Crazy Life

I know I say this everytime I go a few days without posting something, but our life is just too crazy. My nephews started basketball so we've gone to a couple of games, plus bowling and work and now gymnastics. Who really has time to work??

Last week, Kaleaha had an accident while she was at Gran's house and we had to take her to the doctor on Monday. 2 antibiotic shots, a Tetnus shot and 10 days of antibiotics, plus unlimited daily treatments... Not a great week.

Then we were sitting at dinner the other night talking with some friends who are expecting a baby. Let me preface this part by saying that people have been asking us left and right lately if we're going to add to our family. Ron and I had already decided that we would not pursue any additions, but if something fell into our laps, that would be fine. So we're having a nice peaceful (with a four year old) dinner with our friends talking about their baby and my cell phone rings.

It's a call from a close family friend who has information about a girl who wants to place her baby for adoption with us. She's heard about us from a mutual friend. WHOA! I was almost speechless. That's so far away from anything we were even thinking about until we started discussing it later and realized that maybe that's the reason for all of the questions about family lately. We both are praying for all of this to work out however it the Lord means for it to, but WOW!!

Did I mention that this baby is due in 6 weeks??????

Then, I got sick on Thursday and have not felt human until last night. It's been a crazy week!!

Stay tuned for the next installment of "How Our World Turns". Keep us in your prayers, we're going to need them.

That is so crazy! It is awesome that they would call and ask you when you weren't even thinking about it. That right there tells you that you are an amazing family! Let us know what you guys decide. We will be praying for you!

It's so good to meet you. I just read an adoption story to my kids for our morning devotional not twenty minutes ago. It's fate, I'm telling you.
