A Little Bit of This....

With Anna having a stomach bug and Timothy fully casted, I'm not getting out a whole lot.

I will say we have plans for us ALL to get out soon though and for this bunch with Cabin Fever...YEA!!!!

It's time.

Until then, I thought I'd share with you one of the sweet pictures of our girls that a friend of ours created.  I just loved the comparison of the older pictures and the newer ones.

Hope~Glory  (currently two years old)
I look at her picture and I tend to think of her as Hope, instead of Glory (though both
are her names).  She looks like a Hope, don't you think?

Grace~Victory (currently three and a half years old)
It's been close to two years since the last picture was taken.  My heart soars 
at seeing what she looks like now.

I can't stop looking at these pictures.  My head can't
get around the blessing that God has given us in these girls.  

The kids are so excited, the little mamas especially.
Though the boys will teach them to love mud and roughhousing (and cars, Gabe says). 

My stomach is filled with butterflies.
We are almost there girls!!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We still have $11,000-$12,000 to raise!

Ways to Give:
1.  LifeSong is still accepting tax deductible donations on our behalf, even though the matching grant is met.   You can also mail a check to them with our family name and number in the memo line (it can be found in "My Story" in the link below).


2.PayPal- You can send money through PayPal "Friends and Family" to our email address 1thomkat (at) verizon (dot) net 
No money will be taken out and every penny will go toward our adoption!

3. You can mail a check directly to us.  It will be placed in a separate adoption account immediately.  You can email us at the above email and we will send our address.
 
4.  Shopping with a Purpose~Two lovely people, while we were wading through Timothy's surgery, started a fundraiser for our family.  If you'd like to check it out on Facebook, you can click the link below.  The sale starts today through the 15th.

Please Pray...
*For Timothy's complete healing...and that he has walking and running in his future (smile).
*For Grace and Hope, that they are healthy, loved on, and protected.  Please pray that they dream of us and attach quicker than ANYONE could imagine.
*That, IF God Wills, we receive the waiver we've requested.  Adoption fees are often not arbitrary, but pay for families and children's needs.  We pray that only if this will not bring any hardship, that we may receive it the waiver.
*That we hear from the three grants we have yet to hear from.  I sent an email yesterday to see if we missed something during the surgery.  We did hear from one (that they had not tried to communicate with us at this point).  Please pray we receive at least one grant.  It would help TREMENDOUSLY!
*Please also pray for Thomas and I.  Please pray we can use this time before travel to gain physical strength.  We have two more little ones and really need to focus.  We have several physical needs for the girls, but strengthening our bodies comes before every one.

Thank you friends!!!

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
