hey mary,
I'm #1 fan of u. Will today fill upon a Beautiful song, Its song that ur Husband wrote One Heartbeat At A Time. Here the lyrics u can look at, i know u see alot but I just want u to know that I love the way you go the extra mile.You're up all night with a screaming baby
You run all day at the speed of life
And every day you feel a little bit less
Like the beautiful woman you are

So you fall into bed when you run out of hours
And you wonder if anything worth doing got done
Oh, maybe you just don't know
Or maybe you've forgotten

You, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch and every smile
Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time

With every "I know you can do it"
Every tear that you kiss away
So many little things that seem to go unnoticed
They're just like the drops of rain over time
They become a river

And you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch and every smile
Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time

You're beautiful
You're beautiful
How you're changing the world
You're changing the world

You, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch and every smile
Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
Oh, I believe that you
You are changing the world
One little heartbeat
At a time

And you're changing the world. that is so u, keep on shining and smiling:) U have an amazing guy in ur life that is amazing to me cause most famous people don't see the need of there wife who is just an ordinary girl like me and u.

Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful,and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.

What an Awesome Journey! It makes me long for the day when it is our turn to travel to bring our little girl home from China. My Husband and I are in the process of adopting a little girl through the China Child of Promise program. I love the pic of Emily holding the baby girl with the cleft palate and it makes me think about that baby girl could be ours.
I am so Thankful for you and your Family for what y'all have done to help people like us bring home our baby girl! Y'all are truly a blessing. We would love to be able to visit Maria's Big House when we are in China to meet our Baby girl!
God Bless you and your Family!

David Trask.....love your heart!!! Mary Beth and Steven are so blessed having you. I wish more than anything that one day I too can travel to see Maria's Big house.


Amazing! What a great opportunity to visit China and MBHOH. If given the opportunity and financial means, I would love to visit both.

What a great surprise you were able to pull off for Emily and Tanner! The pics are some hard-core evidence that you all are having a wonderful time together.

I pray that God will continually touch in the ministry at MBHOH, like He already has.

Prayers for wonderous moments during your visit,

so glad that you are in China. you should definitely visit LuoYang orphanage. I know there are some children who love to learn English from you...
I know there is a girl whose name is Dang Xiao Jing and her english name is Jean...she needs help with her english to pass an english test... she only has one arm...I used to share a room with her when i was at the orphanage... she is a college student...she needs help...
pray for her and help her...thank you...


Oh, How excited I am for you! What a special time to have.

Blessings from the Lord be upon you as you travel.

Standing with you through prayer!



I hope and pray that one day I will get to see MBHOH! It is so amazing. I LOVE hearing about all that God is doing there!!!

Mary Beth...if you get any skinnier we won't be able to find you in a pictures!!!!!!

Thanks for the scoop from MBHOH. Can't wait to hear more.

I was just praying for Emily and tanner about 15 minutes ago - that they would gain a clear picture of what they are supposed to do next year. David, you are a heck of a secret keeper:).
Mary Beth, enjoy every moment with them. We'll be praying for you all. I hope you had a camera to capture the moment that they first saw you.
Rondevu in China - sounds like my kind of life. And you have icing on the cake with seeing Hope unite with her forever family. WOW!

How exciting! For you! For Emily & Tanner! And for the Hall Family! Keeping you all in prayer. Can't wait to read more updates. Thanks for sharing the pictures of everyone! :o)

What a nice surprise for Emily & Tanner! I was just reading on my FB page that you were in your homestate of O H I O, and here you are in China! It must be great to see all of God's special children again. I'd be in Heaven there. And I would probably get very attached to the children there, just as I do to the special children I work with here.
God Bless and enjoy your time with Emily and Tanner.


You are in China ?!? What an awesome surprise! This blesses my soul to the core! We were at the Summit in MN and it was so wonderful to hear you speak! I went over to your FB but you are one popular lady and already have "too many friends" LOL! Your fan page lead me to this update and what a blessing to read you are back and w/ friends who are adopting! My husband and I desire to adopt through the SP. Needs program. It is so encouraging to hear of God's glory and works through MBHOH. I really needed to hear this today! It has made my day :)

What great pictures and a fun surprise. Glad to hear we'll have you back in Nanjing after 2 years. If you get this in time we'd love to have you at the Nanjing Intl. Christian Fellowship for Sunday worship. We meet at the Ramada Hotel at 45 Zhong Shan Bei Lu at 9:30am. There are only about 400 people or so in the group right now, but Jesus is the focus of these people from 30+ nations.

Also, I'd be happy to help you and the Halls any way I can while you are in town if you need anything.

how cool is this! yippee....a surprise for E and T! how sweet that they can be at MBHOH..........and thrilled that you can SEE once again how Maria's Legacy goes on! Hugs some precious babies for the the Gordon Family!

praying on and exciting for you all; thanks for sharing!


I'm disappointed I wasn't told earlier. I wouldn't have ruined the surprise.


That had to be so much fun and a great Mother's Day treat for you! Happy Mother's Day and HI to your sweet daughter and son in law!


Yahoo...that's totally awesome!!! When I saw your tweet that you were headed off to MBHOH I thought "Wow, I'm surprised MB didn't mention that she was going"...not that you ever need to tell your blog friends everything. So glad that you get to spend time with Emily and Tanner and to watch a little girl go into the arms of her forever family! You remain a blessing to so many...praying for you and your safe travels!
