Ni Hao Y'all

This is my first time participating in Sunday Snapshot, so if it is not "right", you'll have to forgive me! I am not good at following directions. Stefanie, over at
NiHao Y'all started Sunday Snapshot and I think it is the coolest idea! I have had such a great time reading everyone's SS posts, I had to join in! So here goes...

This is my sweet girl, Julianna.

Julianna is the most kind hearted 4 year old I have ever met. She genuinely cares for other people. When I say those things, I don't just mean she is a sweet kid. It goes way beyond that. She has a love for people. For reasons unknown to me, she seems drawn to Chinese people. Honestly, I think Julianna is part of the reason we are bringing her sister home from China. Since she was 2 years old, she has asked for a "Chinese sister". She has a heart for orphans. I look so forward to seeing what Jesus has in store for her. I have a hunch she will do big things for Him. I would not be surprised in the slightest if she grew up and became a missionary. In CHINA, no doubt. I have never seen a such little girl so fascinated by a culture and its people.

Juju is so expressive. She surprises me everyday with her thoughts and her ideas. She has her own sense of fashion and she is very confident in her choices (much to her daddy's delight, haha!). She insists on wearing tights and tutu's every. single. day. She is an absolute joy (though her brothers may disagree)!

I am so thankful for this little one. She is a true light in my life. I look so forward to watching her grow up!

Oh she's adorably sweet! And I am sure God will have great things for her future. It sounds like he's already using her :-)
And her incredible sense of style. Wow. I know a certain 4 yr. old BOY who likes cowboy boots and shorts. Yes, worn. together. They would make such a fine pair in a photo. HA!
Great Sunday Snapshot.

What a sweet girl. She looks so much like you and you can tell that she's just a kind, sweet soul. ♥

What a cutie pie!! Love to hear about Julianna's big heart for orphans, specifically kiddos from China! What a blessing that would be if she already knew her calling from the Lord :)
Thanks for joining in this week! Sorry I linked your post late, I think when I first checked in, you didn't have it up yet. You're up now!

I love your daughter's heart! so Sweet!

We are just getting ready to start the process of adopting again from Russia for our second child. I love hearing about a child that comes home to their forever families.

Blessings to you,
