Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Swingin' Smiles

Oh how I long for the days of spring... Oh wait this was just 2 days ago!  Now we are smack dab in the middle of a cold rainy weekend and we are even expecting some snow.  I am not a big fan of big the cold, maybe if I could cuddle up by the fire with a cup of coffee and a good book and just wait out the "storm" I wouldn't mind the cold so much, but that is NOT my life.  So I long for warm weather where we can laugh and play and run through fields of daisies,  or at least something like that.  Or just letting the kids burn off their energy in the great outdoors rather than in my living room on my furniture.  These are some cute photos of the kids playing on the swings a few days ago when it was nice and warm.  Fun, Fun!


Udate on the Wait:  No news is not good news in this case, we are still waiting with no word.  I was holding out for a miracle that we would be able to travel to get Finn before the Trade Fair which is at the end of April...  It looks like we have passed the point of possibility.  We waited 63 days for our LOA for Mina, we are passed that point in our wait for Finn.  I hope and pray that things move along quickly from here.  This is tough stuff.

Amy,
I check your blog about 3 times a week. I got your comment and yes, we live close. We're near Roanoke, Virginia. The snow is beautiful. I wish you a speedy LOA also and love the pics of the kiddos.
