
We were sent this video of our precious
daughter a year ago. She is saying her
name Hong, Haoyun and that she wishes
to have a family.
Oh my sweet baby girl, you do have a family!!!
We are coming soon!

There is one who loves you even more.
Who heard your cries. He knows your
heart of sadness and desire for a home.
My prayer has been you would feel His
loving presence as He gathers you in
His loving arms and carries you close
to His heart.


When Love Takes You In

I know you've heard the stories
But they all sound too good to be true
You've heard about a place called home
But there doesn't seem to be one for you
So one more night you cry yourself to sleep
And drift off to a distant dream

Where love takes you in and everything
changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you
belong here
The loneliness ends and a new life begins
When love takes you in

And some where while your sleeping
Someone else is dreaming too
Counting down the days until
They hold you close and say I love you
And like rain that falls into the sea
In a moment what has been is lost in
What will be

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with the beat of a heart
And this love will never let you go
There is nothing that could ever cause
This love to lose its hold

When love takes you in everything changes
A miracle starts with a beat of a heart
When love takes you home and says you
Belong here the loneliness ends
And a new life begins when love takes you in
It takes you in for good
When love takes you in

  1. What a blessing to have these pictures and videos of her while you wait. I know you can't get to her quick enough and then she will know she has her family-forever!
