3 Years Waiting....

Well we have officially been waiting for 3 years now.  3 long years waiting for our son and brother.  In our hearts we know that God has the perfect son for us his plan is always way better than ours.  Doesn't make the 3 years waiting any easier though.

This process is so different than Daniels.  So many people ask all the time since we have already adopted once shouldn't it be easier.  The reality is things change constantly.  So far just in this process the wait times and processes have changed 2-3 times already.  The changes are in the best interest of the children, which also extends the wait times.  There are many things we have had to do or learn about that are way different than what we did the fir

Looking back I am sure we will see God's movement in this time of waiting and if we don't I know it was all for his glory in some way.  This next year will be the year we get to see who God has picked for our family.  I just know it, for those of you who are ready and are in a season of waiting here are some scriptures and words of wisdom that I am hanging onto:

Colossians 1:17
"He is before all things, and in him all things hold together"

Patience isn't always learned through the accumulation of trials, but through accepting the trials so patience can have its perfect work

John 14:1
Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God: trust in me.

There are many more but today this is what I am hanging onto.  God will bring him home this year!

Goodbye Carmen

With broken hearts we had to say goodbye to our family dog Carmen today.  Even though it was the best for her, it was the hardest thing we have ever had to do.  She was almost 11 years old and a faithful friend.  Mark and I got her about 4 months after we got married so she could keep me company when he worked late.  She was the best companion and the best dog ever.  She will be forever in our hearts and missed so dearly.  Daniel says she is up in Heaven with great grandpa running in the field.  

We love you Carmen and we will miss you.  Enjoy the forever sunshine and bunnies to you can chase until we see you again.
