Fun Weekend!

Well, this has been a great weekend! Friday, Sarah Grace and I went to the airport to welcome home our friends, Stacie and Nathan and there precious new daughter, Karlye, from China. It was an awesome experience. She was the first of the "Red Thread Moms" to bring her daughter home (RTMs is group of moms that the Lord brought together, who are all adopting daughters from China). The RTMs have been such a blessing. We meet almost weekly and share this beautiful yet sometimes challenging journey of adoption together.
Then Saturday it was on to the lake with our sweet friends, the Stuarts. We had a great time and it wore the kids out!

These kids LOVE to fish!

Jacob, Sarah Grace and Payne. This was right before I dropped my camera and BROKE it!:(

Good times!

Tired baby!
Last two pics taken with Stephen's Iphone. Not too sure when I will be getting a new camera:( Hope my next post will be me telling you that we have been logged in:)

I am officially a blogger!

Hello blogging world! Most of you know that I am starting this to share our adoption story. I mostly wanted to start it to keep family and friends updated and for ya'll to be able to track us while in China:)
.....I hope I have set this thing up right:/
A quick update for those who may not know....we are in the process of adopting a little girl from China. We have requested as young as possible which is typically around 1 yr old, give or take a few months. We hope to be logged in to China's system in the next couple of weeks and hopefully know who our daughter is at the end of this month. Exciting!!!
Anyway, it is official, all of the paperwork we have been working on for over a year has finally been sent to China, PTL!!! In adoption lingo we are DTC (Dossier to China). I will do my best to educate everyone, as I am still learning myself. The Lord has been faithful and I cannot wait to continue to share what He is doing in our lives.
I will post of my other two sweetie pies soon and I will work on making my page look pretty:)
