An oldie but sweet one…
Today we got the news that we got our Pre-Approval from the CCAA. Another step in our walk towards Lauren!!
Sometimes, like this afternoon, when when my kids are all around me- laying by me on the couch- watching Phineas and Ferb, playing hide and seek….and yellin' at each other….and I think, where is she? She should be here. And in the same breath, I think What are we doing?
I know with all my heart it is the right thing. But sometimes I get scared. And nervous. And anxious.
And more ready every day.
otherwise known as….another random list to take up my time. And not obsess. that much.
Oh how I wish I could show you a few new favorite photos…..
But, we have to wait.
I can share some older ones…..
And, I can officially announce the name of our newest daughter (ok, provided she likes it…)
Miss Lauren Grace (Chinese name) Markmiller
There is a wonderful organization called Love Without Boundaries…which helps orphans in China in many different ways. Our sweet little girl has been benefiting from being sponsored through Love Without Boundaries, and we will forever be thankful for everything she has received because of them.
Right now, they are having an auction….on ebay!!! Go, look, buy and know you are helping children all over China!!!
Go Here and bid!! : )
We are in awe. And amazed. And once we get all the confirmation from China, we will share everything….but for now, we are thankful and in awe. We have accepted a referral for a little girl!!! And there are red threads given to us by God galore…we can't wait to tell the story. We are over the moon in love, and beyond blessed.
This is sweet Kiah. Kiah lives at New Day. Kiah needs our help. She needs surgery, but needs some help with funding for it. And it is not only Kiah. New Day is an amazingly wonderful place. My niece Lindsay interned there over the summer and got to see first hand the work that they do. AMAZING. We can help Kiah and so many other children who are not only in need of forever families, but new hearts… Please consider what you may be able to do! Go here to see how!!
