Getting to know you...

Getting to know ALL about you...

Yup...that's about all we've been up too the last week or so...
getting to know the sweet girl the Lord has brought into our lives. And let me tell you...she is PRECIOUS!!!! We have all fallen head over heals in love with her. She is so spunky and full of life. She gets along so well with the boys and they adore her. The babies think she's pretty cool too;)! Little Miss "A" seems to be settling quite nicely into our crazy family. She does GREAT during the daytime, but nights still seem to be a little harder for her. She hasn't slept through the night yet, but as each night goes by, she is waking up less and less. We are praying and hoping that she (and Shane and I) will soon be getting full peaceful nights of rest.

~So what HAVE we been doing?!?!?!

ARTS and CRAFTS--
One of "A's" favorite things to do!

Eating pink sprinkled doughnuts brought over by Grandpa and Grandma!

Getting dirty and playing in the dirt with new friends!

Eating yummy desserts!

Swimming!

Having movie nights and sleep overs in the playroom!

Playing baseball and

running the bases!

Being silly with these two boys!

Carowinds...

Slushies!

Rides!!!!

Yup...we are enjoying our time with this girl!!!

Jenny - I'm amazed by you! When I read your post, I cried tears of envy. Isn't that silly? Adoption has been on our hearts for years, as well as the possibility of being foster parents. We just keep thinking the "time isn't right yet". I'm feeling very impatient though and I'm so inspired that not only do you do so many things, but you do them all so well. Hopefully, God will reveal His plan and His time to us soon, but the waiting sure is hard!

Kudos to you and your amazing family!

She is a doll! She looks like she fits right in and has always been there! Praying for that sweet girls heart to be healed! I know she has to still be hurting, but God heals!

What a gift you are giving her!!! What a blessing for her to enjoy normal, happy, carefree childhood days. I pray she sleeps better soon. Blessings!

It looks like your family is really getting to know little "A". She is such a sweetheart. It looks like "A" and Riley have really hit it off well!

She seriously fits in perfectly with your family. She is so cute, and seems so happy! Your family is a blessing to her, I'm sure!

We are in the fost/adopt process now with 2 yr old twins. It was evident they were enjoying our family but their hurt showed up during sleep or times when they were processing and not busy. It's four months now and we have made so much progress. So clear that they fully (consciously and subconsciously) trust us now.

Like others have said 'A' looks like she fits in so perfectly. What a great match. Any hopes of adopting if things end up that way?
