And Then There Was....

two.

When I was at the store the other day I found a cute pair of shorts with a bright colored shirt. I thought it would be a perfect summer outfit. I also picked up a few more girly things that I think A might enjoy, including a new bathing suit. I hope it fits her.

Just to be fair, I found some cool boy outfits for P. I wonder if he is around the same size as William. I'm thinking he isn't quite as tall. I can't wait to see if I am right!

Yes, we have petitioned to adopt a sibling group---- hopefully we will have a new son and daughter (just a few years older) by the end of summer!

How did I miss this post?!
Congratulations! So exciting.

As I'm sure you know better than I do, there are joys that come with adopting older children that few will ever have the privilege to experience. Our first months with our adopted 8 year old have been so sweet--from his first bath with warm water to his first Christmas and birthday with a family. The joys outweigh the challenges.

Thanks for your obedience in God's call to adopt. Your family story is humbling and inspiring.

Much Love,
Kathie
