We planted flowers a few days ago but I haven't had a chance to post but this was a good time anyway because we have a few things to talk about that's "Blooming"

Lauren picked out all of the flowers and then helped dig the holes, put in the potting soil, placed the flowers and then watered the flowers. She was so proud of herself and had such a great time doing it. In the picture with her lip sticking out, she's not pouting that's how hard she was concentrating on the task :)

Part 2 of my post is about our next adoption. We have been taking classes with DFACS for 5 weeks now and only have 2 more to go before they come to do our homestudy, we have asked for a child in the newborn to 2 range and either gender. Once our homestudy is complete they will send it to each and every county in our state and then we'll be matched with a child. Our wait may be a little long because of our requested age but we feel this would be the best thing for us and after talking to Lauren's doctor they feel a younger child would be best for her also so we are excited about what God is going to do in our family over the next few months. Lauren changes daily on if she wants a brother or a sister but she is excited none the less. Pray for us if you can that this transition will go as smooth as possible for all of us involved.I'll post updates as they come also but for now you know all that's " Blooming" around here :)

Stacie: I have represented many friends and clients who have done the Mapp training and adopted through DFCS and it is a WONDERFUL thing. I am very excited for the three of you and for the fourth member of your family (name unknown for now) who will soon have a family to call his/her own. Much love, Debbie

Well, you know how excited we are about the blooming as well! We can't wait to have another baby to spoil, not that we have done that to Lauren or anything:).

my verification word was extreme
at least it wasn't bull:)

Gardening - we've been doing a lot of that too! And it's fun!

Of course, we will be praying for a smooth transition and adoption! It is exciting to watch a family grow!!!!

How cute is that little tongue sticking out while Lauren concentrates on planting! LOL!

Seems like things are moving along quite nicely with your next adoption. How exciting! I don't know why it's taken me forever to finish things up. I just need to get this "Dear Birthmom" letter finished. Will you need to write one of those with your program?
