Happy Thanksgiving!!

As Eva winds down for the day, playing with David and her tub toys on the bed, we wanted to pause and wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving.  Today has been a very special day filled with the sights, sounds, and smells of Nanchang, China.  It's a Thanksgiving we will never forget.  

After touring a porcelain shop, which Jiangxi Province is famous for, we had the privilege of traveling outside of the city into a nearby village.   Approximately 1,000 people live here and many will commute to Nanchang for work.  We met several people and were struck by their welcoming attitude, inviting us into their homes and sharing some of their life.   I hope, as you consider all that you are thankful for this holiday season, you will remember those in other parts of the world.  No matter what language we speak or place we call home, we are all people, sharing the same basic needs, created in the image of a loving God.  

Much Love,  David, Treva, & Eva Monet


  1. LOVE IT! What a beautiful set of pics - such keepsakes for you all. And I LOVE that bow - how lucky you are that she will let you do it. I think it's the perfect little bit of sass :) Enjoy your cuddling and playing today together - and your snuggling in the nights :)

  3. Oh my word!!!! Mindee just sent your blog to me and I am so happy for all 3 of you! Payton is also from Jiangxi and I am crying reading about your trip that was identical to ours. God is so amazing and knew that Eva Monet was to be yours. Years and years of waiting for the perfect child for you.
