I want to give a shout out to my sister, Bobie! She and my sister, Diana have been such a huge help to my parents! Dad had cataract surgery yesterday and Bobie was their designated driver! I appreciate her taking time from work to be there! Mom doesn't drive anymore and she needs a good strong person to "lean" on when dad is out of commission! Thank you for being there when I cannot!
My parents are probably the most excited about the addition of Addison! My dad couldn't wait to hear if my application to adopt had been accepted! My girls love Nena and Poppa! Each has formed a special bond with their grandparents!
We are taking a mini vacation from school this week! Yesterday, we did spelling, it was a review lesson, all four girls took their spelling test and that is behind us for the week. Today, they are writing in their journals. The topic today, The things I am thankful for! I love reading their journals it gives me an insight to where they are and what they are thinking. Often they express things in the journal assignment that they have yet to put into words.
There is so much to do in preparing for Addison, the paperwork, the clothes, the additional furniture and you know what . . . I am thrilled to be in the middle of this! God is good and I cannot wait to meet this sweet girl!
God love for this child is far greater than mine and I cannot wait to see how he provides to bring her home! Nothing is impossible for him!
Until next time. . .
