A beautiful family!

Another family made in heaven, finding each other half a world apart!
We are so happy to see Robyn and Paul finally united with their sweet little Avery!

Happy Dance!

We just received word from our adoption agency that China has given us permission to adopt
Suixi Chun Yu! (otherwise known as Jorja) We are so excited to have this paper!
Please pray for Jorja, as she learns she has a forever family just dying to hold her!
I am so excited to be able to send her packages!
Any ideas of what to send a 4 year old are welcome!

Jailyn is growing!

This is Jailyn and her speech therapist

Jailyn had her speech evaluation today! A year ago, she was 17 months old an her speech was evaluated to be that of a 4 month old. Today she is 30 months old and her speech development is that of a 26 month old! WOW!! Her vocabulary is strong but her articulation is what needs more work. We are so proud of the accomplishments she has made!

I've been tagged!

Okay, I have never been tagged before, but I guess I need to list 7 random things that many of you out in blogland may not know about me. The rules are to list the person who sent this to you and leave a comment on their blog so readers can visit yours. Post the rules on your blog. Share 7 facts about yourself. Tag 7 people at the end of your post, linking their blog. Let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1) As my husband says, I rise with the sun and set with the sun! I am an early to bed, early to rise type of person.

2) My favorite vacations have been skiing with my family. The kids love skiing! I would love to take them on a cruise at sometime! If any of you have any ideas of what cruise is good for families feel free to let me know.

3) I accepted Christ as my personal Savior when I was 5 years old. Thank God for His ultimate gift of salvation!

4) I would love to open a hands on children's museum.

5) I often have car rage! Especially in the middle school carpool lines!

6) My dream house would be a large home on 3 or more acres, filled with the kids we have now and more Special needs kids. The 3 acres would have to be some what flat - there would have to be room for a soccer field, that way Bryan would be home more often. :) I hope God leads us to adopt a deaf child some day!

7) I have become a home-body. I love staying home with my family!

I will have to add the people who have I will tag. It took me long enough to come up with these seven things. :)
