Roller Coaster

International adoption is

a real roller coaster ride!  

All I can say right now is that God is doing some amazing work on our hearts, teaching us patience and faith and all sorts of other things that we apparently are 
not yet perfect at!

Please pray for our process to go smoothly in the next few weeks.  Pray for the boys.  I feel like they really need a lot of prayer right now, so if you feel led to pray, pray for the boys.  We are praying that God will guide us step-by-step and that He will be in total control of every moment of this adoption process.  He loves these kids so much more than I ever could (and I love them a crazy lot!) so I totally trust Him with this.  I don't always understand, but I trust Him.  

We bought our tickets today!
We are really going!
In eighteen days we are going to be hurtling though the air across the ocean in order to give some great big hugs that have been a long time coming.  This sweet little pumpkin has been waiting long enough for a mommy and daddy of his own, don't you think?

Praying!! So excited you got a date, and your tickets have been purchased!!

I thought of you all day on the 2nd. We went to Seattle for our fingerprints before our scheduled date and they made us wait almost four hours!! Such agony with three littles, one being sick. But, praise God, they finally did them!!!! Whew!!
