Introducing Katherine Jewel....

Remember Cabbage Patch dolls? Well we added one to our family yesterday:) Hannah "adopted" this cutie when her Grandma gave it to her as a Christmas present. Hannah enjoyed the adoption papers (a few less than we have had to fill out), and she loves the clothes Grandma made for her baby. And Hannah decided to keep the given name....Kafrin Jooooool (Katherine Jewel).

Yesterday was a bit hard for me as I was so hoping we would hear something from our agency by Christmas. As yesterday came and went, the Lord was so sweet to remind me of why we are having the best Christmas ever. Our kids are more excited about Christmas than ever before...which makes our side of the waiting so much easier. Yet I really long to be able to share that fun and love with our future kids. It is so hard not knowing what their life is like right now. We know we are waiting on the Lord's perfect plan....and we all have a God given peace about it (philippians 4:6-7).

And tonight I get to meet Frank (see old post) at a dinner a friend is hosting. I will try to get a picture. Our family is so excited! The kids will get to play Santa, and see the love of Christ in action. A great way to kick off the Christmas "weekend"!!!!

And Katherine Jewel...who could ask for more? Isn't she the cutest?

Merry Christmas Fournet family- as we anticiapate the coming of our King, I pray for your anticipation of your children too!

Can't wait to read about Frank.

Waiting for our children is difficult, especially at Christmas. Your daughter is just beautiful--as is the newest (cabbage patch) addition!

My daughter also got a Cabbage Patch for Christmas (2, actually) and tells everyone how she is an adoptive momma, just like her momma:)
