Seems like just yesterday I held my babies for the first time...
until I look at pictures like these.
**Gotcha Day x 2 in the Civil Affairs Office in Nanjing.**And these. Then, it seems like a lifetime ago. What a difference!
Kennah has gained 4 ounces (yeah!!!!) and tells big stories in some kinda toddlereze jibberish. She's a social butterfly!
Kasidi is pulling herself up and standing with assistance. We are still attached at the hip, but I'm certain she'll leave my side by Kindergarten!
To say the least, life is crazy
and about to get even crazier!
In fact, I think I've lost my everlovin' mind!
My self-employed paid time off is running out - bahahahaha. The boss says I need to return to work, effective immediately. That would be today. The kiddos will stay home with Kenzie while I'm in depositions, and then I'll have the glamorous task of completing the transcripts from the luxury of my home office - bahahahaha again.
We've been trying to organize closets and toys and throw away stuff. No matter how ya' slice it, a small house is a small house!
Extreme Makeover Home Edition, where are you?!?
And then I get slapped in the face with just how blessed we are!
At Falls Creek I was reminded of this ~
A lot can happen in a year (or less!) Last year at Falls Creek we were only seeking the Lord, asking that He'd reveal His plans to us. When He showed us a precious baby girl, abandoned in a toilet at birth, diagnosed with spina bifida and given a name which means 'bringing back to life,' we couldn't ignore His plan of adoption in August. Armed with zero dollars, a ton of determination and enough faith to get through each day, we pulled our bootstraps up and started fundraising like no other, stepping completely out of our comfort zone. When we said 'yes' to adopting two at the same time again in January, things really started moving. We traveled three months after our second referral, wrapping up the whole process in 9 months. I'm still amazed by God's plans!
My devo passage this morning was the familiar verse, Luke 1:37 ~ For nothing is impossible with God.
See that? Nothing! No thing!
What seems impossible for you today? Join hands with the Lord and watch Him do the impossible!
