Hope yours is as happy as ours.

By the is day 100. Please hide all sharp objects and choclate....

She is four.....hear her roar.

We went to the big Cheese house (Chuck as we know him) and had a small party for our princess. We (as planned) were the first customers of the day. A little secret....they test all games before they open....they do this everyday so they can be pretty good at the games....they don't pick up the tickets. So birthday girl got extra tickets to buy the quality merchandise they have there. She was showered with gifts and compliments by her best friends. She wanted us to call her Princess Doctor Claire. She received her first doctor kit and we all checked out ok. She is so happy to be four, those fingers are easier to show than 3.

She grows more loving and gracious everyday. She continues to be delighted by the simplest of things. She is so precious to us and are so thankful everyday that we were given the priviledge of being her family. Happy Birthday Princess Doctor Claire. We love you very much!!!

Another stumbling block

A family traveling in China sent a new picture....isn't he perfect??

If you have been following in the adoption world you know that the fees have been increased. Since this increase is so close to us getting our letter of acceptance, it has kind of taken us off guard.

After much pacing the floor and going to the computer about 5 times and turning around, I have added a chip in button. If our family and friends needed some assistance I would be saddened if they wouldn't ask us for help. So we are giving them an opportunity to help us bring Kevin home.

We are extremely grateful to all of YOU who have prayed with us, cried with us and rejoiced with us over our precious boy. Thank you so much for continuing to do that with us and for us. Our souls are weary from waiting, but truly believe that everything will happen in God's perfect timing.

More pictures of the cheeks.

Hurry up LOA my baby boy needs to come home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Day 85

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
