I don't know how many of you watch American Idol--personally this is a certain show that our family will not miss! We follow along from the auditions all the way to the end, making our own predictions on who will win! Well, Maci seems to have really gotten into it this year and is already joining in with the rest of us poking fun at the contestants! The other night we were watching the show where they picked the final 36 contestants. When a certain Tatiana Del Toro made it through she kind of went a little nutso! She was screaming "Oh my gosh, Oh my gosh" and was acting just a little bit crazy. Well, Maci puts her sunglasses on and begins acting like Tatiana! This video is the funniest...I'm sure it will make you laugh out loud just like me and Donnie did!

I am asking you all to be prayer warriors for our family. We are at the point in our adoption process to do nothing but wait on God's timing for a referral. "His Hands Taiwan' does not like families to progress beyond this point until they have received a referral. If we get too far in the process we may risk wasting money if the referral does not come before the I-600 or other documents expire. As babies become available "His Hands" prays over all of their applications and places the child with the family they feel God is laying on their hearts. Right now "His Hands" have no referrals to make.

The hardest part of the journey is waiting. But we are faithful that God's timing will be perfect! Please pray for peace for our family as we wait for a referral. I am also asking that you pray that babies will become available to be placed into the arms of their "Forever Families".

I received this scripture from "The His Hands Team" and it will definitely be one that I cling to as we wait. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5 & 6

Thank you for your prayers!

I've been having fun editing some photos on a website Peyton showed to me. It's called Picnik. These are just a few that I have done.
