Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri



Before I traveled to China, we were very blessed with an adoption grant from a church in Pennsylvania.  It is amazing how, through circumstances with our trip to China for Maggie, God had people with similar circumstances reach out to us via blog.  This is how we "met" Jenny, another adoptive mom in PA.  After much prayer and sharing, Jenny let us know that we would be receiving a grant for our adoption from their church.  Over time, I've been so blessed to share and become friends with a lady who has a big heart for the orphans.

Earlier this week, we received a small package in the mail with a lap quilt inside.  The note from Jenny shared that prayers were said for Ivy with every knot tied on the quilt.  What a blessing and testimony for Ivy!  Once she understands about God, salvation, she will understand the significance of that small quilt and all those prayers.  I'm thankful for all the people involved, and for those who gave money for funding part of our adoption of Ivy.

Ivy was quite excited about the little quilt.  She has confiscated one of Joy's dolls to lay the quilt over every night on her bed.  (I'll have to ask Grandma to get Ivy a similar doll.).  Ivy even kept the note card from Jenny in her "special" drawer.

What a wonderful thing for Ivy to have, and what hearts the people at this church have for orphans! I think it's just something that God puts on certain people's hearts, and they just follow it! So glad to hear her visits went well - I know about all the cleft surgeries, but these little ones are much tougher than we give them credit for sometimes! Love, Regina
