Here's the kids and my dad and the 3 baby calves. Jonah liked to round them up and Lydia of course liked to pet them, the first thing she said when we got in the barn was "Well what should we name them?"
Jonah was very proud of his "dissappearing" or actually "reappearing ink". You just gotta love white crayons!
Alexis, McKenna and Lydia pretending they are so cool!
Baby Bjorn and his mommy. Thanks for all of you who prayed for him when we had his surgery. He's doing great!
E-MAIL-I got an e-mail today from our social worker saying she sent our homestudy to us to be signed last week and our backround checks/fingerprints came in today. So that means all we have to do is sign and our stuff is officially off and ready to be looked at by birthmoms. I have to admint when I read the e-mail I got this nervous whoosh go throughout my body. My heart did a little flutter, and my brain said wow this is really going to happen, thank you Jesus and please show us the way.
EVERYTHING ELSE- We have been prayerfully considering asking people to help us with our adoption and it is sort of hard to know exactly what to say. So for once in my life I"m not going to go on and on like I usually do , I'm just going to ask you to pray. Pray:
* that God will continue to prepare our family for the baby He has chosen for us
* that in details of this adoption that are ahead, that we will be able to discern what is best for our family and that we won't lose sight of God being in control
* for our babies birthmom that she will feel surrounded by God's wisdom and love
* that God will provide finanial support we need to make this happen for our family
