The circus and the waiting.....

My parents asked us to go to the circus with them last weekend...  This was Evan's 2nd circus experience, and I think it's safe to say he loved this one more than the last.... 

The popcorn bucket was almost as big as him!

Enamored by all the animals and tricks!

For all of you who may be wondering where we are with our adoption- We are STILL waiting on the immigration document we need in order to submit our dossier and be officially waiting. To say we are frustrated is to put it mildly. We have been flat-out lied to several times that the form was in the mail and on it's way to us only to find out last night that our file hasn't even been processed and was just sitting on someone's desk. Thankfully, we have someone working on it now who we are confident will get it taken care of... I never would have guessed that I would be more emotional during this adoption process than while I was pregnant with Evan, but I definitely am (even in just the 4 months or so we've been on this roller coaster!). As hard and emotional as it has been, we know that God has a plan in all of this. He has our child already picked for us and we are trying to remember that it shouldn't matter what number we are on the waiting list, but it's still hard sometimes. He knows what number we need to be on that list in order to match up with our daughter... Your prayers are much appreciated as we wait and learn more about resting in Him and His PERFECT timing...


  1. Oh no! I'm sorry to hear about your immigration troubles. That is waaaay frustrating, I'm sure. We don't have ours yet either. (Not that that makes you feel any better.) :/ We'll be praying for both of our papers to come fast!

  2. I just love that picture of him, grinning from ear to ear! Too cute!
    Sorry to hear about your paperwork.But my fingers are crossed it will come through soon.
