Catching up!!

It has been a long time since I last blogged. Sometimes......okay, every time.... God has to drag me through the mud to get me back to where I need to be... eyes focused on Him.

Here's what is going on:

We were submitted to Embassy on September 8th. We just got the email today from the Embassy stating that they wanted additional documents. How long with this take? I have no clue! Are these documents even something that they are able to get? I have no clue! 

I am not going to lie, this is beyond frustrating. Knowing that Caleb is legally ours and all we need is his visa and yet we are still jumping through hoops. I don't understand!!!!! but here is the kicker, I don't have too. The truth of the matter is, if God wanted Caleb to be home, then he would be. Its not like any of this caught Him by surprise. That is where Faith steps in. It is by Faith that we ask God to do the impossible, It is By Faith that we cry out in anger, in heartbreak knowing He cares even more then we do. It is By Faith that we pick ourselves up and walk in Obedience knowing that He means what He says. It is By Faith that we pray and praise, pray and praise some more, and then ask God to help us when we can't pray and praise anymore. It is By Faith that I know Caleb will be home sooner then anyone thinks :)

If you would join us in prayer, we would really appreciate it <3

It has been exactly 2 months since I last held  my boy :( I could get all sappy on you and tell you how much it hurts but instead we are celebrating today, because.......

Today is my precious little girls 7th Birthday!!!! Oh my how the time has flown! I call her my little momma. She is so caring and wants nothing more then to help someone do anything. She just wants to help! Sometimes to much ;)

We are having her and her brothers (his birthday is next week) party tomorrow, so today we just hung out in our jammies and did what girls do. You  know.. Paint each others nails :)

Working hard on her toes

All done! I did her hands and she did her toes!

Super fun!
 Most of you may all ready know, but daddy has a special thing that he does with his girls. Since their first birthday he gets them flowers. He wanted to get them flowers that no one else would give them. He has a special flower for each girl.  Hubby gets Brianna sunflowers.  So every year on her birthday no matter if he is working, he gets her flowers.

Daddy with his oldest girl!

I did not ask her to do this. She loves her daddy!
I just love my hubbys heart.

Happy Birthday my beautiful Brianna. The Lord has gifted you with a beautiful servants heart. Even at your age you seek out kids and make sure that you have introduced yourself and ask them to play with you. You truly love them just for them and you look past everything else. I am excited to see how God will use that gift as you get older. 
                    Blessed beyond measure that the Lord would allow me to be your mother <3 <3
