They're all grown up!

Okay - no more catch up! Here we are in the present (all grown up!).

These are two of my most favorite pictures. Austin climbed up on our neighbors bike and Logan decided to "hitch" a ride on the back!
And this is them "Giving Kisses" while playing on the deck last week.
We are so thrilled to have happy, healthy and growing boys - but boy, those few months between babyhood and toddler days just flew by us! It seems everyday they are doing something new, making a great big discovery and amazing us in so many different ways.

And I've been extra weepy, wondering if this is just how its always going to be. When I think back to the days of waiting for them, many times wondering if they were ever going to make it home into my arms, I'm just overcome with gratitude to God for blessing us to incredibly.

I tuck them in at night and still marvel that they're actually here and that they'll still be here in the morning. They now run to me all the time with big grins on their faces saying, "Mama, My mama, my mamma!" - if that don't bring a girl to her knees! I get kisses through out the day for no reason and I get to chase two little boys around and around for giggles and fun all day long. I'm livin' a dream!

And maybe I'm so emotional because of Guatemala 5000 - many of you are fellow adoptive parents, but those who check in here for updates on the twins, you can read (and DO something) about Guatemala 5000 here; http://www.jcics.org/. The president of Guatemala is stating that he will not let any adoptions be completed after Jan 1, 2008. This includes all those IN PROCESS!!

Please, please pray for these babies and children and their families. Pray for all of those involved to have soft hearts that focus on the well being of the children and let them come home!
