If you opened your eyes to the plight of orphans around the world, opened your ears to their hopeless cries, went to an orphanage and felt a pain in the depths of your heart like none you'd ever experienced before......
If every time you picked up one of your children, you thought of the motherless child....If every time you fed your children, you thought of the hungry child....if every time you went to the doctor, you thought of the needs of the "special" child......
What would you do????
We can't get orphans off our minds or out of our hearts. And to be quite honest, we don't want to. The work the Lord has done in our minds and hearts these past couple of years has been amazing--He alone receives the credit, for GREAT things He hath done.
So it is with the greatest JOY that Brent and I would like to announce the newest member of the Bergey Bunch:
She's 18 months old and waiting for us in Hunan, China. Described as "outgoing and playful", she stole our hearts in an instant.
Love those chubby cheeks!
If everything goes smoothly, Brent should be traveling to China sometime this fall, maybe October, to bring our little Lyssie home. Ethan will turn two next month, and Gabbey and Lyssie will both turn two in September.........I'll let you do the math as to how many TWO year olds will be in our home this fall :)
For my dear friends on Rumor Queen, here's our details:

We are reusing our dossier, redoing our HS now, and our I800a doesn't expire until August---hopefully our LOA will come before then!
Join us in celebrating a new flower in our family:)
