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.

A few updates...

So I know I have been pretty quiet on the adoption front, I have had a lot to say but none would have made sense so I just kept it to myself.  We had a bit of a paperwork fiasco that had my head spinning, but hopefully the dust has settled.  We have found ourselves in a very good place...hopefully.  We have been told that we may be able to travel sooner than we expected, BUT there is a hitch.... We have to receive all the necessary approvals right on time (if not a bit early).  If not, things may get a bit messy as I am putting all my proverbial eggs in one basket.    If y'all wouldn't mind sending up a prayer... specifically that we are able to leave China by Collin's 18th B-day!! We would be soooo incredibly grateful.    And I just had to share another photo of our little man,  who now has a name!!!!  We have his first name picked out now we just need a middle name...    
Ty

Most of you know that we are adopting Ty through the waiting child (or special needs) program.  He has quite a scar on his neck and in some of his photos you can see him holding things up in front of his adorably handsome little face, which of course just breaks my stinkin' heart.   Isn't he just the cutest little man!  and he looks so different with longer hair.  We think he is 100% perfect in every way.    I just can't wait to squish on him xoxoxo

I have been slacking on the blog this summer... with all the craziness 'round here.  I will probably be taking is slow for the next few weeks as well.. I just gotta relax and soak up all my babies for a while.. before school (and glorious routine) starts again.  Love y'all :)

This is an odd comment if you have time to answer...I was reading Young House Love about painting fireplaces white and saw your question and looked at your fireplace--very similar to ours. My question is, did you ever paint it white and if so did you post a picture of it afterwards? Just wondering, Looks like you have a busy household so I wonder if you actually had tim to do so. I hope you get Ty soon! Thanks!
