Happy Anniversary baby...got you on my mind...

Today is our 14th anniversary! At 4 p.m. marks the time I said "I do" to the man that I love. Little did I know that my mind would not be able to wrap itself around 14 years later and the love I have for this man. What an incredible blessing he has been to me and our four children. Not only has Jeff been an incredible husband with the utmost character and integrity, he has also been a wonderful father! I feel honored that God blessed me with such a wonderful soulmate! Happy Anniversary baby! I didn't think it was possible at the time but I love you way more today than I did the day I married you!

Our Family

The wait for our newly adopted little one gets hard at times. When you are destined to adopt I believe that God puts into your heart a hole that can only be filled by that one little one so far away. I can't wait until Isabella has her sister here to play with and love. They will be close and even though they are miles apart-oceans apart-they are sisters at heart!

I got ready to go out shopping and when I was leaving Bella came around the corner. She was ready to go too! Here is a funny pic of that day. I will keep you posted on details as I recieve them. Since I am new to blogging it may take me a while to figure it all out.

Our dossier made it to China

Our dossier has officially arrived in China today! Unfortunately the special needs list is not coming out this month and so we expect to hear something again in April. We continue to wait...

Since some of you viewing this might be interested I am posting some other things going on with our family. Haley got on Homecoming Court for the sixth grade group at Meridianville Middle. She was voted on by her peers for this and we were very proud of her. Here is a picture of her on that night. She's seems so grown up and she's only 12!
