32 Weeks...

Waiting is one of the greatest parts of the process...right?

As we wait for our precious little girl to come into our lives I have been WORKING on embracing the wait. In any situation that requires the "wait" for me is one of the most difficult times.

We have been studing Romans in our bible study recently and it has helped me to understand the word HOPE in a whole new light. The bible teaches us that there is a precise purpose in those long hours, days or even YEARS of waiting. It teaches us to find JOY in our suffering: because we know that suffering produces PERSEVERANCE; perseverance builds CHARACTER; and character, HOPE. And HOPE does not disappoint.

For Dave and I our FOCUS and FAITH are in God because HIS plan is flawless and his TIMING perfect! It is also comforting to know that he is with us every step of the way. We are excited and know His answer is on its way!

A first

Today we heard evidence of one of Gods precious miracles. The beating heart of a 30 week old baby. It truly was one of the most amazing thing we have ever experienced.

We feel incredibly blessed to be on this journey together.

Tonight Dave and I received some wonderful news via these adorable little hand made cards by our expectant mom. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Dave and I are extremely excited...a little in shock and in awe of our blessings!

Festival Anyone?

First things first...we were encouraged to today to hear that we will have another opportunity to meet with the expectant mom next week! I can't help but see how with each step of our journey we are being prepared for the next.

We have been busy this week preparing for the "BIG" Festival in Pine, AZ this weekend. It should be a real hoot. Quilt show, Blues Festival and an Art Festival all in one and... we are hoping for some cooler weather! So if you are hanker for something fun to do this weekend C.H.A.R.M. ADDICTION will be in Pine selling our goods!

Gods...timing is perfect!

Another amazing week

Tonight we had a wonderful meeting/dinner with our new friends. We just keep saying what an amazing journey this is. To have the opportunity to meet such pleasant people and to share intimate details of our life together. To be honest, open and vulnerable.

A week ago we were complete strangers and tonight we are sharing pizza and our hearts. I can't stop thinking about what a blessing it is to have this open and direct communication.

No matter what the outcome, Dave and I agree that this young girl has made a lasting impression on us and we hope that we have done the same.

PS She is due September 1
