Fun in Hong Kong

Sarah and Julia were watching Toy Story and found a section in the bonus features about a Toy Story theme park in Hong Kong.  They decided that they wanted to go.  I explained that they would not be going and they expressed the unfairness of the fact.  Then Julia had an idea, "If you are in Hong Kong and your not where Jedidiah is yet then you can go to the park while you wait."  I think it's a great idea.  I'll let you know if we do end up going.

A Must See

I love when someone is willing to share the truth boldly. Watch this video and see what I mean.

Something to Share

I few weeks ago Josh and I had the opportunity to share our adoption journey with our home church.  As usual I felt like I should have shared more.  More about the need for families to open up their home to a child waiting for someone to love them.  I also wish I could have shared more about how wonderful it is to have a child with Down syndrome.  If I could I would make it my life goal to change our worlds perspective on having a child with Down syndrome.  I know that we have been blessed with Hannah having such great health and development but even if that was not the case she would still be just as precious to us. 

Honestly the only thing that could devastate me about Hannah is if she weren't a part of our lives.

I Made a Call

I decided to call the agency and see how things were going and find out if we needed to do anything else right now.  They asked for some documents and said we should get out passports.  I know getting the passports does'nt mean I will be on a plane any sooner but at least I feel like we are moving forward. 
YAY something to do!

This past week has been a real struggle for me.  I have had to talk myself out of being angry several times over the lack of progress with the adoption.  I know that God has everything in control but man is it hard when your on the waiting side of  progress.  This is especially hard since I know the next few steps will get us to that desired moment, when we will be matched with our son.  I'm ready to see the face that will steal my heart and have me aching for our trip to Hong Kong. 

So, please pray that the the agency will get things processed soon and even more important, that I will be patient.  Thank you.

No New News

Since we have no new news regarding the adoption I would like to share another one of my favorite songs. This one is by the David Crowder Band. The lyrics are so poetic and paint a beautiful picture of God's love and grace. I love it. Enjoy!

Yes, He loves you!!!!!
