Oh, yes, there is more!

While I was meeting with Shane last week, he said, "Hey, I am going to Singapore right after China, why don't you come with me there too?" I laughed and told him there was no way I could do both.  After our meeting, I came home and got in contact with my trusty travel guy.  I gave him the dates and cities, and for kicks, I asked him how much extra it would cost to add a stopover in Singapore.

Knowing that it would be outrageous, I really didn't give it much thought. A little bit later, my travel guy calls to tell me that adding in Singapore added $50 to the ticket! Isn't that crazy? So I talk to Brad and he said go for it! YAY! So, I am going to Singapore too!

Here is where it gets funny - I have a friend that is from Singapore. I emailed her asking her some basic questions and told her about the church where my cousin was speaking.  She replied saying that the pastor of that church and his wife are good friends of hers! LOLLL! She said there are approximately 4 million people in Singapore and we will be meeting her friends? SO funny!

At first I wanted to take Jackson with me. He seemed really excited, but when I told him that we would be gone 2 weeks, he said he didn't want to go. He is such a home body. So I asked Julianna - of course she was secretly hoping Jackson would back out so she could go. LOL. I really thought about going alone, but Shane will be busy, and I really wanted someone to hang out with. So, once again, my baby girl and me are headed to China!

This is such an opportunity, and I am so excited. I really can't wait to see how God is going to work! I am looking forward to being in China again - without the stress or pressure of the adoption. I am looking forward to seeing new places. And I can't wait to spend so much time with my sweet family!

This is just awesome, Michelle. It's so hard to understand God's ways sometimes, and we often wonder if we are on the right path or if we are taking the lead on our own... but it is very clear that He is in control He and that He is the One who ordained this special trip for you. And YAY!! ~ only $50 to go to Singapore, too... I've heard wonderful things about how truly beautiful it is there. What fun! Can't wait to follow along on your adventures and see what God has up His sleeve!! ;)

Blessings & Hugs,
~ Tanya

So I didn't know you were back on FB...or did you never leave? Maybe I was unfriended! Uh oh. :( So exciting to see how God is working all things out and how He will use you for something even bigger! Look me up on FB if I can be your friend again! HA!!

Such a blessing Michelle! I am so glad that God has led you to this place and confirmed through your husband that He has something so much bigger for you and your entire family! What an answer to prayer. I can even hear your excitement in your post! It's so cool to know that you are on God's path--the very special one He's been preparing you for all along. Like Tanya, I cannot wait to travel along with you through your posts!
