Geoff Moore is on tour with Steven. I didn't realize until last night that Geoff and his wife have also adopted from China. They have two girls. It's so beautiful to see both these men on stage talking about adoption and how much they love their family and their wife's. I'm pretty sure a lot of men left there vowing to be better fathers and husbands after these two poured out their hearts about how God weaved their families together. The tour is partnered up with Compassion Canada and after Geoff spoke about his experience in Haiti the Compassion team handed out packets of sponsor children to those who wanted one. I was overwhelmed with how many people put their hands up to receive them! We've had our sponsor child from Compassion Canada for 4 years now and it's been such a joy to see and hear how well he is doing!
While I'm writing I'm trying to download the Cinderella song video that I took last night but I'm not convinced it's going to work. I'm just trying to use the Blogger video up loader. If it doesn't work no biggy. Shane was in tears listening to that one. My darling husband has such a sweet spirit ;O).
Went shopping before the concert and found this little treasure!! I needed a new belt buckle and I thought I would see if they had the China flag. I was so excited they had one!!! If they didn't I would have got the Calgary Flames one (hockey). I did a little Easter shopping for Sugar Pie, Hunny Bunch and Miss K as well.
I don't know what happened to me but at one time I hated purple! Sugar Pie looks so beautiful in purple I think it's wearing off on me! I now have a purple, Bible, phone, Kindle case, laptop case and now this! I couldn't resist getting a Steven Curtis Chapman t-shirt. I also picked up his wife's (Mary Beth Chapman) book "Choosing to See". Looking forward to reading how God is still helping them through their loss. Steven thanked the audience multiple times for our prayer coverage. I remember doing a blog post of them after their tragedy struck. Hard to believe it happened 3 years ago...the pain still feels so raw.
Sugar Pie got along great at her grandparents for the night. It was her very first sleep over! Nanny said she did wake up crying but she was able to comfort her. It was nice to have a little get away with my husband, we needed that time together without the worry of a curfew. :o)
Well I've been trying to upload my little video for almost an hour now and it's still trying so I don't think it's going to work.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Oh! Got an email from our agency again! I asked when our LID was and she said March 1st! I know it really doesn't matter since we already have our referral for our son but I like to document all these little milestones. ;O)
