These last few weeks, we have been finding ways to keep our minds off this adoption process. Don't get me wrong, our hearts are filled with love for Marcus, but this waiting does get to us! The not knowing is probably the hardest part!
Bradyn turned 11 on the 26th, the day we took off for the Black Hills. We had planned to leave at noon, due to rain, ice and snow, we left at 8:30am! We have had this trip planned for months, thinking we would take our little guy along, but hopefully next year!! Last year we started this tradition with Marlin & Paula and their Family. We stayed at a hotel last year and this year we rented a house together!
The house we all rented! It was so nice! We will try to stay there again!

Brynn was such a trooper, we went for 5 hours the 1st day, which it only got up to 13 degrees outside! Burrr!

It was so good for me (us) to get away and take in family time!
*Please pray for little Caleb! His Mommy is a friend of my family! They're family could really use some prayers! Caleb will be 1 in a couple of weeks and is in need of a kidney!! Caleb is just a miracle, God has such a plan for this little boy! He has touched many lives already in his short little life! We seen Caleb a bit ago! Love this little guy! If you have time, please pray for them, and you can check his caring bridge site!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
