Small shopping

These are the first things I have let myself by for Kevin. I can't wait to take them to China and watch him play with them. I love their cute little faces. Closer to travel time I think I will buy clothes...he may grow too much over the summer

A couple of Claire stories.....

she is completely in love with Mulan....she asks to watch her constantly. I wish I could get on tape the singing that goes on. Mulan's signature song..."look at me...." Claire sings that with such gusto and emotion it cracks us up. Although she sings "looka at me" FUNNY. She likes to sing when no one is looking...thus the problem of letting everyone see. Take my word for it...too cute

She came home from daycare last week and kept repeating..."I will be nice to my friends. I did say sorry and she felt better" Upon further questioning of the teacher I found that a friend of Claire's had something she wanted and Claire proceeded to knock the child down and get it. So much for my dainty flower. I love these girls with all my heart. It is amazing how families are formed....God truly is good and in control of our wonderful and wacky lives.

We received pre approval today. I couldn't believe it had taken 11 wks.....but it did. I can shop now and really feel safe to say Kevin is really ours!!!!!

Thank you God that you chose to send this precious boy to us.

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
