At a loss for words

I know I haven't been a very good blogger lately. There has been such little activity for us with the adoption, but I thought I'd at least post where we are UNOFFICIALLY at on the waiting list. I checked it today and it said 18! Wow- things have been moving quickly during the last few weeks. Honestly, it gets scarier as we get closer.

I had a nice talk with a friend today, and in my speaking out loud, I realized how great our kids are and what great helpers they will be. When the first 3 were little, it was hard. Hard to get out of the house, hard to prepare meals, hard to have any quiet in the house, hard to have any awake/alone time with Jon, just plain hard..... some days. I know this will be hard too, but I have helpers now! Helpers with keeping the little guys entertained, getting them a snack, reading them books, picking out clothes, showing them that brushing teeth is fun!

Please continue to pray for us as we wait and for our little boys - that God is preparing their hearts to join us soon!


  1. yes, there's been A LOT of movement!!!! glad we could help you move a spot :-) the waiting is SO hard... can't wait to celebrate with you!

  2. YEAH!!! We just can't wait to shout out in excitement with you when you get to see their sweet little faces. You do have WONDERFUL children who will be GREAT helpers. I am so thankful for my 3 oldest. Hope to see you soon.

  3. I like what you wrote about praying that God is preparing their hearts to join you. My daily prayer for our little guy (8 years old, approximately, in Africa) is that God will prepare his heart for us and ours for him.

    I hope your timetable starts to fly now :-)
