Playing together










The girls are playing together almost everyday. They have found more things that Claire will and can enjoy and the "velcro baby" is leaving this house more everyday. I hope everyone being here for Thanksgiving doesn't make her come back. Her language is EXPLODING...she now regularly says three word sentenses and will most times calm herself down from imploding. She now is enjoying going to school and loves to tell about her friends and what they do during the day. So with all this progress I am ready to know when our boy is coming home. Funny Taiwan doesn't feel the same way. We have marked the 6 month waiting period. I really feel I can only wait 1 yr sanely...I did it for Claire, I am sure I can do it for Kevin. I know there are so many families waiting twice that long...I can and will be strong if that is what the Lord has in store for us. But I will have to eat a bunch of choclate and drink lots of wine. Now that the holiday season is approaching I guess I could switch to Egg Nog with lots of nog.

Too cute....there is nothing better than sister love! ;)





Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
