A little Phase 10 competition

The crew

My kids at their best!

We were so blessed by a visit from the Renfer family. Our families met in Chengdu, China almost 5 years ago when they adopted sweet Kara and we adopted Sophie.  They live in California but were somewhat in the area (Nashville) and we were so excited they were able to detour and see us.  It was such a treat to meet Dean and Kaitlin since they did not travel to China.  Let me tell you this is an extraordinary family that loves the Lord and I feel blessed to call them friends. Their girls are so sweet and polite and very talented! From cooking to sewing, musically inclined, they can do it all!  It was especially a blessing to see sweet Kara transformed from a scared little 6 year old to such a confident beautiful 11 year old.   Thanks for the visit!!!

Oh how wonderful of a reunion I imagine it wass! The girls are all beautiful! You really do share a special bond with those with whom you spend time in China. For us, it was the one family that was with us in Inner Mongolia. They were here spending a few days with us over Labor Day weekend. We hope to make that a yearly event! We sure did enjoy it!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Tina! From our family to yours.....a Merry Christmas a Blessed New Year!
