BIG NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To be completely fair to my daughter, I first need to tell how the big day for Mrs. Marci and her Mr. Ben went.
They were married on Saturday! It rained and was pretty cold. It was to be held outside at the gazebo where they first met many years ago. They were both attendants in my husband's daughter's wedding! Then...Ben asked her to marry him at that same gazebo...where Roger asked ME to marry HIM! So...they had hoped that it would stop raining so that they could add that special place to their most special day.
My dad, aka...Papoo...was to marry them and at noon, he and my mom prayed that it would stop raining and IT DID!!!!!!!!!!! (it was still pretty cold...but that's ok....)The pictures are beautiful and as soon as I can, I want to post some of them! Papoo gave glory to God after the wedding. He is soooo sweet! (I meant my dad is sweet...well, God is sweet, too...but I meant my dad....never mind....)

We had the reception nearby and it was so much fun! Roger and I did the cake, I did the flowers, I did the food with help from my dear friend Deanna and her family. It was a wonderful time!!!!

Ok.....so....drum roll, please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are soon to be parents to a six year old little boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woohoo!!!!! His name is Israel and he is gorgeous! I'm sure I can't say a whole lot more, but one of these days, you are going to read about our incredible journey in my blog!

We should have him in our home in early June.

What a blessing!! Praise the Lord. I'm so ashamed at how many times I doubted what God was doing in our adoption. He is bringing us the little BOY we need and giving him a Mommy and Daddy who want and need him. (And I'm going to have a fund raising garage sale....Israel does NOT want to wear all those dresses I bought for him/her!!!!!)

Thank you, Lord! I am so honored and at the same time, humbled that He has chosen us to have this little boy!
