Journey to China

This blog documents the Spitlers' progress towards the adoption of Xia Ping He (Noah Spitler) from the PR China. It also documents Noah's medical process in pursuit of a total repair to his CHD (congenital heart defect).

It's been one month

Well, it has been exactly one month since our dossier was logged into the CCAA. I cannot believe that much time has already passed. It gives me hope that the rest will go quickly too. We still have not received any updated information about Noah's medical condition so we just have to keep on praying. I did find out from our agency that our adoption process has not been affected by this news and everything is still proceeding like it should. We, of course,would still love it if everything would go quicker than normal. We will keep praying for that also.

On the homefront we have had a sick child here also. Olivia has had the stomach bug for the last two days. She seemed better and I was prepared to send her back to school this morning but the "bug" symptoms returned before we could even make it to the bathroom. Luckily she has had little to no fever so that hasn't been an issue at all. I think she will be back to her normal self by the end of the weekend. Madison is having a fun Sedar dinner with her classmates today in preparation for Easter. She was really looking forward to it and I know she will have a great time. That's all I have for now. I will keep you posted about any changes.

Thanks for the prayers everyone.I know our Lord is in control and He always knows what is best for us. God's blessings, Robin

Praying for Noah

Thanks to all of you who are praying for Noah. We now ask for a specific prayer for him. We just learned from our adoption agency that Noah is sick. There is a lot of uncertainty as to exactly what all of the issues are. Please pray for his healing. We want him to get better and for this medical problem not to hinder our trip to get him. Again, thank you for all your prayers and we will keep you informed of any new developments.

More Paperwork :)

We received an email from our agency and we were able to complete some additional paperwork. It has everything to do with immigration and we are happy that it didn't take long to finish. We will hang onto it until we receive our LOA (Letter of Approval) from the CCAA. We will let you all know when it arrives.
We ask all of our good friends to continue to pray for our family. We have had a lot going on in the past two weeks and we need for you all to pray that we will always seek to be led by the Lord. We know He is in control and we want to be in His will. Please pray for Noah also. It is so important for him to stay healthy so that his heart will be able to continue to work at its best. I also ask if you can pray for his spiritual heart. We are already praying for his heart to be receptive to the God of the Universe who loves him so much. Thank you so much for praying us through this process and we continue to look forward to the times when we can share new pictures and information with you all. God's blessings!
