Like so many who find their adopted children in China and other international locations, this family began with a load of paperwork which led to finding the child they always knew belonged to them. Their hearts told them so. Little Mariah is trusting and willing to be led. Speaking peace to the family throughout the adoption processes were verses in the Bible, including this one:  “Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country”  (Proverbs 25:25).

Finding Mariah, making everything legal, and bring Mariah home was a mission of joy.  They are grateful to be complete as a family, and Mariah will grow up with love and support and opportunity.
