big yard sale coming up for us

well we are ready to go whenever they send us court papers and a date. but since we havent left yet we are planning a huge yard sale. family and friends have pitched in and donated stuff for us to sale. we had a big popcorn sale and just might have to take up another order on it. we are going to start putting the boys room together in the next week or so. we have decided to put them in a room together at first to help with the adjustment of moving here. we continue to pray for our young boys and that we get to bring them home soon.

two months

well it has been 2 months since we left young markus in the orphanage with alex. now steve is really impatient and i have tried to be a ready. my mother and i have packed the boys suitcase. also we put together two little backpacks filled with goodies for our time in the offices and on the trip home. our church is in revival this week so that takes up some of the time .we also found that the boys are both a little sick due to the weather changing over there so quickly. we continue to pray regularly that God make the way for us to bring home our to precious little sons.

the shower went well

well there was about 65 people at our shower and most were surprised to see Alex's picture with Markus'. we got car seats , booster chairs , a double stroller, and loads of clothing. the funny thing is we got about 25 sleepers and sippy cups. we are very thankful for everything. God is truly blessing our family by giving us the two most beautiful boys and a great loving support group of family and friends.
