Catching up - again!

It has been a busy few weeks. My sweet Isabelle turned 4 and my baby boy turned 2! They just get big so fast!!!! We are so thankful that God chose us to be their parents. We are so blessed!

We also received updated pictures of our little girl in Ethiopia. She looks a lot bigger in the new photos. A visiting mom described her as "a firecracker...who loves attention and knows how to get it". Hoping to get a court date soon so she can come home. I think it is going to be interesting to watch our "twins" fighting for attention. Hurry home baby girl!

Adoption update!

There has been a lot happening on this front! Our case was to be heard on Feb. 25, but there was a paperwork discrepancy so it was never heard. We found out yesterday that our case was resubmitted to court on March 17th. We are now awaiting another court date.
There is also talk of some big changes in the Ethiopian adoption process. While we understand why certain things might be implemented we would prefer to not have to worry about it. Please pray that our case will be processed quickly!!
We also received new photos. She is starting to look more like a toddler than a baby. She has all her little baby teeth now. She is adorable.
We can't wait to get her home. If things go well, she should still be home this summer.

Ice Skating Fun

We had a great time at the ice rink last night. The kids did an amazing job, and Chris and I didn't fall. Yeah!!!
Everyone but Riley skated all by themselves. Riley decided he needed to be a bit older. Ha!
