"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

Needs that we have for bringing the kids home:

Several people have asked us what we are needing when we bring the kids home-so we made up a list-and figured I would just post it here-in case anyone has any of these.  We only have a few short weeks before they are here and are quickly trying to get ready!  (We are still waiting on an embassy date-but are anticipating bringing them home end of July/first part Aug.).  Thank you all for your generosity and love that you have already shown our family!!  We are beyond grateful! (and YES we LOVE hand-me-downs!)*Clothes for new kids-
Socks/underwear
Tennis shoes / Flip Flops
T-shirts (long & short sleeve)

Size: 10 and 12 slim-pants and 10/12 (medium) for shirts, etc.
Shoe: 6 …6-1/2… 7…. 7-1/2...8  (we don’t know so we are probably going to take one of each size and then keep the receipt to return the sizes that don’t fit-or hold on to them for our boys-as they will grow into these sizes).

"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
