"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

Happy Valentines Day-I woke up to a sweet surprise!

Woke up this morning to my kids EACH giving me small vases of carnations.....and get this-Seble's as you can see below was in one of her bottles! :-) Adam thought I would get a laugh out of that and I did! It was so cute and then we put them all together and had a beautiful arrangement of carnations for our table!
But the cutest gift and the sweetest I have to say was a home made card that Cassidy made for me-you can see it below but when I read it-I got teary eyed! Never question whether or not you should adopt or whether or not your kids will be on board with you-it all works out! They love Seble dearly-each one and they are all bonding very well with her. Here is what the card said:
Dear Mother, You are the best mother in the world! You can cook the best dinner! You have let me dress Seble and let me feed her. Ad the most important thing is that you let us adopt when I really needed a sister. Thank you!! Love Cassidy





























We were excited to get in the mail today-Seble's US Citizenship certificate-we are still going to get her an official US birth certificate, but it was nice to see in writing that she IS a citizen! She is doing well, bonding well and is a pretty happy baby-we are all having a lot of fun with her! She is just about to crawl forward, but scoots all over the room backwards on her tummy. She is babbling more "ba ba" "da da" and is sleeping pretty well-wakes 1-2 times a night. Unless it is "daddy's night" then she usually sleeps 8 hours straight! HaHa Her hair is coming in so fast-and she had a clear physical and labs from the doctors-so she is doing great!!!

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
