"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Summer Dayz

You know how we are early birds...we got to the pool before it was open!
Owen's sweet friend (and our neighbor) Baylor.
They were so cute, but Owen wouldn't cooperate for the picture!
Baylor did a great job posing, look at those lips!
Yesterday was a great day. The boys slept in a little and then we went to the park with our neighbors, Baylor, her brother Hudson and their momma. The weather has really been so nice in the mornings! We packed up lunches and jumped into our swim suits for an early swim before naps!
Blake's schedule has been wonderful! He got home yesterday before lunch and didn't have to go back to work!
Even though we haven't heard anything about our adoption situation and little Miss Sadie Kate, we continue to have peace.
We have no idea if this is going to actually happen.
It's hard to plan on having a baby in the next two weeks when you really know very little.
I know several of you are thinking, "Shouldn't you know more?"
Not really.
That's how adoption rolls.
Each adoption is so different and it really depends on what the birth family wants and how
involved they want you to be.
So, no. We don't know more.
We don't really know what that means besides that we are just trying to be obedient to God and yeild to His plan.
God knows I have serious control issues and this is why He brought me to adoption!
There's nothing that will break those tendencies like, "Hey you might be having a little baby next week, but just wait and see what I do! Don't ask questions, just watch me move!"
We think Brittanie had an OB visit yesterday.
We think they might have set a date for the C-section.
We know our God is great and has a perfect plan.
Please continue to pray for Brittanie today and in the weeks and months to come.
Regardless of what happens, she is going to need much prayer and support.
Until then, we are just trying to enjoy these beautiful HOT summer days.
We are headed to Tulsa tomorrow, so you might not hear anything until next week!

Love you all, we'll keep you posted when we hear something.

MY GOODNESS! Look how much I've missed in the last couple of weeks!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Sadie Kate!!
WHen you told me on the phone that you had a name, but didn't tell me what it was, I just thought you weren't going to announce it yet...so I'm sorry I didn't ask! It is such a pretty name!!
Your faith is inspiring Molly (and Blake). I know you are intentionally tempering your excitement at this point, which I can understand...but I am sure excited for you! This road of adoption has lots of twists and turns and you can't always see what's around the next bend...but you have two bundles of energy to keep you entertained along the way
and that makes things a lot of fun!
We love you all and are praying for Brittanie and Sadie!!
Can't wait to see you.

Hi Molly! I have been following your blog through Robin's! We also adopted through DPAS! Our little angel was born on 2/2/07! I too have issues with control so I know your feelings and I just want you to know that I am praying for you! Oaklee was a drop in so we got a phone call on 2/3/07 asking to show our profile due to more prenatal exposures than listed. We prayed about it and approved it and then on 2/4/07 (Super Bowl Sunday) by the Grace of God became parents to the most beautiful baby boy! Isn't adoption so amazing?! I am so excited to hear of your adventure! Your boys are adorable! :)

Hi there, Laura has been keeping me posted. I LOVE YOUR BLOG! Praying for you and your family and I'm so glad you posted of the pics of the bows-yes they and Blake will not like it but it was too cute to pass up. How can they make such handsome boys and beautiful girls at the same time? Love you
