Pictures and more Pictures...

Hello friends, it's been awhile. I have been very focused on our LOA, or rather lack of LOA. You see, it's been over 6 months of waiting and waiting and not hearing a single word. Well, that's not entirely true. We have heard many things, just not "THE" thing. As in it's here.

So, we decided to take all the kids and head out for some sunshine and fresh air. A way to forget about it for a day and relax and enjoy. Although, it's not far from our minds, Rachel is our daughter and she WILL be coming home. We look at it as God's way of allowing us to raise the extra money needed for fees and travel.

Do any of ya'll know how hard it is to get five kids to sit still for pictures?? (and smiling and not making silly faces, eyes open ect., ect.)

The kids thought this was a terrible sign and were whispering about it until I explained they meant the rocks that make up a dam, not the other.

This would have been a great picture spot if I knew how to use my SLR of these days I really need to take a class. They do have a studio in town but the cost is more than we can do right now and I know getting Rachel home is so much more important.

Hannah is such a great big sister.

Hang in there!!! Praying you get it soon!!! Waiting 5.5 months for our I-800A approval nearly drove me to crazyville, now we've waited over a month for our LID. I'm with you though, I know Madelyn's my daughter and God will unite us at HIS prefect time.

God bless!!
