Our weekend in Columbia…

Yes, we zipped everyday to the adoption conference in Franklin…but we stayed with our sweet family in Columbia. I’ve been doing online training courses…and needed a little break…a blog that is light and makes me smile… Here is Parker and Laney-Lu playing with cousin Tom. Tom has been Parker’s hero since Parker learned to walk. […]

We are in the same boat. I had a goal of mid-october but things are delayed and so we wait! I am still hoping for end of October but I need to be more realistic. Are you guys hoping for a specific gender? Anyway, good luck – looks like we'll be going through this process together 🙂

Amy,
We didn't make a gender preference…completely open here…so we're guessing we'll get a boy b/c that list is shorter. We are just so excited either way! I'm with you…the sooner the better but I know a lot of waiting with the hoop jumping is ahead!

hey there … we were at the conference as well! We live about 30 miles from Franklin…it was amazing … and I saw you peaking into the rooms snapping pictures 🙂

We adopted our son through AGCI and got home June 19th … not sure if you snapped any pics of the nursery, but Silas was in there … blessings on your journey … believe me, it'll be more than you could ever dream of!

Typical us…

My typical girl… My typical boy… And my typical mess… Yes…that black thing in his hand turned out to be a WORM…a dried up, dead one…YUCK….and yes…it made it’s way into his mouth before I could stop him… Doesn’t taste good does it?! A little protein? No worries…a finger sweep and gagging mommy successfully removed […]

"A day in the life…" and your adopting?!

OK–it’s only 12:30pm…our big Wednesday only half over. So is my cup half full or half empty? (I’ll go ahead and apologize for the long post…it’s been one of those days!) Today was my day to get my adoption physical. We have a precious MD who had volunteered to give Rich and I our physicals […]

That is crazy and encouraging–LOL fun! Sorry to laugh but I know it is all going to be worth the craziness! You are an encouragement to me!

my favorite part: can't you clearly see I need more children;)

Hilarious!

AMEN for days like that- make you appreciate the slightly slower ones 🙂 Oh praise God that you have answered the call of a little one who needs you, of God who wants all of our hearts to be open to Him, and of your willing testimony.

The Young Family - September 30, 2009 - 6:54 pm

Yes…days like this you see it is the Lord carrying you through!!! It WILL all be worth it in the end!
