Kids Fair = good time!

A couple of weeks ago we ventured out to the Cardinals stadium in Glendale for the annual Kids Fair. It was quite a drive but the boys had so much fun! There were so many people inside that we could only move with the crowd! But, the boys were hooked when we first walked in and saw Darth Vader and the Storm Troopers - it was the best day of their young lives. The best part for us was when Brayden, with all the confidence in the world, walked up to Darth Vader and stuck out his hand to shake hands. It took Darth Vader by surprise and he just stood there for a second and then finally put his hand in Brayden's. It was great to see the HUGE smile on Brayden's face - I've never seen him look happier! Unfortunately we weren't ready with the camera so we didn't catch that but here a few of the pictures we did take.

It was a long day but so much fun!

Nope, not the right time

I guess the title says it all. We were not chosen to be the adoptive family for the little 5 yr old boy. As much as I wasn't sure about this being the right thing I was pretty disappointed when I got the call. Oh well, right? What else can I say...I guess it will happen when it's meant to happen, hopefully.

Brayden asked again tonight when his sister is coming. Well, soon I hope. Then he asks me, "Did you ask Heavenly Father if she can come now?" I tell him, "Of course" and he wonders, "What is taking so long? Can she hurry?"

Oh, my dear boy, I wish she would hurry too. We'll keep asking!

Is it time??

Remember a few posts ago I shared that we are hoping to adopt a child or children? Well, I received a call yesterday that we have been "matched" with a child. He is 5 1/2 and has been in foster care since he was 3 and, from what we have been told, a sweet little guy. There are also several other families that are also being considered so on Friday there is a meeting where all the agencies with families will meet together and basically "sell" their family to find the right home for the kiddo.

We are really excited since it feels like we have been waiting for so long but this is definitely not what we were expecting. We had originally said we could take a sibling group of 3 with at least one girl - we so want a girl - and we just aren't sure if this is the right thing for us. We are praying about it and are getting mixed feelings...sometimes it's so hard to decipher our feelings and what we are being told to do.

So, please pray for us right now, we could use all the prayers we get right now! Please pray that the right decision will be made for this little boy and for us. Whether that means he is placed with us or not he needs a good home! Thanks everyone! We will know by Friday and I'll post the outcome!
