celebrating with friends

i realized today that it has been awhile since i have posted anything. these past few weeks have been a little crazy in our life and we haven't had much time to do anything. but that's not a bad thing. staying busy keeps are minds off of just sitting and waiting.

one of the exciting things we've been able to do in the past few weeks is celebrate with 2 families that have brought home new children. it has been incredible to watch and cheer them on from the sidelines. you've heard us mention our friends the spencers. a few weeks ago they brought their little boy micah home from the ukraine. he is so precious and looks exactly like his family. if you didn't know he was adopted you would never guess. you can read more about their story here:

on the 4th of july we celebrated with our friends the weimers as they came home with 3 ethiopian children. they already have 3 biological children and 3 ethiopian children at home. now they have 9! wow! they are an inspiration. we can't wait to catch up and have our own 9. but we'll start with 1 right now. their family is beautiful and again, it is such a blessing just to be a part if even for a moment. you can read more about their story and see pictures here:

brian and i continue to thank you for your prayers during this time of waiting. we are anxious but we know God has perfect timing. i just have to tell myself that over and over again. sometimes i tell myself that 5 dozen times a day and that's ok. so for now we will just pray and stock up on diapers. feel free to send any diaper coupons our way or anything else baby related.
