  10. We are so ecstatic for your family! What sweet little children. Cannot wait to hear more about this adventure.
    On a side note, as I was watching this this morning as the kids were eating breakfast, they of course heard the music and came running. They were asking me who this family was, as the younger ones have never met you all. I had the funnest time "introducing" your family to them and they asked all the way to school if they could please see the dancing family video again after school.
    Love the video!
    Miss you guys.

  14. Wow! That was amazingly well done...and the news is awesome, of course. Christi - you look like you could be one of the girls; Jeremy - well, you're still cute, too. The pan of all your family members against the white wall as the song says, "We go on and on and on..." is just perfect!

  24. I'm laughing and crying all at once!!! What an incredible announcement!! I'm so excited for Cali and Conner and for your beautiful family!! Will definitely be praying for Conner's approval and for things to go smoothly and quickly...as well as your housing situation! I'm praying for that millionaire and though I'm not rich would be honored to help with my few dollars as I know every dollar helps.
    That video is the best ever! I pray it goes viral!!! You should send it to the Ellen show!! What an absolutely beautiful family.

  32. So happy to hear and see the official announcement! We LOVE your family and I admire you in so many, many ways!! Now I need to think of a way to make that fundraiser garage sale happen for sure this summer:) Thanks for sharing your news and your life stories on your blog - it's the highlight of my days!

  33. You two never cease to amaze me with the size of your hearts. I look at people who "can" do hard things and then I see you, who CHOOSE to do hard things AND do them with a smile and great faith. I'm so grateful that I am still able to be inspired and blessed by your examples, even if it is over the internet and not in person. Thank you for lifting my heart and inspiring me to greater acts of love.

    ~Prayers for Conner's approval and for a safe trip to get he and Cali and bring them to a celestial home~

    1. Hi Brooke! Thank you! It sounds like you're on an adventure of your own with Dan running against Orrin Hatch! Tell Dan he has my vote!

  34. All of the Wilson kiddos are SO EXCITED about their new cousins!!! I don't think it's a coincidence that Danny and Breanna's baby came on the same day as your announcement to everyone! Three new Nelson children straight from heaven (two via China). I felt the same way seeing Cali and Conner as I did when I saw your announcements of your other precious children waiting for you on the other side of the world. It is SO RIGHT, isn't it? And because it is right, God will provide everything you need to make it work. I am sure of it!!

    We love you guys and wish as always that miles didn't separate us!!

  35. Hi Greens- wow, Jeremy wasn't kidding when he suggested I tune in today for news. This is inspiring and fantastic! Our prayers will be with you through this next phase of your amazing journey. Many thanks for giving us a peek into your remarkable life. There has to be a way to give you all a bigger kitchen table. Hmm... while we think on that one, Marissa tells me she and Xander are conspiring to get our families together. When you're ready for a night off of dinner duty, please let me know and we'll get it on the books. :)

  36. AMAZING!!!! I have never witnessed such a special family. You guys ROCK!!!!

    I feel "crazy" with 4 kiddos and we're adopting our 5th. I have followed your inspirational blog for a while and WOW!!!!

    So happy for you all wondering...how in the world did you have the time and talent to pull together such an amazing VIDEO?!!! Awesome!!!! It speaks volumes to your family, faith and love. Godspeed!!!

    1. Thanks for the kind words! And don't worry-- I felt crazy with even one! It is hard no matter how many children you have. And five is a lot, so you can feel crazy all you want!! God will strengthen you and I've found He's great at compensating for shortcomings. You will do great-- congrats!!

      We did the video mostly in one day. Our only free Saturday! It was so much fun. Jer took the boys to a studio to do the recording and they did it the first time through with just a little practice beforehand-- I'm proud of them! They are a bit mortified that so many people are seeing it though, even though much of it was their idea!

  37. Wow! What a creative and inspiring video! I can feel the love and joy. I am completely in awe to say the least. That will be 10 on earth and two in heaven right? You have earned your spot in heaven that's for sure! I don't know how you guys do it--I can barely keep up with our four ;)! Christi, you look amazing--by the way. Thank you all for making the world a better place!

    Love,

  40. Best announcement ever!! A friend posted it on my facebook page which brought me to your blog. I've added your blog to my blogroll and can't wait to see how the Lord brings these kiddos home!!

    (And I agree with an above commenter--you need a button on your blog so people can donate)

  41. Very excited to see this announcement. I have followed your blog for a couple of years now, and love what God is doing through your family. This song is now stuck in my head...I keep having to come back and listen again!

  42. Wow! Great video! I wonder, what song are you going to do next?

  45. My oldest son said [basically], "Mom, that special girl with no arms can't put them up in the air, but I bet she's putting her spirit arms up!"

    My middle child [boy] said, "Can we watch that again? Cuz it made me feel so good inside...like Jesus inside!"

    Thank you so much; Jeremy & fam, I am so amazed; I struggle at this point with three that have no special needs! We have thought about adopting a Chinese child at some point; we'll have to see what the future brings!

    What a wonderful plug-in to the Spirit you are!

  47. WE LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!! Amazing announcement and the best, most wonderful video. We watched it at breakfast the morning you released it. Our kids loved seeing their friends, who they are convinced are now world-famous! Our kids keep asking to watch it over and over. :-) Conner and Calli are SO blessed to receive such an incredible family. Can't wait to see how this all unfolds over the upcoming months. We are so grateful for our friendship and your great examples. You never cease to amaze us. Much Love, Trip & Jen

  49. As the music instructor for several of your little ones at the elementary, may I say that I completely loved your music video and find you and your children to be a great inspiration!! Your sweet Lexi brought tears to my eyes when she told me that someday Jesus was going to come and fix her eyes! What faith and what joy she has. And Xander with his big heart (he was the one that wanted to share about this video and his "new" siblings), all the way to your wonderful Jesi and Parker and the way they treat your adoptive joys. You can tell that you must be a wonderful, loving, faith filled family! Thanks for sharing your children and your journey.
