July Update

I know - It has been sometime sense my last blog!  There just has not been much excitement! 

We had a fabulous 4th with great friends!  The boys and I are having a great summer staying busy at home with projects.  Brennan got a microscope and telescope as well as a few fun science kits that we have been working on.  Carson learned to ride a two wheel bike!  Lots and lots of swimming and staying cool in the pool of course.  I can't believe how fast this summer is going by.  I just want it to slow down. 

Well, today much to our delight and surprise, we received an update on our sweet girl.  They state that Our sponsorship of her has given her the ability to have better care and progress much better.  Her foster grandma loves to dress her up and take her out to show her off.  They say she is very pretty and very smart.  (Of course, I think so! I am her mother:) After her foster grandma mops the floor she helps out by bringing the trash can over.  When her foster grandma starts cooking dinner she will help out by getting out utensils and chop sticks.  She is well potty trained and gets her foster grandma up in the night when she needs to use the bathroom by telling her “pee-pee”!  I love seeing this picture of her observing her toys.  Thank heavens she is being allowed to enjoy and observe her toys.  She has a passion for learning!  Her hair is growing a bit too!  She is still just 28 pounds but she has grown an inch.  She is 35 inches tall now.  She is so precious!  We cant wait to love on her and play with her and make her a part of our family!  Thanks so very much for all of the prayers!  They are working in the evidence of her progress!.

We got a picture - but for whatever reason I cant get it to work on here.  Sorry!

We are moving forward in the process as well!  Today our I 800a immigration was sent off.  Yeah - for progress.  We have finalized our home study - Hooray for that as well. 

Ok - I got the picture to work.  Had to copy and paste and snap a picture with my phone but I got it. 

Please continue to pray as we go through this process:
That Alivia Grace will continue to progress and remain healthy.
That she will know that she has a family waiting and excited to welcome her.
For strength and patience as we continue to wait out this process.
We pray for her birth mother that she knows that her daughter will be well loved and cared for.
We pray for her foster family as they care for her in this time.
That God will provide the funds needed to complete this process.

Thank you so very much!
Love - xoxo
