No pics this time

Wanted to let everone know we have survived the flu....went completely through the family.  WOW....it took a lot out of all of us.  But we are all on the mend now and hope to be fully functional by this week.  Sweet Kevin seems to be the only one trying to hang on to a serious cough.

I don't even know where my camera is...so no new pics of my precious ones this time.  They continue to grow and learn something new everyday.  The other day I was treated to a wonderful rendition (by Claire) of "party in the usa" complete with a routine that she learned in p.e.  Who knew you don't just play four square and square dance in p.e.?  She so enjoys performing and dressing in dresses only.  She has really become a dress wearer, just like her sister Kacey.  She has a "walk" perfected for when she feels REALLY like a princess...too cute.  I can't believe the changes I see in her daily.  She wants to grow up but yet can't think about growing up and not living with mom and dad.  I try to assure her it will be ok, but I still see the old demons trying to surface again.  She was asking about heaven the other day, and was really concerned that it would be too different.  I assured her that anything she sees in this house will be in heaven too.  You could SEE the relief in her eyes.  I continue to ask for your prayers that her heart will someday be completely assured that she will never be alone again and she can learn to trust that we will always take care of her.

Kevin is growing by leaps and bounds.  I believe he will be a TALL child.  I believe he will still have a little belly.  HEE HEE  He loves to eat...he loves to try new foods.  Never afraid to "see if I like that too"  This is new to us, as our girls have never been adventurous in the food departments. He wants so badly to be grown as well...so far he doesn't show any signs of being afraid to leave us :)  He is the more adventurous one of the duo.  He will go with Hannah to different places when asked and loves to always go in the car.  He loves us and his sisters.  He still doesn't like to talk about China or his adoption, I know that will come.  We don't push it and we know God will help his heart come to a safe place.

I promise new pics soon....What about this makeover?????  How beautiful is it??  Thanks so much to Becky for rockin' it big time.  Look on my sidebar for a link to look at more of her awesomeness.

Lucky Envelopes

She was so silly the day we were taking red envelopes....

Happy New Year every one.  We are going to party like rabbits

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
