Thank you all for your prayers as we head into the home stretch of our adoption. I am humbled by the emails I receive of encouragement, scripture and love from you. God is working in all of this for His Glory - His Purpose. I don't understand why this has to take so long... but I do understand that I serve a God who's plan is not to harm us, but to give us HOPE and a FUTURE. Oh - I am believing it!
So - join me (again) in praying that this week is THE week we start our 30 day appeal.
and this is a beautiful thing...especially after the day the two of us had! Whew. My 2 year old cutie wore me out.

Olivia chose what she wanted to do today. JT is taking her - along with 3 girlfriends- to Kabutos for dinner. Afterwards, back to our house for a sleepover! What fun!
Happy Birthday sweet girl. I am so very proud of you. You have shown me what a strong, special little girl you are as our family has been on this journey to the DR this summer and now as we are apart from each other. God has asked something very BIG of you because he knew YOU could do it! Alex is so lucky to have you as a big sister.
I love you!

Alex most definitely has some new friends. He even decided to join them in front of the church as they talked about their week here doing construction on Pastor Mario's church. The congregation also prayed a blessing over the team. Alex decided he liked to be front and center. He is shy like that!
Like father- Like son

Our little guy was so happy to see his Daddy.
Bailey and Olivia's friends met them at the airport and were so happy to see them too!
First day of school. Gotta love those forced smiles for Mom!
End of Summer -Back to School chocolate cake.
Some very dear friends hosted a lovely shower for me while I was home. Bailey joined me in the festivities. It was such a beautiful day celebrating Alex.
I am so blessed by my sweet friends.
I am back in the DR with my guys. JT flies home on Sunday. Please pray for my family. Our Judge has FINALLY received the one document he was waiting on from Immigration. We are still waiting for our 30 day appeal to officiallly start. In the meantime I will stay here in the DR with Alex and JT will be in Charlotte with girls.
We are on the home-stretch and it is stretching me for sure!!!!!!!!
