"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Heading Out

The packages (Anna Grace & AJ) have been delivered safely into their Po-Po's arms and now I am just finishing up the last minute packing.

Kai was beside himself with excitement about SeaWorld. I think he told everyone who's crossed his path the last two days where he was going.

I checked the weather and was hoping for a typical hot and muggy Florida day so that he could get drenched by Shamu, but alas, he'll be instead wearing a jacket since the high will be 60. Oh well. That's ok! I know he's still gonna have a blast.

I have lots of do and probably won't be going to bed until close to 2:00 a.m. to be up by 5:30, so I'm keeping this short.

Thank you all for the prayers and a big thank you to the Orlando families (especially all the HFS families) that have emailed offering their help and of course, to Po-Po and Ayi for watching our other babies. I am humbled and blessed.

God is holding us tight in His grip! I feel it.....BIG!!!!

As promised, here are some pictures of our boy celebrating his 3rd Forever Family Day! I'll post from the RMH (Ronald McDonald House) when we arrive tomorrow evening.

Enjoy the cuteness!
