Thank You Thank You Thank You!!!

Thank you to everyone that has put our adoption button up on your blog. I am so thankful for wonderful family and friends like you. We are still totally crazy with life right now. It is finally midterms and who would have though 4 weeks would drag on. :) I am hoping the next 4 weeks flies by. I am really looking forward to a little break before fall semester starts. We are still being very patient with the whole adoption thing. How long has it been since we got approved? 2 week? lol who knows... I am just ready for another baby!

JT is now 3!! Seriously where did the time go? It seems like he was just born and now he is a big boy. We were able to celebrate his birthday with my sister and her kids. We also had a blast while they were here. Hanging out and just having fun. Other than that our lives are pretty boring. lol They consist of wake up, work, homework, play with JT, clean the house, cook dinner, homework, sleep... do it all over again! :) I am sure you are so jealous!

The boys loved the pinata... Pacers was a little sad he was hitting McQueen though.
JT & Trey Trey loved it!!!

What is better than money!

I am sure he wanted to take this puppy home, but we already have 2.. sorry kiddo! :)

Let's get the word out.

The church is now promoting "finding" your baby instead of "waiting." So I am taking a very proactive approach and getting our information out there any way I can. I am so thankful for this opportunity that we have. I never imagined that we would be in this situation. I always thought by now that we would have been done with our family. Little did we know that the Lord has a different plan for us. JT has been such a blessing in our lives and we can't wait to add another special spirit to our family. This is where you can help.

* I have set up an adoption blog. Please grab the button over to the right and put it on your blog. It will take you directly to our adoption blog. If you are interested in having people grab the button from your blog, let me know, and I can email you the html code.

* Keep your eyes and ears open. Any situation you hear of could be a possible lead. (It is sad to put it that way, but it is the honest truth) I will have pass-along cards soon and will give them to whoever is interested. That way if you hear about anything you can give them a card.

I am so thankful for all of you. Adoption is a whole different world, but I am so greatful to be able to experience it. Without adoption I wouldn't have my JT. You have all been so wonderful and supportive. :) You are the best. I will keep you updated on anything that happens! Until then... spread the word!!!!!

We are approved!!!!!!!!!!!!

So... I pretty much stink at the blog stuff! It seems when my life is busy the blog gets put on the back burner. I work a full-time job, I am a "full-time" homemaker, I have a 2 almost 3 year old (no explaining that one), Jon and I are going to school, church callings, family stuff, and on top of it all trying to get our adoption stuff done. But I have amazing news... We are approved. It was official on Wednesday! I can't believe that everything is falling into place and so quickly. I plan on posting everything that you guys can do to help us find our next baby. I have to finish a couple of things though. So stay tuned! :) I promise it won't be months this time. Only a few days! Until then... enjoy looking at this cute little guy!
