Hello 2011

Wow! The last month barely stopped to blink at me as it whizzed on by. Guess it's time for an update!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas! It was so much fun to watch Josie at her very first Christmas ever! She is such a joy to be around and I just love her to pieces. Can you tell?
This is our wonderful Christmas dinner! We got to spend some great quality time with my sisters and family. Amber was so sweet to open her home and let us feast daily! We had a great time!

Josie wasn't crazy about opening presents. She mostly just wanted to run around, play with bows, and search for rogue balloons.
We are still waiting to hear back from Lifesong about our adoption grant. Please continue to pray that the Lord would provide for us through that and quickly if that is how it is meant to be. We are mostly done compiling the dossier and are just waiting on the funds. We went to Birmingham today and got our "biometric fingerprints" done. It sounds so high-tech, but it's just like the machine in Montgomery so...I'm not sure what the difference really is, but it feels nice to have that done. We also got two new suitcases! These will be able to handle the International travel ahead of us and keep us under any weight requirements.
So...yeah I'm pretty much itching to go. 2010 brought me my sweet daughter Josie and Lord willing, 2011 will bring our sweet daughter _____ (yep still not tellin' the name!) home to us from Ehtiopia! For that, I welcome 2011.


  1. Jacky we are sooo excited about your adoption!!! It makes us so blessed to call you our friends! We also cannot wait for you to bring her home. Don't worry about the grant and the money it will all come through. Praying that things get moving quickly and that you get to bring your sweet girl home asap!!!

  2. Yay!! I am so happy for you. I can't wait to hear that your dossier is on the way. I'm sure you will have your immigration pre-approval soon. How exciting!! We are not telling our little boy's name yet either. 2011 will be a wonderful year for both of our families. Everything will work out perfectly according to God's timing.
