Come on let's get praying!

Ruthanne's court case is on tonight to find out if she gets to bring home sweet "Bear." You can go see her post here to find out why it was postponed. Please go visit her blog and let her know you are rooting her on. I love this woman & can't wait to go and visit her, Andrew & sweet "Bear" next summer. I am praying she passes so I can go do a little shopping for her boys!!! Hugs to her & her boys!!!

Just a little off subject! But for a good cause!

(Adela is the on the left. She is the oldest in her family.)

I will be posting about our Christmas craziness later today but wanted to really do a post about a very special girl who has touched our hearts greatly. We sponsor a student to go to school in Guatemala through Mayan Families. I love knowing we are helping a young girl get her education. Young girls tend to drop out of school b/c their families cannot afford to pay for them to attend school and need to help their family with their siblings or making money. I love this organization so much. They make sure we receive updated pictures of her all the time. We also get letters, pictures she draws for us and her report cards so we can keep up with her progress. She asked us to send a letter & pictures which I am working on now. We did a garage sale this summer and used the money to buy her an onvil stove (alot of families cook over fires which is very dangerous) and some baby chicks. It was such a sight seeing her smile in those pictures after receiving both. If any of you would like to help just one child, just one family please consider donating to Mayan Families.

Please pray!

I met Ruthanne via the blog/FB world. She is a wonderful mom to Andrew also adopted from Guatemala. She will find out tomorrow if she passed court (which actually happens while she is sleeping) for her 2nd adoption from Ethiopia for her son named Bear. As a bonus you all can finally see how gorgeous he is. (I already know! Hehe!) I so hope she passes and gets to go pick up that baby. I don't know how she is going to do it raising two boys by herself but she will be rewarded with more love than she ever thought possible.

Happy Belated Halloween

I promised Hannah I would get these up so she can see Cameron in all his glory. We went trick-or-treating with Pappaw T. (my dad) this year. He came down & had a lot of fun watching Cameron. We had just woke Cameron up before we left and he wasn't quite awake yet. He was a little shy at first but then figured out that he was getting candy & was all about it. He would say "Twik Tweet" and "Tank You" every time. Sometimes he would go back for more & of course they gave him more because he is so cute!

Fun with Friends Again!

(Yeah, they were done with pictures.)

(Driving Phia.)

(Looking at a plane together!)

(Monkey being a Monkey.)

We went to the Louisville Zoo a couple of weeks ago with Hannah, Dmitry & Cameron's girlfriend Sophia. It was so cute watching them together. It has been a few months since they saw each other and usually they are really shy for awhile. It took them about 15 minutes and they were all about each other. Sophia was mothering Cameron and he kept demanding to hold her hand. He would get upset if she would walk away from him. A few times when she was mothering him Cameron would yell at her "Bop (stop) Phia". They were actually having conversations together. They have really grown up since our first play date. I can't wait to see how their relationship develops. You can go to Hannah's blog to see more pictures. I just have a point & shoot and can't catch them quite as good!
