About Me

I have adopted 4 children from a specific orphanage in Eastern Europe and I want to see more children redeemed from that orphanage and brought into families. I want to make sure that the children who are still left behind in that place are never forgotten.

Getting so Close!

We are getting so close to Cody being home.  We are only 10 days from his new "Come Home Day"!

We were going to Skype yesterday, but decided today would work better.  I was out for a long day of getting things ready for Julianne's 5th Birthday, Crystal's 12th Birthday, and Cody's Homecoming.  I came home with a lot of stuff to put away.  Cody's foster parents' grandkids came over for the day there and they were running late.  I was disappointed that I wasn't going to get to talk to my little guy, but realized that with both families' busy days, waiting one more day wouldn't kill me.

I was so happy when the phone rung, because my little guy didn't want to wait either!  Hearing his voice was so good!

Then today we were able to Skype with him.  Oh, how I love that little sweetie!  He was talking about having gone to church this morning.  He was talking about lunch (this seems to be his favorite meal because it is the one who always mentions!  lol).  He was talking about the airplane!

His foster parents are hard at work preparing him for the move.  They have been busy packing for his move and the other little girl there who is heading to her adoptive family soon.  Cody is a heavy packer and is making sure not to miss anything.  :)

One of the cutest parts is that he is wanting to see Jesus when they are in the plane!  How cute is that????  I mean, he is going up in the clouds!?!  I can just hear Brent and he talking on that plane! 

I know that I can't wait to get my hands on him!  I've been longing to hug that sweet boy since we left there over 2 years ago.  I just knew deep down in my heart that he would be mine some day!  God just spoke to my heart and He put such a cutie in front of me that not even Dallas's system could keep me from wanting to fight through. 

Praising God for this coming blessing!

  1. I am so excited for you. How old is Cody? He sounds like such a sweetie. Can't wait to "meet" him on your blog. :) Sounds like the foster parents are doing such a wonderful job preparing him for the transition. What a wonderful blessing. May God grant you peace and safety during the coming days.
