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.

What up?

Things have been quite around this blog, because we are living the flip-side of quite.  So much for being prepared and packed and soaking up the last week of having only 4 kiddos.  We have run into a few snafus with our immigration paperwork (of which the Consulate in China had no record, which would mean either our travel would be delayed or we could possibly travel, but not bring Finn home.  It is the U.S. side of things that got all screwy but we worked it out)  and now this big "pig flu" scare.  I will admit that I got a little worked up yesterday,I caved and fell for the media hype with our upcoming travel and  fearing that the airports in China wouldn't intercept planes from the U.S. -hype.   I am laying all my fears and worries down, giving them over to God, and becoming more and more excited about meeting Finn.    The best $10 I have EVER spent,  on a super hot summer day about 3 years ago I bought one of those horrible looking little plastic pools.  Every year when it gets just hot enough out.. my kids beg to play in it and I drag it out of storage...  The thing won't quit and they LOVE it.  all of them, who knew?  Sorry, my wonderful neighbors (hi Chris) that you have to look at this ugly piece of blue plastic in my backyard.

ENJOY your last bit with 4 kids!!! Adding #5 was difficult for me. Maybe because he's the same age as #4, and I would do it all again, but enjoy the last bit of "normal" for a while!

I have been following your blog (I think I found it thru a link to "No Hands But Ours"--not completely sure!!) for a little while and wanted to introduce myself.
My name is Gwen and we adopted our daughter in Nov of last year. Her SN was a minor cleft lip (repaired in Beijing)
Anyway, I love your blog and your pictures. You have a beautiful family and I am so excited for you to travel soon! :) Best wishes!

I don't see any "ugly" blue play pools, just blissfully happy children!
