So, God, take a look. I am doing my part. I am ready for you to give me the "go ahead." I am tired of sitting around pouting. I am going to prepare for him and TRUST that you're about to move!

For the record.... in the 5 years we've been married, this is the FIRST time I have seen Scott iron! We were getting ready for church this morning and his jeans were VERY wrinkled. His idea of ironing is throwing EVERYTHING in the dryer. I told him they were too wrinkled for that and if he would just put them on the ironing board I would iron them for him---I turned around and there he was ironing his VERY OWN pants!! My heart almost stopped beating. It was more than I could handle. I HAD to take pictures and post them. Those of you who know him (his mom, sister, dad etc..) would never believe it! SO, not only was he recognized at his job this past week, but he has now taken his first step up the domestic ladder! GOD IS A GOD OF MIRACLES!!!!

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I am going to try and keep busy. I'll keep my camera on me and if I do anything interesting, I'll be sure and share!
Happy Memorial Day!

I am not looking forward to the weekend. My caseworker is off work tomorrow :( AND Monday is Memorial Day--I don't know if she's in the office then either!
Again, it is important for those of you who read this to understand that I am happy for Lou, and everyone else who has had their long awaited prayers answered. It just makes me want to scream out and ask God, "How else can I pray?? What do I have to do to get you to hear me?" I know He hears me, so no one has to write and tell me that He's in control---I know He is! I just am not sure how much more I can handle. My sweet little baby is in an orphanage a million miles away from me! How is that in our best interest?? I haven't held him, smelled him, heard him laugh/cry in 5 months! And at this point I don't know when I will again. PLEASE, GOD! HEAR MY CRY AND BRING THIS TO AN END!!!! I cannot take it anymore!
I thank you all for your prayers and support---I DO need it right now. I am very weak and hurting. I am on my way to bed. If by some miracle I receive an update tomorrow I will post it! Goodnight.

We are beginning week number 8 in PGN! I know that You know this. I wanted to publicly ask You to allow us to come "out" this week. We've been in 3 times now and we are READY to bring JP home! I know that You have a plan for this process. I've learned alot about You throughout this journey. I've learned how to serve You, love You, and praise You EVEN with a broken spirit. I would not trade this trial for anything, but my heart is ready for it to come to an end. You tell me in the book of Matthew that You long to give good gifts to Your children who are faithful---IF they will only ask. I am asking! Please grant my request.
I love You, Father, and I promise to be faithful regardless of my circumstances. We will be careful to give You praise, honor and glory for the gift of this child.
In Jesus' name, Amen

Today was an okay day. I went to the Zoo with my class. The weather was perfect. Tomorrow we have our "end of the year" picnic. It should be fun too. Lots of food and fellowship!! Scott and I are taking our little niece, MacKenzie, to the local baseball game tomorrow night! I will take my camera and take lots of pictures to share.
I spoke with my agency AGAIN today. Our lawyer has been checking on our case EVERY DAY at the PGN. It has not received a previo or approval. Tomorrow marks 7 weeks in. She told me that he expects to hear that we're out any time now. I wish I could feel anxious about that, but I don't. Until I get the phone call I am so numb to it all. It's hard to be happy or excited about the time that's passed--I'm too afraid to hear that we're kicked out again. I prayed all afternoon that God would not allow that to happen. Thank you all for your prayers and support! It is greatly appreciated!!
Have a happy Friday and I will post CUTE pictures sometime Saturday! Oh yeah, how about Melinda getting the boot last night?? I was SHOCKED!!!!! Congrats to Blake and Jordan!! I really do not have a favorite---they are both pretty good!

I guess you can say that God knew I was soakin' in a lot more than just bath water. Here's a few things that were floatin' around amongst the bubbles:
