Zoom! and New Numbers

My super cute Hello Kitty bike helmet :)

"Look at me now"

We are so proud of Miss Emily!  Today for whatever reason she just took off on her trike.  The reason this is such a big deal is up to this point she had been struggling with pedaling.  She would get frustrated because she couldn't get it started.  Today we had really nice warm weather so we brought out the trike, buckled on her  super cute helmet and then she sat down and took off.  We all laughed.  She kept saying "look at me now".  Daddy added a little bell to ring as well. She decided she wanted to ride it on our walk with our dogs.  She went further than we both had anticipated. Great job Emily! It truly is the little things in life that are so special. The other thing we noticed is how much taller she is and she has pretty much outgrown the trike. We're thinking a bike with training wheels is in her near future. 

In other news.....
Yes, that is right folks we are rejoicing as we are now #32 on the baby girl list.  Praise the Lord.  Our agency had SEVEN referrals given out within about a weeks time.  We have several families travelling for court and travelling for Embassy appts to bring their child(ren) home.  The excitement is palpable.  I love looking at the pics of the families in Ethiopia meeting their children and reading on blogs about the homecomings.  It truly is amazing how God can orchestrate such a beautiful way to bring families together.  It's all in His timing and according to His plan.  Love it!!  Ok, I admit I don't do well with the waiting part however I DO trust in the Lord so His grace covers me for those moments of agonizing how come it is taking so long.  Congratulations to all the families this month. Praying you each of you safe travels, bonding and good health.
