LOA, Operation Christmas Child & Halloween

Here’s a photo of our Letter of Acceptance that we FINALLY received on Monday and returned, so it should be on it’s way to China! The title says “Letter Seeking Confirmation from Adopter”. So basically they want to know if we still want her. Like there’s any question!!!


Yesterday the boys and I spent a couple of hours volunteering at the Operation Christmas Child drop-off center in Starkville. This is the 3rd or 4th year we’ve done this, and we all LOVE it! We collected and boxed for shipping close to 400 shoe boxes yesterday. The coolest part is that all of the volunteers stop and pray over the boxes every time someone drops new boxes off. The boxes are also all prayed over again at the distribution centers, and hopefully prayed over by the individuals and groups who packed them initially. Such a small things to do to impact the life of a child. Go here for more info on how to pack a box and a place near you to drop them off. You can drop boxes off thru next Monday. Here are photos from yesterday.

And finally our Halloween photos ( a little late). I’m a little bit stressed trying to get ready for the holidays and for Rachel and still make time for school. So my computer time is suffering.
