Welcome to my China blog!

Welcome to my blog!

The basic line and purpose of this blog is-

God has laid China on my heart (along with its thousands of orphans) and I'm following HIS red thread there, bit by bit.

An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break. -Chinese legend

And, as for the purpose, this is going to be a China/adoption/fundraising/selling blog. My goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of 2011, or at least by spring of 2012. That way, our family (minus my older brother, who's 21) can go to China and volunteer at an orphanage or children's home for a few weeks. According to our calculations (and reference to our adoption trip to China the previous summer), $10,000 will cover all expenses, such as airline tickets, food, room, etc.

Please check out my other blog, Doodlebug, and my waiting child advocacy blog, Waiting on Their Family. To get to this blog, all you must do is type in http://www.followinggodsredthreadtochina.blogspot.com/
and you're here!

God bless you!
