Waiting and Saving....

Well, many things have been going on the last couple of weeks - not exciting, but progress with more paper work!  This week we were so excited to be able to send a letter and a photo album of our family to Aaron.  We took all kinds of pictures and the kids each wrote a letter to him as well - they were so sweet!  Aaron will probably be receiving the letters and photos with in the next couple of weeks, so please pray for his little heart as our family is introduced to him and the changes begin.  It is so easy to think of how absolutely excited our whole family is to be blessed with a new child - but at times I can get overwhelmed with the extreme changes that he has no control over and how confusing this must be for him.  I just can't wait to hold him and tell him how much he is loved and we will never leave him - and even more importantly how much God loves him and will never leave him!
Next month, May 7th, we will be having a fund raising garage sale to help cover the cost of our travel expenses.  So, if you live in our area and have anything you want to donate let us know - or if you need anything come check out all of the goodies! We have several families donating items to the garage sale so I think there will be some good stuff :)
Right now we have about a 2 month waiting period while our paper work is processed in China.  We are praying that it goes through quickly.  After that we will start moving towards getting more information on our travel timeline to China - we are still praying for August or September :)
Thank you so much for all your prayers and support - we will continue to give you up dates as we get closer to bringing our little one home~
