Happy Early Thanksgiving

Just a post to say that I got some new pictures of little man and he is not going to be little man by the time we get there. He is growing like a weed. He has these chubby cheeks that you just want to pinch. I can tell that he must be getting okay care because he has a smile in like half of the many pictures I received. He is just adorable and it makes me miss him so much especially considering he turned 7 months old today. I owe J big time for getting these to me today of all days. We are hoping to get some kind of an update maybe by the end of this week as to what is going on with getting our babies home. We need to pray hard that this wait comes to an end very soon!
Happy Early Thanksgiving to all of you guys out there. I have to work Thursday night so you guys out there enjoy the day and we have to remember to be thankful for what we have right now and also for what we have waiting for us in a country far far away.

Kids Are So Receptive

I did not realize how receptive my daughter was to things going on around her. I had been on a major downer lately regarding not bringing Little Man home and not having any clue when with all of the problems in his country. I have tried and thought I was being successful in maintaining a pretty positive disposition around Lindze. I actually try to save the tears for bedtime or just when she is not around. Tonight at bedtime her prayer brought me to tears. She prayed for her baby brother to be home soon. She also prayed for her mommy to not be so sad all of the time and that "God please bring brother home for Christmas so mommy would be happy and not cry". It took everything I had to hold it together while I was putting her to bed. I guess I am not doing a good job of maintaining that happy disposition I was talking about if my almost 5 year old is picking up on how sad I have been. I will have to work a little harder on hiding my feelings. I don't know what I would do right now if I did not have Lindze. She is the light of my life.
Nothing new on the adoption front. Still waiting for some people in a certain country to grow a heart and sign some letters for all of us waiting. Keep the prayers coming!
