What do you think??


Well, here is our new look.. and new name!! Isn't it wonderful?? A HUGE THANK YOU to my friend BETHANY for the assistance and her master creation above! If you don't already visit her blog, you really should. She is wonderful photographer and a fantastic writer. I just love reading. She just adopted little Addison (Nika) from Russia!! I am so blessed to have her as a friend! Thank you Bethany!!!
I would also like to THANK LEAH!! She came up with the new name for our blog! I put a note out there on Facebook that I was trying to think of a different name for our blog and Leah responded. I had the opportunity to meet Leah about a year ago and Angela too! She is wonderful!!! Thank you Leah!!


Also..... we got the email that we have been waiting for! A new picture of Jacob!! We were over the moon excited to see this. However it was a bitter sweet moment for me. While I am excited to get a new picture and can see that is doing well. I miss him more than ever. I thought that getting a picture would make things easier! Easier to see that he is doing relatively well, considering he is in an orphanage! But, on the contrary, even though see seems happy enough, I know that he will be much happier in our arms and that makes me want to board a plane today and go get him. Patience... I know. Soon we will have our boy home. Only 2 1/2 short months before we "hope" to travel, maybe sooner! I have been praying freverently for patience. God grant me patience!!
Here is the new picture of our little bug!!!!

Isn't he precious???

Very precious! What a sweet little man. Thanks for sharing his new photo!

(I've been meaning to ask - do you want any clothes for him? I have some stuff from Jack that's cute. Let me know.)
