Thankful Thursday

Today is a perfect day for Thankful Thursday. Today we have our very last visit from our social worker to check up on Jaxson. She is doing our one year update to send to Ch*na. His adoption date is May 26 but she comes now so that she can have the report in by then.
We love our social worker and the agency she is with. They have been a true gift from God because other agencies wouldn't allow us to adopt Jaxson because of there only being 7 months difference in age between Paige and Jaxson. We lost the first child we started to adopt 6 years ago because of me getting pregnant and that child and Amaya would have been about 7 months apart and the agency wouldn't let us go through with the adoption.

The agency we have now is a very strong Christian agency that believes that if God called us to adopt him then who are they to say no. Everyone should have an agency like this. I am so thankful God led us to this incredible agency and I truly hope we will be able to use them again if God brings us more kiddos.
I am also so very thankful for the family God has given us. We have been blessed by 3 amazing children!

IT's about time we saw a family picture!! You guys are so sweet and Jaxson looks like he and Isaiah would be such buddies. I look forward to meeting them all in person! xo
PS That little guy that you are trying to find a home for?? I have such a soft spot for Down Syndrome...that's just not nice! After posting this, I am totally clicking on it. Did I tell you that Dw has a mentally handicapped brother that will probably come live with us when his mom passes away (and she is 94)? We'll see....

What a great family picture! It's quite an accomplishment to get 10 eyes looking at the camera at the same time! :) I still grin from ear to ear every time I see your children...answers to prayer in fleshly form! God is so good.
