My quick 10 minute update :)

My amazing Aunt, whom I love very much, e-mails back and forth with me (she lives in Hawaii so as much as I'd LOVE to chat in person this often, it's just not feasible).  She is a great support and I can tell her anything knowing that she "gets it".  She's such a huge blessing in my life!  Anyhow, she always makes sure to send me quick 10 minute updates, as she calls them, so that I know she is thinking of us and is keeping up with us, which is uplifting and encouraging.  Today it's my turn for a 10 minute update, which I will share with all of you :).

I had e-mailed our district senator, as well as the state senator, about our adoption and the time it is taking to get an approval.  I was very encouraged to hear back from our district senator today.  He said that the adoption seemed like a wonderful opportunity for our family and that he is going to see what his office can do.  It might not have been a concrete answer, but it is for sure a step in the right direction! YEAH!

I also just had to share what my friend Sue did for us, because it touched me so immensely.  This weekend while we were at my parent's cabin, I got an e-mail from her saying that she has been in prayer for us and our adoption.  She also said that felt God laying it on her heart to e-mail our Governor as well as Senator McCain about our adoption approval situation.  Isn't that amazing?!?!?!  I am so touched that she would take the time out of her day to advocate for our family.  What an amazing woman she is!  I am blessed to have her as a friend!

I pray that we will have more good news to update you with in the near future, but for now, I am thankful to have a renewed sense of encouragement and hope! 

Before I run (man am I EXHAUSTED), here are a few pictures from the county fair in Flagstaff that we went to over labor day weekend.

My sweet girl in the Ergo

Conner and our newly adopted third child, as we like to call her,  Kyla


Conner on the kid's roller coaster.  He kept throwing his hands up in the air and smiling... adorable! 


Madi and her papa.  Madi sure does love her papa, and she talks about him all the time!


Papa and Conner on the Ferris wheel.... Conner's first Ferris wheel ride ever!

Madi and my mom on the train... sadly the only ride Madi was big enough for, besides the carousal!


We had a blessed and wonderful weekend with family!
