Announcing LOA

LOA- Letter of Acceptance for Chase!
The Brothers ARE COMING HOME!!

In their honor I wrote this~~~~

Three small children were found alone on the street,
together they were scared, sad, but also so sweet.

Off to an orphanage when no family came forth,
no clues to their pasts or of their births.

Many years went by, they played and they grew,
till one day they got some amazing news.

A family was coming, they wanted to adopt the girl,
somehow they had to accept this joy for her, but it was surreal.

For they were a threesome, so bonded you see, and they did not know of this family.

The pictures the family sent showed many a boy,
oh, could they not want another or two to add to their joy?

The children believed not as they parted their ways,
they wished their sister well on that final last day.

Then as the sister went willingly and kind,
the mother that came was certainly not blind.

She saw on a paper that in finding her there were 3.
She asked who these others were, how could this be?

The new parents were shocked and hurt to the core,
for their girl was not a single but a sibling group of 2 more.

They could not accept that they were the reason,
that these 3 children would be split, for they believed in God's season.

That He had a plan so bigger than them,
so they asked for some help, for all to join in.

Many shared their shock and joy,
but a few said, what will you do with another boy?

Well, love them, we said, for they are her brothers,
all they need now is a father and a mother.

Do they not deserve this as well as she does?
Is this not a plan from the Lord above?

It's bigger than us, for we trust in Him you see,
so off we go to make us an even bigger a family.

We will love them and cherish them as sons of our hearts,
and show them we want them even when they are tart.

All their lives they had each other, they were bonded for sure,
through hardship and good times they could look to each other to endure.

We'll give them that again, to bring them back together,
as they surely thought would not happen ever.

Over a year apart, but no less loved,
our daughter can't wait to every day be able to give her brothers hugs.

To know they are home, safe and secure,
with a mom and dad, and many siblings for sure:)

To our sons in China, Chance and Chase ---- we are coming sons!

And our sincere THANKS to all those people who are helping us to get there......
