We Have Another Match!!

Sweet, sweet Serena has a forever family!!

Though we've known her day was soon approaching, she hadn't a clue how her life was about to change in just a few moments! We were so happy to share the good news with her that she now has an adoptive family waiting for her in the US.

Each time we gather all the Forever Home family together for a meeting or announcement, the kids know something big is about to happen! TODAY, I told Serena, is a very BIG and IMPORTANT day for you!! She gets all giddy and listens intently to the next part--the reason why! When we tell her she has an adoptive family and show her their pictures, she is all smiles!

It's a lot to take in in just a few short minutes!! We are all so very happy for her--something that we've been believing for her since her arrival. She is happy as well--the look on her face is unmistakable evidence of that! That and the fact that she went from person to person sharing the good news with everyone she met!

Serena wants to pose for a picture with her foster dad afterwards.

This picture was taken just before we shared the good news with her. Serena is such a sweet girl and her new family will be SOOO blessed by her!! We will certainly miss her and could never forget the impact she has had on our family. Since she is not going to be leaving us for about 6-9 months, we still have plenty of time to love on her before she leaves!!


  1. I am so excited for this beautiful child!!!!! Serena will be coming to my hometown and be in our Chinese playgroup!

  2. Congratulations Serena on your new family!! We are so happy for you.

  4. Praise God! I've been praying for Serena since she joined your foster family!
