Fun while waiting

We are about 5 weeks in the official waiting period...having so much fun with these kiddos and prayerfully and excitedly waiting to celebrate life with our new kiddos soon (hopefully very soon)

This is our sweet ballerina above....playing in a mud puddle one day with her brother and friends. Caleb stayed clean:)

Hannah got some time recently with our newest family member...she LOVES babies!!!

Hannah also loves animals...anything she can be a "Mommy" for.

We also went to another pumpkin patch...I love fall! It was a beautiful sunny cool day!!

We were so thankful today for the pretty weather, the fun animals, time with friends, and each other. God has been so good to us...."Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." Eph 5:19-20 Even more we are thankful for the GIFT that surpasses pretty days and awesome kids.... "And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!" 2 Cor 14ish

Looks like you had fun!! Are you guys waiting for siblings? Sometimes I can't believe we have already flown through almost 9 weeks and then other times it feels long...I'm sure you can relate! It helps to focus on the precious ones right in front of us, don't you think? Blessings to you guys!

I met a friend of yours tonight at our school's open house...she recently adopted from China and when she found out that we were adopting from Ethiopia she immediately mentioned your name. What a small the pics!
