Prayer Request

One of my favorite websites that I check daily is and while checking it tonight, I saw a prayer request I could easily post here. Although I don't know the family involved, I DO know the power of God. Please check out the family website and see why little Brea and her little heart needs your prayers. If you don't have time to go to their site, just send up a quick prayer that God perform a miracle on her so that she doesn't have to be put on a transplant list. GOD IS GOOD!

Happy 8 Month Anniversary!

Happy 8 month anniversary to us! According to China's records, we have officially been waiting eight whole months on our Abby girl! Right now, the timeframes say the wait is 16 months so as of today, half of our wait is over! Let's pray that the wait doesn't continue to climb (though the rumor is that it will).

Send up a big "Thank you God" for helping us all (and that includes you) get through eight months of waiting! Pray for our daughter's safety, surroundings, and health.

We can't wait to meet you Abrielle!

A Murder, a Morgan, and a Dragon

So we have NOT updated in a couple of weeks, and I'm afraid that some of you have stopped reading the blog! ACK! So below are some pics and quick text about what we've been up to! If we get ambitious we'll use the photo program we used last time and modify this post. But for now, here's the scoop.

  • We went to a Murder Mystery Dinner at our neighbor/friends' house. It was SO much fun! The Reader's Digest version is that we got dressed up in circa 1930's garb, took on another personality, had dinner, and solved a murder. This game is not for the shy...and you can see why by the pictures. It was a total blast and we hope to host our own murder someday soon! (By the way, neither Tony (Donnie) nor I (Allie) were the murderers!)Donnie and Ally

  • We also got to spend some more time with the Brian and Nancy Williamson and their daughter Morgan. The picture shows just how absolutely adorable she is...especially in her Colts jersey! We just love her mean face, and we love spending time with all of them!

  • Finally, we went to our local adoption group's Chinese New Year Festival a couple of weeks ago. We had a great time with Chris, Sarah, Amaya, and Paige too! We enjoyed food, crafts, and even a dragon!Chinese New YearDragon

Needless to say, we have had a great start to 2007! Now if we'd just get our Abby-girl home, life would be PERFECT!
