Another month gone by...

October 17th already! This fall is going fast but we are so ready to meet J and have him home!  Wow...waiting is just hard!

Once Jake and Elyse turned two I no longer kept track of  their age in months but since our boy isn't home yet I am still marking each month with a celebration of him! He is 25 months!

This month we ordered J two new books.  The first one is I Love You, Little One by Nancy Tafuri. I love the illustrations in this book!

 We figured there was no better book for J since he loves to play with cars and trucks than Constance Robinson's My First Truck Board Book.
Would you also join us again this month by donating to Compassion International's Bite Back program. For 10 dollars you can save a life!  In August, we shared how J had just gotten over Malaria.  You can read that post here.  It shouldn't be that children have to suffer and die with Malaria when it is so treatable.  Please consider making a donation!

Please continue to pray! We are hoping that we get news this week! 


  1. My boys have that truck book and STILL read it a lot! Good choice!

  2. Hoping with and praying for you!!! Love ya much. Hang in there. Once he's home you will wonder at how fast the time has gone.
