Translation…"Big Brother"

Isaac is the best GeGe (sounds like gu gu-short u sound) in all of China:
He sits silently with him by the window just to be there for him.
He’s always got his eye out for his little brother and feels his grief when he’s sad.
He can make Lucas laugh and smile like nobody else can. 
He carries all 40+ lbs of him on the streets of Hohhot even when he’s visibly tired.
Today they flew kites together in the town square. 
He is getting him to eat---I’ll-be-it—peanut mnm’s, but hey.. 
They drink Coca Cola together -such a sacrifice for a Pepsi lover.
Even though he likes sleeping alone in the other room, Lucas dragged all his stuff over there last night and the two of them had some male bonding.
He asks about his well being constantly with a compassionate heart.
He comes when Lucas calls “gege” for the 15th time......again.

We are blessed to be the parents of such an amazing wonderful teenager.  Seriously, this could be so miserable if he was a self-centered person that cared only about his own well-being.  But, he is not and we are thankful to God for this young man in our lives.


  1. I am so proud of Isaac, I always knew what a kind and gentle soul he has. And as for my new nephew, I see the gleam in his eyes, he is a strong little boy. I love them both so much.

  2. Beautiful - Love transcends all.

  3. Isaac, YOU ROCK!!! (please pass that along, Heidi). I love that you're writing this all down. Will be precious to read through the years :-) Love you all. Yeah God!!!

  4. i want isaac to be my brother.

  5. Isaac truly is the coolest of cool! And hey - now he has a built in adoring fan! We love Isaac. So glad he's blessing and being blessed, healing and being healed! Praise Jesus for His incredible only-Him ways.
