Ok, I just wanted to say today, that I had NO idea how hard it would be to not buy things for Ava yet, as we do not yet know how old she is.  Every time I shop, I get pulled to the little girl stuff and just have to look, but I just can't feasibly buy anything until after China gives us our official referral for her (with her age).  Whew, Lord, please help me not to go crazy and broke with these little girl things I want for her ....

We have her room ready (and the boys' crib in the attic if we need it :)

Verse for the day:
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." - James 1:27


  1. Love her room! Hang in there Mandy girl!

  2. i didn't even know you all were pursuing adoption!! SO amazing... can't wait to follow this beautiful story and your sweet family:)

  3. Hey Mandy! Love the room also. Isaiah 26:3-4 You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, is the Rock eternal. Praying for you my friend! Love the verse from James!
