The greatest experience, the one which shakes a soul with hopes and fears, the results of which are never ending, and incidentally, the one which pays the biggest dividends, is to be found in the adoption of children.

It's A New Week!

The Birth Mother Interview deadline has come and gone and the world is still spinning. The sun is still shining, and our hopes are still high. We continue to pray for that miracle!

Today was "Picture Day". I'm sure you know by now, we love picture day! Our little sweetie has had an obvious haircut.............I don't think she sat too still! She is still looking very healthy and happy.
And, can it be..........she's walking????????

If not, I think she's getting close!

Mark got me an early anniversary present (29 years on the 7th....Wow!). He's sending me down in a couple of weeks to spend Nola's first birthday with her. I can't wait! I wish we could go together, but we're hoping he is working by then.

We continue to pray and believe our prayers will be answered.

I have been waiting to read an update. I was not aware of the changes in Guatemala adoptions and how it is affecting you. I am so glad you will be with your daughter on her first birthday. I pray things work out quickly and she comes home soon!

Oh Pam, I am so happy to see some kind of up date. I check on you daily and continue to pray...knowing that God will manifest himself in your adoption of NOla. So happy for you that you get to be with Nola on her first birthday. Blessings, Susie
