I am just so thankful to everyone that has prayed for our family and supported us as we grow our family. We are one step closer to bringing home Jaidyn Grace and reuniting her with her sisters!! Jordyn and Jailynn are both very excited as we get closer to brining her home. We will likely travel sometime next year to bring her home. We still have a ways to go but I am just so relieved to have the paper chase behind me. This has been the longest paper chase yet. When we first staretd this adoption, I was naive to think that we would have already brought our precious daughter home by now. Well, at least we are done wiht the paper chase anyway. I actually drove to Austin today to our agency to provide one more document that was needed for the package to go to China. I could have just sent it by mail and then we would be DTC next Friday, but I just could not stand to wait another week. I guess that is the adoption hormones flaring up. I wanted to get this done. So I drove to Austin while my children were in school. It was really a good drive because I spent time just talking to The Lord about all this and asking Him some soul searching questions. Well, He actually comforted me through the drive. I met the staff at our Agency including the Director Snow Wu. It was all just really sureal to me and then when they told me the Dossier was actually on the way to China...I just could not help but break down in tears.I had the weight of the world lifted off my shoulders at that moment. Then, on the way home I really praised God and thanked Him that we are over the paperchase. I was the crazy woman worshiping God in the stop and go trafic. I was just so happy and full of joy! So I hope that you will all rejoice with me as we have our DTC!!!

The rest of our family
In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!
