HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY HOPE!

I asked if she wanted to be in a dress so that I can take pictures in the park...she smiled but then said "I don't want to get dirty?"

That's our girl...

and I cannot believe that she is now 4! We just sent out last post placement report and said goodbye to our social worker June-who we adored! We cannot work with June for China..but we did ask her tons of questions concerning China adoptions today, and as usual she was so informative. June says we are very fortunate to have Hope so healthy and happy-I agree, we are quite blessed-its the only reason that we are attempting this process again. To whom much is given much is required is what Luke 12:48 says-and isn't that the truth! After our mission trip to Nicaragua its exactly how I felt.

CCAI has not appointed a social worker to us just yet for the homestudy. We are slowwwwly compiling the dossier...yuck! We have parent training classes that we have to do as well..that I barely started. Every day, I go back and forth in my head about an older child..no a younger child...but I think I'll just give it to God to decide. Also, I have found amazing blogs that I am slightly addicted to. There are some amazing people out there, that truly love the Lord and truly, care for orphans-so in essence I have found some undercover heroes.

 I hope I can put pics on tonight, because Blogger keeps changing and its starting to get complicating to post pics on here-hence my lack of. I am not a phone-photo-taking-person. To me a cell is a cell and a camera is a camera...and Blogger is limiting where I can retrieve photos from grrr. Let me know if you know how to resolve this.
