A couple pictures and a couple thoughts . . .



So ... here it is, another Monday. Here is ND that means another cold, windy and snow-on-the-ground Monday. Snow is fun in November, December, January and if you stretch it ... can be fun in February. But March? .... not so fun. I'm ready for TULIPS!

Wish I could show you pics of all our precious children, but since we have yet to make it to our court date ... I'll have to settle for showing you four of them. I still kind of chuckle when I realize the "number" of children we'll have. I think we're going to make it to the prestigious title of "mini-mega" family. Mega would be like 10 and we're only half way there, so we'll graduate at the "mini-mega" size. :)

Anyway, Easter was a reflective/somber time for me. It just so clearly explains the "why" behind all that is going on in our lives. To think about what God did for us, by sending his ONLY son ... that He would care THAT much for me ... it's so hard to comprehend. Jesus is the absolute foundation for why we went on this adoption journey yet again. And while I am about to burst open with anticipation and joy of meeting our next child ... and pouring out my love to them .... it's only a fraction of what God offers to us, every day.

Oh, your kids are so beautiful! I feel the same way about Easter -- reflective, humbled, amazed. God is so GOOD! Just think, next year your mini-mega will be all together in their Easter finest. What joy that will be!
