I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Verse of the day

Finally, a new picture

Mom and Dad are in The Netherlands, on their way to India for the annual mission conference of the ministry they work with. They were able to stop and see Pierre, who is helping to coordinate our adoption.

This picture is from August. Finally, an updated picture of our little girl. Pierre just couldn't figure out how to attach it. Luckily, my dad is a computer guy, so was able to do that for me.

The main update remains the same. Everything is working correctly in the process - it is just taking a long time. Paperwork, especially in a foreign country take a long time. It might go faster if we were working with an organization, but there are not any in America that work with Benin. It is a former French colony. France, and The Netherlands, other French speaking countries are more likely to have agencies that work in Benin.
So, basically, we wait, and hope, and keep a positive attitude. Keep praying.
In the meantime, I am thrilled to have a newer picture of my daughter.
