23 Months!

Happy 23 months, J!  I can't believe that another month has passed us by!  On one hand time is flying by and on one hand it is crawling by.  We miss him everyday and cannot wait to be with him!  We have adoption friends though, who are about to leave for Ug at the end of this month and I know that they will love on our sweet boy and that just does my heart good!

I love the books we got for J this month.  One of my favorite children's  books is Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown.  I have such great memories of reading it to Jake and Elyse.  Their copy has long since been destroyed so we needed a new one.

We also bought him the book A Mother for Choco by Keiko Kasza.  It is the story of a little bird who lives all alone and  is looking for a mother.  It is a sweet story about the journey he goes on to find a mother!

Please continue to pray for this process and for speed!   Waiting is just not easy and we know God is  in control. It is good to be reminded of that sometimes....



  1. So glad you have friends to love on your little one for you! We were so thankful that people were willing to snuggle Mareto and take pictures for us in the time we were apart. Such a blessing and it eases the pain of the wait! Hope you aren't waiting too much longer!

  2. A Mother for Choco is one of our all time faves!

  3. I love love love a Mother for of my favorites too!

  4. Recently found your blog and wanted to leave you a comment. So excited for your Ugandan adoption! We are a family with four little girls 7, 4, 2, and 9 months and are on the waitlist for Ethiopia. We have really good friends who are in the Holt Thailand program so it was cool to see you are another Holt fam.:) Anyway, blessings on your journey!
