Le Petit Oiseau is french for Little Bird. We are calling our precious little china doll Little Bird as we wait for our voyage to China to get her. This is our journey from meeting our Petit Oiseau on December 13, 2011 via referral through holding her in our arms and seeing the Lord's hand as we become a family of six. Many who read this blog have prayed for this journey and for that we are eternally grateful.

In just 2 days we will celebrate Ava’s very first gotcha day. I am reliving day by day...moment by moment... this time last year. My emotions felt like they had spun completely out of control and I was holding onto the Savior for the strength to take me to the moment of our meeting.
What an amazing year it has been in so many glorious ways.
Any expectation I had of our Ava Joy has been far exceeded.
The Heavenly Father is in the business of so much more than we can ask or imagine.
The only mystery is why I ever question his mercy, his grace and his miracles.
“And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealing new miracles.”
