Faith-

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1

Sometimes I may get a little down because of the adoption taking so long. I mean- I want to be a Mommy now! I have his room all ready and now it has to sit empty for possibly 2 years. I guess that’s our fault because we rushed to get it done. But it’s so exciting to get everything ready. The past few days I have been down and out because of the wait time being extended. My husband keeps reminding me to keep my faith. It’s so hard to do at times. Then I have my friend Renee who also reminded me keeping her faith is what brought her family together. She is now blessed with Daniel and feels that he was chosen for their family. I do have so many things to look forward to. Soon we will have another family member added to our home. Hannah will have a little brother and Eddie and I will have a son. That is something to look forward to. So I choose to keep my faith and know that God has already chosen our little man for our family.

Another great thing is our agency received 5 referrals this past week. That is great news! With each referral we are one step closer and more families are being brought together.
What a sweet face!!!

The Wedding


My Family

Mom & Dad


This weekend my brother got married. The wedding was beautiful and the weather was great. Here our a few pictures from the wedding. The girls did an amazing job in the wedding. Not much is happening with the adoption. Our wait time may be extended to 18-24 months. All we can do is pray and keep faith that all things will happen in God’s timing. It’s hard at times but Eddie keeps reminding me to keep my faith strong. Without faith we have nothing. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Labor Day Weekend!!!

This past weekend we took the girls on a little trip to Chattanooga, TN. We went to Ruby Falls, Rock City and to the IMax Theater. I remember going to Ruby Falls and Rock City as a child but it was more enjoyable i think as an adult.

Last Thursday night we went to visit our friends Renee and Kyle. They came back this summer with their son Daniel from Vietnam. Daniel just turned 2 on August 20th. He is such a sweet child and very bright. It was good to finally get to meet this little fellow. Renee and Kyle showed us pictures from their time in Vietnam and gave us some great tips. Check out their blog to see pictures of their family.
