Surprise on the porch!



Lindsey and I came home today feeling exhausted and emotionally worn down. We got to our front porch and what did we find? A package waiting for us from our awesome friends Shane and Mitzi McBride! They sent us a "favorite things" box loaded with toys and puppets and books! It was so special and just meant the world to us! Cool how God knows right when you need encouragement and a reminder that you're not alone!
Thanks guys!

God does seem to know these things pretty well. What a ray of sunshine that must have been...you need those when you are adopting. :)

Just wanted you guys to know that I am thinking of you. I will pray for God to strengthen your hearts while you are with your daughter. What a joy it will be to spend some time with her! May this be the LAST time you will ever have to leave her. That is exciting to think about! There is MUCH good news coming out of PGN right now. I know of several cases that have moved lightening fast and I pray yours will be one of them. I'm also hoping ours is too! It would be great to be in Guat together for our pick up trips!
