The Year of the Pig

Monday marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Apparently it's a pretty big deal and everything shuts down over there for the celebration. (Sadly, this also includes the offices that I need to be OPEN to process our paperwork so we can travel.....but I digress).
There is an animal attributed to every year and after a little googling I discovered that Lia was born in the year of the pig. Every girl's dream, right?

According to this calendar, I also have an ox, a rabbit, a horse, and a rooster at home. Throw in the real life golden retriever and I think that accurately describes life around here on any given day.

Wouldn't trade it for anything, though.
My ox, rabbit, horse and rooster in action....

"Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love..." Psalm 107:8


  1. Hi Angela! I'm a good friend of Angie's and she was telling me about your adoption process and gave me your blog address. The blog is fantastic! I'll be praying for your family as you prepare for your beautiful little girl!

    Incidentally, I have some homeschooling friends who live outside of the DC area who adopted a daughter from China a few years ago. If you are interested in their contact info, just let me know.

    In Christ,
    Christina Moore

  2. Yeah my little girl is the year of the dog...
