More Referrals!!!

We are excited and happy for the families who received their referrals yesterday. Our agency received 3 referrals. One infant girl 7 1/2 months, a 2 month old girl and a 2 month old boy. So we have moved up 3 more spots--Our new number is 133!!!! Sara said there are more referrals that will be taken in for their medicals soon. So we may get more referrals pretty soon.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and 4th of July and be safe!!!!!!!!!!

Our Newest Family Member

I wanted to add a cute picture of Hannah and our new kitten. Hannah named her Sadie and she loves to cuddle and hold her. We are constantly telling Hannah that she needs to let Sadie run and play. You can see that they are buddies.
I also called Sara (our SW) because I wanted to confirm my calculations and I was right. We are #136 on the waiting list and # 83 for a boy. It seems it's moving along pretty fast. Quicker than I thought. We are suppose to get more referrals (i think) by the end of this week.

Ask, Seek, Knock

I wanted to share one of my favorite verses from the Bible. I prayed for our child and with God all things are possible. I prayed and asked God to lead us in the right direction. He led us to adopting our child from Vietnam. I feel that we are blessed to have this opportunity and I think God everyday.

Matthew 7
Verse 7 & 8
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who ask receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

Father's Day

Eddie had a great Father's Day yesterday. Hannah made her daddy a picture frame. She painted the frame and also added some stickers. You can see she also wrote her name. Eddie is a great father to Hannah. We cannot wait until the day he becomes a father to our son.

John's Bedding for his Crib

We have the bedding for John's room. I wanted to post a picture of what it looks like. Now we need to paint and get his furniture. We can't wait to get to get his room completed. They have so many to choose from and it was hard to decide.

We are moving on up!!!

Almost every other week we get email updates from our social worker Sara. She sends everyone emails letting them know where they are on the waiting list and of any new referrals or waiting children. Today we find out they we are # 140 on the list. We can't believe that we moved up 13 spots in less than a month.

Our friends Renee and Kyle are leaving for Vietnam today. They are so excited and anxious to finally see their son in person. Hopefully they will keep updating their blog. We look at it everyday in excitement for them because we know we will be there soon. They have been really helpful with information regarding the process. We hope to be able to learn from them the do's and don't of the process and the Country. The blogs and journey's have been very helpful. I find myself looking at them daily, just waiting for the day that we will get to meet our son.
