Fun, fun & more fun!!!

What loving big brother!! He specifically pulled his chair over and put Hope's head in his lap and was rubbing her face. It was so sweet!!!!

Great friends!! Look out here comes trouble.

Mia at Dance Theater!

Mia loved the water. I think she only got out once and that was to eat.

Noah on the otherhand only liked the water if I was holding him. He was just as happy playing up in the rocks.

Hope was just like Noah. A little intimidated by the Ocean, but looked awfully pretty in her new bathing suit!!

Our beautiful babies!!

Being resourceful! Yes that is plastic forks they are using to play in the dirt/rocks. I'm not sure where they got the forks and I'm not sure I want to know

Mommy& Hope having a little playtime!

Having Fun and More Progress!!!!

We have been having so much fun this week. The kids are great and besides wanting their Papa to be here they are thrilled!! We have played a lot and today were able to go to the beach!! I'll post more on that later.

Today was such an awesome day!! My God is so amazing and faithful!! As well as going to the beach, I was holding a letter in my hand stating that DHS was pleased to inform us that Wilbert, Lourdesmia & Sutherlande were orphans according to...... This means we can proceed with the adoption. Next step, IBESR!!! Praise God!!!! How GREAT is our God!!!!!!!

M'ap vini fanmi'm!!

I'm coming my family!!

5 more days!!

5 more days till I board a plane
to a country not my own
yet to my children all the same

5 more days till I'll hold them once again
I wonder if they know
Do they wonder where I've been?

5 more days till I see their precious smiles
It erases all the time
And it melts away the miles

5 more days, "I'm coming!" I'm here to say
I'll be there very soon
And for a week I get to stay

I love you Mia, Noah and Hope!! I can't wait to be with you again!!

Spring Break '07

Spring Break was last week so I thought I would share our week. Sunday through Wednesday we were at "Camp Meemaw's". It's a tradition we started a few years ago. My sister and I and all the grandkids spend a few days at my Mom's. We camp out if at all possible. Thursday through Saturday Jeremy and I took the kids to Indy and spent a day at the Children's Museum, did some shopping, ate at PF Changs(yumm!!) and let them swim at the Hotel. We had a great time and talked off and on all week about what it would have been like with the kids here. Here's a few pictures from our time in Indy. Hopefully next year's pictures will look totally different!!
