They seem pretty excited! They are always bringing up "baby" Charlie and having another brother. I'm not sure that they understand that he won't be a baby, but that will come! I witnessed the SWEETEST moment every a few weeks ago... We had given AC a picture of Charlie to look at, and she found a few more and just sat by Kate, showing her the pictures. She explained that this was, "baby Charlie and he has no mommy and daddy so we are going to go to China on the big airplane and bring him home! He's my little brudder!" They were just looking at the pictures and giving them kisses.... soooo sweet.
Speaking of the girlies, they have been pretty busy lately! They were gone a couple days last week with Mom, Mia, and Mrs. Tracey in the mountains! They stayed two nights in a cabin (or cabinent as Booie would say) and just had a ball! I have a few pictures to share from that (yes, Mom took the camera!!!)
We also went to lunch at Chickfila with Jeanette and her boys! They are traveling soon to go get their little Sara Beth FINALLY! So we had a nice little celebration lunch. We also ran into Lainie's family, which was fun! Lainie and AC lived in the same room at their orphanage, so it was very special to finally meet them in "real" life!
As for the adoption front, we are still at a stand still in the homestudy, which has been very frustrating. It looks like our first homestudy visit won't be until Aug. 20... :( PLEASE pray along with us that God would work miracles and allow our dossier to be to China by Oct. 17 (3 months from the day our PA was dated)! That's our deadline... it can be extended, but we are praying that we can somehow make it. Right now, it seems impossible, but we we serve a God who NOTHING is impossible with!
Thank you so much for all your comments and encouragement. It means soo much to us :)
