CCAA Update

The China Center for Adoption Affairs has updated their website, and our worst fears have been realized. They only issued referrals for children for people who were logged in from May 31-June 6. Our LID is Nov. 4th, so we fear that our wait may be even longer than we had planned. We are trying to stay very positive during this long wait, but our hearts are saddened by this news. The emotions that we are experiencing during our wait are undescribable, so we appreciate how understanding and patient all of our friends and family are trying to be. There simply isn't anything we can do to speed up the process or help you understand the process any better. You have to experience it to understand it. Please remember Troy and I in your prayers. Also, we have many new friends who are waiting, as well, and may actually be in our travel group. Please keep them in your prayers, too. I've spoken with several of the "moms-to-be" lately, and they, too, are having some difficult days. It's nice, however, to have someone to talk to that's going through the exact same emotions. Karsynn, wherever you are (if you are even born yet), I know that God is watching over you. Mommy and Daddy will come and get you as soon as we possibly can. We love you with all of our hearts!!!

Clothes, books, and yes, more toys!

We've waited 13 years for our first child, so "yes" we are having a blast getting ready for her! We've bought clothes of all sizes, tons of books, and yes, lots of toys. It looks like Karsynn already needs a bigger closet and another bookshelf. DADDY!!!!!!
