We have hit our 7 Months Waitlisted mark!
I am not sure why I am so excited??? I think it is b/c I am seeing other people in our area get their referrals and that makes it all seem so real. It reminds me that we really are going to welcome 2 sweet children into our home...and it will be here before we know it.
Time really does go by so fast.
The current avg. wait is around 15 months.

Feel like God gave this to me awhile ago regarding our adoption:

For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.

I'm Back!

We had a great time visiting my parents in Florida!
Jason and Olivia (my sis) with Will and Wyatt.
Olivia is due to have "Evi" in August!
I can't wait. Reese needs a girl cousin.

Will, Beck and Wyatt.
They are 5 weeks older than Beck. Olivia and I were actually due 3 days apart, but
the twins decided to come early:)
Is this not the biggest grasshopper you have ever seen????
OH MY WORD>>>> seriously.
Nick had to put his phone up to show how huge it was.
This was on my parent's back porch.
We surprised Peyton, Parker and Reese by taking them to Disney.
We waited to tell them that was so much fun.
Yes, I do admit I appear a little "intense"...but that is b/c I was focusing on beating Josh, Kate and Nick's score:) ha. I WON!!! actually...I DOMINATATED is more like it.
82,000 points on the Buzz Lightyear game:)
Reese asked Mary Poppins where the kids were???
She said that they were flying kites with their parents that day.
Reese liked that answer....and for an added bonus...Mary P
promised to tell the kids that Reese said hello:)
I love Mary Poppins!!!!
Reese and her friend Macon

6 Months Waitlisted (almost)...Adoption Update:)

Almost to our 6 month mark...yay! I wanted to write an update on the adoption. At this point, it looks like realistically we might be waiting for another year or so for our referrals. Not sure, could be sooner, could be longer. We are trusting in God's plan and timing. We will keep the mean time...Reese just turned 4 and Beck is as busy as ever!!! Will post pics soon.
