Carlton, Hannah Grace, Noah and I are happy to announce we have a baby on the way! God is so good to bless us again with a precious child. Our little one will be 12 weeks tomorrow. I am so ready to find out what it is! My gut says "Boy!" and Carlton thinks its a girl, sooooooo... who knows, but God! I will have to wait 8 more LONG weeks to find out! During this pregnancy, I have thought so much about Lily. Its almost like I am pregnant with two! I know it won't be long before our sweet Lily is in our arms. She is going to have so many brother(s) and sister(s) that are going to love her to pieces! Even though she is not "in my belly", I pray for her many times throughout the day. Please keep our new baby in your prayers and continue to pray for our journey to Lily. One specific prayer request: my fingerprints were rejected (very common for women with dry hands! ), please pray that this new set will be accepted. Fingerprints can take a long time and can delay our adoption process. Thank you!
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,the fruit of the womb a reward.4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth.5 Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

My sweet little Hannah Grace has turned into a little dancer. She has really taken to the dance classes she started a couple weeks ago. Her teacher has been really impressed with how quick she has learned. I never knew I had a little toe tapper! Well, except for the fact that the practicing on the kitchen floor is driving me bananas. Noah thinks he can tap too. Its quite funny to see him trying to keep up with her. Boy, he really needs some football lessons, soon. :) Bless his heart, his mommy and sister are too girly. Here are some pictures from her class this week.

Here is a picture from the China Family Reunion. Ya'll always hear me talking about Karla, well, here she is. From Left to Right:Karla, Me and Kimberly. Karla is a god-send. Lifeline has the BEST social workers. Karla is very open and honest and keeps me level-headed. I honestly didn't expect an "employee" to care or love each Lifeline family. Its obvious that her job is not a "job" but a calling from the Lord. She has become such a good friend of mine and Carlton. And next to me is Kimberly, my new friend. We have lots in common, we are both getting a sweet little girl from China. She chose a little girl with a special need, Anna Brooke is ADORABLE!!!!! They will be going to get her really soon. I will post her blog so you can follow along on her journey! Kimberly and I just happen to "run-into" each other at the reunion. I think we were the only Paperchasing family there. So, we immediately had a connection. She and her husband, Jonathan, love the Lord and so our bond is much bigger than our China adoption!
