Yep!! One month of waiting under our belt. Not a long time, but since it should only be 4 months of waiting or less, one month down feels pretty good!!!

And, I know a couple of sweet kiddos who are excited to meet their brother. Jake will go with us when we travel so he's pretty excited and Grace talks about her brother in "Opia"!!

Top of the list..... again?

For Grace's adoption, we got on the waitlist on April 7, 2007. Our agency had just recently opened their Ethiopia program, so there really wasn't a waitlist. It seemed like we were the 1st family to request an infant girl. Well, with that news, I "assumed" the call would come any day. 10 weeks later, our wonderful call did come! But, with no one ahead of us on the list, it was a very anxious 10 weeks. Now, fast forward about 2.5 years. We're back on the waitlist, and again it seems like we're starting the wait at the top of "the list"-- this time for a 4 year old boy!! There isn't anyone ahead of us to "stalk" and see how quickly they're moving up the list. So, again... I find myself "assuming" the call is going to come any day. But, this time my mind tells me that it can easily be a 10 week..... or longer wait, but currently, my heart isn't listening to my mind. I need to get a grip! :)

**and please, in no way, take this post as complaining!! I'm thrilled to be "maybe" at the top of the list! I just think the similarities between both adoption processes is funny. Somehow I just thought it would be easier to wait the second time around. HA!!

A few photos of "life" lately.

playdough and coloring. Coloring has taken over life lately. Both kids color all. day. long!!!!!

For a brief moment, I thought Jake was playing with Grace's dollhouse. A few minutes later I notice that his army men had invaded and taken over the dollhouse!

This girl. She would play outside, by herself, all the time if she had her way. She doesn't care if it's cold or raining. She just wants outside. :)

Adoption Theme Song!

Came across this song today: "While I'm Waiting" Speaks to my heart. I have a feeling I'll be listening to it a lot!

The worship band from our church is releasing their first CD this month. Take a listen to one of the songs. It's GOOD. You just might want to get yourself a copy of the CD. :)
