On My Mind

We were sent Wynston's schedule in the orphanage. Now my thoughts are filled with his daily activities. When I wake at 6am, I know that he is waking up and being cleaned and dressed for breakfast. My heart just breaks just thinking of him sitting there waiting for staff to get his turn. We sent him a photo album of us so that he can see his new family. We hope that this will help him know that we are waiting for him to come home. I don't know how much he can process with him being so young. We have a picture of him with the rest of the family photos in the family room. He just looks like he belongs with us. I apologize that I can't share his photo until everything is final but I can tell you.....he is SO CUTE!!!! I can't wait to introduce the little man to ya'll. In the meantime, please continue to pray that God wraps His arms around Wynston and whisper in his ear that he is loved. And please pray that court goes smoothly without delay and that we can bring him home before Christmas. That would be a wonderful gift.

Saying Goodbye to Summer Vacation

Well the summer vacation is coming to an end. School starts next week for the girls and I start at a new school. It is an exciting time for us. S starting 3rd grade and R starting 7th grade and I get to work with K-6. We spent a lot of time with family and friends. We went to Great America, spent time in Chicago and Michigan and most of all ....time on the water. It was a relaxing summer. Since summer doesn't officially ends until after Labor Day, we are going to spend as much time in the water until the pool closes and the lake water gets too cold:)
