3 MONTHS and Counting....

Our dossier was approved and sent to the Philippines August 26. We now wait for the approval of the ICAB (Intercountry Adoption Board) in the Philippines. Average approval time is 1-3 months...we are now at 3.5 months, so I like to think of us as above average. I'm not obsessing about it, but I would say that I am a little anxious. They could not approve us altogether (though that rarely happens) or they may not approve our age and gender request...this is what I am more anxious about. I then remember God's word saying, Be anxious for NOTHING, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication with THANKSGIVING let your requests be made known unto God. Knowing God has everything in control, and nothing surprises Him, I choose to trust Him to guide our lives and timing. So while we wait...we LIVE. Here are pictures of some of what has been happening the last few months...

At the fair.....



Brenden had his second season of soccer and got to play with all of his best friends.


Casen turned 2....


We picked the perfect pumpkin...


Halloween with my ninja, batman, and fighter!




Austin had his 6th season of soccer, but first competitively.


My sister and I went to our first Texas game...


Thanksgiving weekend....Austin LOVED this.



Silver Dollar City!


We got some snow on Thanksgiving day, but that did not prevent the boys from going for a ride!

And now we continue to wait...and live! :)
