Hi everyone!!!!

I am so sorry that I have been a bad blogger lately!  I am so happy to see that I have a few more followers and I haven't even been blogging!  LOL

Much is going on here.  As I said previously I started the new job.  And I love it!  It is such a good fit for me.  A much more urban area, and one that is on the "up-swing".  This poor city has gotten a bum-rap and folks are working hard to turn it around.  I am proud to be a part of the process.

KJ is growing so much and so fast it seems.  He says so many words and we can't keep up with him!  Here's a pic of him from our family portrait session...

I will post the family ones later.  I haven't sent out our Christmas cards yet (oops) and I don't want to offer a preview of them. ;)

Ah, and on the adoption front.  That's what folks really want to know about, right?  The match we had last month did not happen.  They did choose us, but mom ended up parenting.  We were actually very happy about it.  She should be with her mom and we were glad that C figured out a way to make that happen.  I still hear from her and she keeps me up to date on how little S is doing.

We have another potential match again happening right now.  It was a referral from our attorney of a young woman who called one of our attorney's other clients.  Because the child will be African American the couple that she originally called were not open to this.  So... that's where we come in.  Our attorney will be sending her some paperwork tomorrow and I have spoken with her a few times already.  She is due next month.  (YIKES!) So please pray for her and for us.  If this is what the Lord wants for her child (adoption) than pray things go smoothly.  And if there is a way for her to parent, pray even harder that this happens.

And on top of all this... it's Christmas next week!!! Ho ho ho... ;)
