Photos from Nana's, Firehouse, and home

Hello everyone!
I wanted to post some more pictures... we have done a lot in the couple weeks, so I just wanted to post some of my favorite pictures. We had a visit to the Pierce Township Fire Station and Beks just loved it. Her cousins Sam and Stevie (the two blond girls you will see) went with us. It was so neat getting to "play" in everything!!!
Also, Beks loves to go to her Nana and Nai Nai's houses, but here Bekah is at Nana's playing in their house outside making big bubble messes with Sam.
Also, she has just discovered how much she loves peaches and insists "me hold it!"
We also recently went to a bunch a yard sales and found these tinker toys which she just loves, so of course we had to build the lawn mower, like her bubble mover and Daddy's mower.

We will probably be waiting for a little while for a referral for our precious daughter, but God is faithful and will get us through this waiting. If you think of it, please pray that if she is born already somewhere out there, that she is loved and well taken care of before she comes home to us.
Much love and blessings to you all!!!
Thanks for visiting.

How Bekah has grown!!!

I thought I would take a minute and post how our precious Rebekah has developed and grown beyond my wildest expectations over the past year and a half. I cannot believe it has been that long!!! I have loved (almost) every minute of it... hee hee!
Enjoy taking a walk down memory lane with us! From her first picture ever taken of her that came with our referral, to Gotcha Day in China, etc., then on to our most recent vacation where she really showed off how she loves to be silly and dance/ entertain a crowd of people (she couldn't be more like her mommy), as well as how she just seemed to fall in love with that goat, and he apparently loved her back. Enjoy!!!

We are Official!!!

Whooo hooooo!!!
We got our Fed Ex tracking number this morning, so it is official! Our dossier has been sent off to China. We should be getting our LID (log in date) within 4-6 weeks, even though they usually log the dossier in much quicker than that, we just don't hear back from them until the 4-6 week mark!
I have no idea what the Lord has in store for us, but I cannot wait for the moment we get that email, open the file, and see her face for the first time. I cannot even describe it!! My Chatty Sisters may be able to, but with that being our first child, and having no other way of comparing the "birth" of a child, it is too much to even describe! It is a complete leap of faith, but God is so good and He has already selected our next child for us, we just have to be patient and wait for His perfect timing!!
If you could pray that the process continues to go smoothly and for a timely referral, we would greatly appreciate it!

We are DTC!!!!

Hello everyone! I couldn't be happier to announce that we have confirmation that our dossier will be sent to China tomorrow!!! So, I figured I better get posting on a website for our wait for Leah! We have also decided that Leah is going to be our new little one's name. As things continue to happen, I will certainly post them. I would love for anyone in the waiting stages to contact me with any questions and I would be more than happy to answer them! This is our second time around with China and I am just so excited!!! The process is a little different this time around, but that is what I have my wonderful Chatty Friends for, who are one step ahead of me!!! Love you girls.
Anywho, God is so great for providing us the tools we need to complete our second adoption. I don't think I will be done yet after this one, I still want my boy. But, we are really excited to have another little girl and a sister for Bekah, she is going to be a great big sis!
Blessings to all and thanks for visiting our blog!
