Turn into THIS so fast?
Let me introduce you to the "happiest baby boy in the world"..... Sweet Baby Cash
Yesterday Sugar (a.k.a Cash) turned "one" and last week-end we had a pumpkin party to celebrate. Everyone wore their costumes and we had a ball. This little fellow takes the cake for being the happiest baby we have ever had. He has these great big dimples that just make you want to eat him up every time he smiles, which is most of the time. He is such a blessing to our family. You can probably tell this mama is crazy in love with this sweet little man.
We had some very cute pumpkins by the end of the evening....
The week-end of celebration continued Sunday at the pumpkin patch. Levi and Lilly probably enjoyed this day the most. Inflatables, hayrides and ice cream... what more can a kid want?
.... and at the end of the day Maggie took this picture of myself, Lexie and Kayla (our "other" daughter/Lexie's bff) and I had to share it..... notice how beautiful and vibrant these two sweet (young) darlings look, AND how absolutely worn out mama looks. These girls worked very hard all week-end helping make sweet baby Cash's first birthday very special. Thank you girls.... I love you both more than you know : )
I thank Jesus everyday that I get to be mom to this amazing bunch of kids..... and what a special blessing Cash is to all of us. We love you sweet baby boy!

Paypal experts, I need your help. I have had two people ask me if I received their donation through our blog lately and unfortunately, I did not. Other donations have come through with out any problem and t-shirt orders have been successful. Any idea what might be going on?
God has been so faithful in providing the funds to make this adoption happen and I pray that He is protecting even our paypal account.
If you have suggestions, feel free to comment or e-mail me.

The last item on the list for Dossier documents just arrived in our mail box..... our passports are HERE! Well, they are sorta the last thing. Our home study has not been written yet but that is out of my control. However, we had the most amazing social worker ever and he asked us to give him 2 weeks from now to get it written. That's pretty quick from what I hear, so of course we said, "that sounds great". We had an immediate connection with him and it was a friendship from the first few minutes of the first visit. I was a bit concerned that we would need to convince a social worker that we weren't out of our ever loving minds for wanting to adopt a baby when we already have 7 bio kids. No need convincing this guy..... he totally "got us". He has adoptive children so it just makes sense to him. Such a God thing! Although, I do need to thank my sister-in-law for hooking us up. Thank you Sonia!

Last, if you having been praying the prayer, "God, break our hearts for what breaks yours", then I think you are going to love our new t-shirts. They are going to be so cool and we should have them by the end of this week. Obviously, the proceeds will be used to help us bring our baby girl home from Ethiopia. I will post a picture and all the details about them as soon as they arrive.

While we were at the beach, my mom feel in love with these shoes. But, the story behind them is even better than the shoes.
Watch this video and then check out the on-line store.
That is amazing! So many entrepreneurs would never think of giving up so much of their profit to benefit children in need. Thank the LORD this man has a heart for the least of these. Mom tried on several pairs and thought they were very comfortable. He offers, men's, ladies, and youth..... so, if you need a pair of shoes (or just want a pair), these you don't have to feel guilty about purchasing because you are also supplying a precious barefoot child in a developing country with a brand new pair of shoes. I love that!!!! BTW, Mom the pair you were looking for are in the mail. After all of your help with the kids, the least thing I can do is buy you a pair of shoes. The best part of the deal...... a sweet child is also about to get a brand new pair of shoes.
Lately, several people have asked me where they could find really cute adoption/orphan care shirts. Well, I think
this one takes the cake right now. I got to meet these girls at an adoption conference last October and they have the most amazing hearts of any momma I think I've ever met. Their on-line store has lots of great shirts, caps and gifts. You can find them
HERE. Again, your purchase feeds an orphan.
