Referral Day.....2 years ago today

Two years ago today, we received our referral of a beautiful little girl, living in Yulin City, Guangxi, China. She was 10.5 months old. Wow! Where does the time go. I can remember that day like it was yesterday. I immediately printed her picture, after we received it and went to Jacob's school and pulled him out of class to see his new sister. He was so excited that he ran the picture back to his room and showed it off to all his friends. You could hear the excitment all over the school. Wow....Thank you God for giving us our precious daughter. I look back at all the pictures and can't believe how much she has grown, learned and changed. We love her so much and are so blessed to have her in our family. Here is our post from last year if you want to look back at it.

Confession time

I haven't posted any new pictures because my new camera wasn't working correctly. Well, I finally called Kodak and he walked me thru some troubleshooting and even gave me a case number and address where to send my camera. After I hung up the phone with him, I continued to mess with the camera and it finally started working again. I fixed it myself. You know, if you put the batteries in correctly, you will not have to waste so much time on the phone with the Kodak man and miss a lot of great picture moments. I am loosing it slowly, but surely. Thought it was a funny though. More pictures to come, next week after I return from my trip. I am going out of town with 35 women to Atlanta to a Women of Faith Conference and will not return until late Saturday evening.

Work Followup

I posted this in the comments of Work post. I thought I would also post here to give you a followup. Everything went great! Makes me miss teaching. Hopefully they will have a position open next year(in preschool dept) and I can be back to work again and Jacob and Joleigh will be at same school with me, same schedule, etc. Thanks for asking everyone. Pray with me for a position to open or for now, more substituting opportunities.

Before we adopted Joleigh, I taught K3 in the preschool department at a private school. I took a leave to stay home with her until she was old enough to go and was fully potty trained. Well, she is fully potty trained, but not old enough. Joleigh is convinced that she wants to attend school with her brother Jacob. Tomorrow, I will go in to substitute at the school and it will be my first work experience since before we left for China. Joleigh doesn't know that I am going to school or she will have a fit. I am excited, though. Wish Chip luck. They will have an exciting day on the farm.
