BIG day

Abby and A before bedtime.  Yes, Abby has pants on her head.  Don't ask.

Hunter LOVED Faber.  He was in heaven throwing balls off the back of the couch!

Precious family.  Chosen by God to adopt.

Abby took this one before heading to the airport.

Today was a big day in our family.  My brother, sister in law and their oldest child headed off on a 14 hour plane ride to South Korea.  They will be meeting their new SON on Tuesday at 9:00 am and will be bringing him HOME with them this weekend.  This has been a work in progress for the last 20 months.  He is 22 months old right now and has been living with a foster mother and father. I love what Meredith said to me this week.  She said, "I am just ready for the unknown to be known."  My brother and his whole family have done all they can to prepare for this week.  Please pray for them as they walk down this "unknown" road for a while. 

 What a blessing they will be to this little boy.  He will be loved unconditionally and he will be taught about the Lord.  He will have older sisters and a brother who will be great examples and love him well.
I am so excited for them and what the Lord is doing in their family and welcome my new nephew into our CRAZY family.  He has no idea what he is in for!  : )

I love this! I can't wait to "hear" more about their trip. Love that they are taking their oldest with them. What a memory for her as well. I am crying thinking about it all. Yay! Praying for them.

I'm so very excited for their family, and I can't wait to hear all about it! On another note, it's funny that I don't have to ask about the pants on head...hmmm.

That is so incredible. I will be praying for them, for sure! Love Ab's pants on the head. Reminds me of me when I was a little girl!
