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.

Catching Up On Lots Of Stuff

Just downloaded lots of pictures from my camera. So I'm sharing some of my favorite ones so you can see what all has gone around here that I've failed to blog about in the last couple of months.

Here's the guys in the kitchen on Joshua's Birthday. Josh is on the left making his own "hors d'oeuvres" and Tim is putting the icing on the cake (cause I needed some help).

Anna had her first shower in October. From left to right is my sister Geri, Anna, Alison and Kelsey. The girls had a beautiful party for Anna and her little one to come. We're counting down the days. Due date is Dec. 11th.

Here is the little Christmas rag quilt that I made for the baby. It turned out so cute! The picture doesn't really do it justice. Just take my word for's adorable!

Now for yesterday's fun. Lisa invited us, and Marty and her girls, for some cookie making fun. What a mess! But what FUN!!! The girls had a blast. Flour and dough were everywhere but that only added to the fun! Thanks so much Lisa! What a fun Friday!

Marty and her girls.

And in case you were wondering, there is no adoption news! It's been a long week worrying about little Nola. We're praying she's alright and that PGN gives the report to the judge soon.

I'm also praying there is a wonderful woman working in the hogar who has just fallen in love with Nola and is showering her with love and attention.

What an adorable quilt for the new grandbaby. You did a great job. Looks like you and Maria had a great time yesterday. Praying for some great news ASAP!

Nice updates. I know adoption stuff can be so consuming and life around you can get lost a little bit. Really nice shots.

I too am praying that God surrounds little Nola with an angel at the orphanage, and I believe with all my heart He has. May God continue to rest your heart dear friend...."Be still and know that I am God". susie

I've sent out feelers to Guatemala, Seychelles and California trying to get info on sweet Nola. I'll call you today and update you (Tuesday).
Love you guys,
