SNAPPING... ***Edited***

...Out of it.

Ok, so....we're snapping out of it. Hope springs eternal and it occurred to me that perhaps a shiny new post on the blog may be a good idea.

Hey, we have A LOT to be thankful for. We just celebrated ten (10!!!) years of marriage. Wha? For real? No way. 10 years? What an amazing 10 years. Here's to amazing things in the next 10!

We have a ton of "family" loving on us and praying and being wonderful.

We have a court date and some seriously wonderful travelling families offering to take seriously precious time from their travel itineraries to get some photos (and maybe video!) of our little Koko. Wow. Really, wow.

Michael Phelps and Nastia Liukin are excellent diversions from adoption uncertainty.

And...a little family we know got some great news! Click here!

So, it's not all gloomy, even though I don't think we will ever be fond of the kind of rain that creates it's own entire season.

Someday we will be with Koko...

...someday when it's time.

For now, we will simply share Koko's tiny hands and feet with you, brought to us all by the Kennedy's. (THANK YOU KENNEDY'S!)

Still praying for you guys. The wait is hard, but I think once we're able to hold our kiddos, we won't think about this wait again! We'll be so happy to finally be holding them :)

Happy Anniversary! (late like ususal...card on way, sealed with love)...it can't be 10 years ago I walked my little girl down that isle and gave her hand away, (but still have her heart!). There IS no more beautiful sight than those tiny hands and feet...thanks for sharing them. We love you both. Dad and Billie

Glad to read this...we are still trying to snap out of it ourselves and make ourselves enjoy life during the wait?? if that makes any sense... our kids started school today and life is busy again so i hope that october gets here quickly!

OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH Chad. Exactly how long do you think it will take for Koko to wrap you right around that perfect little finger?!?!? Oh, wait...I think it's already in progress!! Susan, can you even imagine those precious fingers twirling your hair to fall asleep, and you kissing those darling toes. So much to anticipate from such tiny features. Thanks for sharing!

Count down to Oct! Pictures to enjoy for us too! Hood2Coast this weekend! Miss seeing you both. I need your anniversary date because I obviously don't have it on my calender! I also need your email address cause I ain't got it :) Could you guys meet us in Disneyland in a few weeks? We really wanna see you! 15th-19th :)
