Still Waiting

We received new pictures of Alyssa on Friday. They are the most adorable pictures! It was like Christmas morning when I opened the e-mail. She is growing way to fast and we are missing it :( We are still waiting on one last approval that will make her our legal relative and allow them to get her visa and passport. As soon as all that happens we get to go get our little girl!!! Soon I hope!!
My youngest son had a birthday on Friday. He turned 6, he is growing up way to fast too!!! We took him and a friend to Incredible Pizza, they had a blast! I had fun too. They have a race car game where you race against each other and my 14 year old thought he could beat me. HaHaHa! I left him in the dust!!!It was a great day all around!
To cap off the week we had our VBS program at church Saturday night. I was amazed at all the parents that were there. It was GREAT!!! The kids sang songs with motions that they had learned the past 5 days. It was amazing to see the little ones singing and doing the motions to these songs. I don't know about anybody else but my 6 year old really enjoyed VBS!! I just want to say THANK YOU to EVERYONE who help in EVERY WAY with VBS!!!!

Another Week

First of all I want to say CONGRATS to the Mueller's!!! I am soooo excited for them!!!
And yes it is time for VBS!! My 5 year old is so excited about it he was ready to go at 7:00A.M. this morning. My 14 year old is helping with the younger kids crafts. He takes after his mom, I am helping with the older kids crafts. I am really not sure exactly what my husband is doing but I am positive that A or L will find a place for him!!!
A good friend of mine gave me a book for my birthday. It is called New Day New You 366 Devotions for Enjoying Everyday Life. It is AWESOME!!! Thank You!!!!!

I hope everyone has a GREAT week!!!

NO Finger Pointing!

I have been doing a lot of thinking today about adoption and adoption agencies. I have come to the conclusion that we as adopting parents do a host of finger pointing. When something goes wrong or doesn't happen how or when we think it should we are quick to point the finger of blame at our adoption agency or our home study agency. We really need to stop and think about this before we do! Adoption is a good verses evil. The Lord wants us to adopt, but the devil wants us to leave the children right where they are! Yet in the midst of all the paperwork and home studies we don't stop and think that what we really need to be doing is not point the finger but to pray to the Lord and to tell the devil to leave us alone and get out of our adoption. I know first hand that things don't always go how you think they should or when you think they should. That is the time we should remember as much as God wants us doing this the devil wants us to quit even more! I would hate to think that my dislike of an agency would detour someone else from using them. Especially when that agency is probably not to blame for what happened the devil is!
Just a little food for thought.


I hope everyone had a blessed 4th of July! We went to my moms in Fairview on the 3rd and watched fireworks then had my mom over on the 4th and did fireworks at home. From our driveway we also watched fireworks in Ringwood and Helena. It was GREAT!!
Last night we had our bible study and the fellowship was awesome! We had good food too!!! A little something for one of my dearest friends: Don't let it get you down the devil is trying to discourage you! He wants you to quit, DON'T! It will come all in God's time!!! We love you all!!!
I hope everyone has an awesome rest of the summer. Spend it wisely as school starts in a little over a month!!!
