A precious little girl

I've not been a very good blogger lately.  Not because I've had nothing to say ... more like I can't seem to get the things that have been stirring in my heart down in writing.

I posted this picture on facebook today.

For a lack of creativity on my part I called the picture "Brothers".   My aunt commented, "Sons".  Moved me to tears.  I will forever be thankful for each of my children.   Forever I will be changed as I have seen how God knits families together.  No words will do those feelings justice.  

We've been busy doing things like going to the dentist... Buche and Burka are some amazing little patients.  Amanda and Hannah go to the dentist tomorrow.  We'll see if they sit as nice :).  I know they won't let me take a picture and post it!

We colored eggs at grandma and grandpas getting ready to celebrate Easter.  Buche and Burka would tell you very loudly that "Jesus is ALIVE!".

We celebrated my brothers birthday.  He's the best brother ever! Sure do love him!

Grace and Greta sang to him.  Grace starts guitar lessons in a week but she looked up on you tube how to play "Happy Birthday".

And, we have some very sweet friends who gave the boys adorable dolls!  They have been named "Burka" and "Buche"...

And are slept with for every nap and night :)

We got new "sleep caps" from www.africasleeps.com.  Love them!

Zachary and Ryan spent a few days with friends in CO skiing and snowboarding.  They sent home this amazing pictures.  Mountains ... they are indeed majestic! And the thought of my son that is ending his Junior year of high school this year makes me cry ...tears of joy ... tears of sadness. He's an amazing young man!

And, while all this is happening there is a deep stirring in my heart.  I'll share just a bit ...

I've mentioned before that our boys were on our agencies "waiting children" list. While we were in Africa for our embassy appt I met a little girl that is on our agency's "waiting children's list"  She gave me a hug and a kiss every time I saw her.  She has a smile that shines bright. She is a precious, precious little girl.  That was almost ten months ago.  She is still on our agencies "waiting children's list".   I am indeed praying for this precious little girl and for a stirring in the hearts of those that are called to be her family.  Join me please?
