Hello Handsome Shepherd...

(Jonah and Janice Bush at New Day South)

Hello handsome shepherd
In this season of cheer!
We can't believe God chose us
To be your family so dear.

We've loved you since the day
We got to meet you last year,
And never did we dream 
That God planned to bring you here!

Yes, HERE, to our family,
For you've waited so long,
And now dear Jonah,
Your new name is Cooper Song.

Merry Christmas, sweet Cooper,
You are a surprise gift to us!
We are so thankful to our Father,
For His plans so glorious!

Welcome Ferrill #11, Cooper Song Ferrill residing at New Day South Foster Home!  We will hopefully bring you home sometime in 2013!!!!
And just so you know, we really like even numbers around here.  :)  There *might* be another announcement soon.  :)

Well, NOW I know why God has been nagging at me to stop and read your blog!

God is so great...and knows no limits! Apparently, the Ferrills don't either - Ha! Ha!

So happy to once again be following your family's journey to China! He is just precious! Can't wait to hear if Ferrill #12 will be coming home with him :)

Love to you all and wishing you a very Merry Christmas!


P.S. Steve says I can't read your blog anymore. Puts too many ideas into my head :)
