Give Thanks.....With a Grateful Heart!

 1 Chronicles 16:34 says:
"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."

We are so thankful, so very thankful! We give thanks to the Lord that our beloved Theodore has been matched with a family! That's amazing! We rejoice that he will soon have a Daddy and Mommy to call his own! We all grew to love him during this past month when we wondered and prayed if we would be the family that he would be matched with. Madelyn shed many tears when she found out that we were not the family chosen for Theodore.

I share this with you all with excitement. You see, God used Adeye and Theodore to open our hearts and eyes to Bulgaria and the need there. We were willing to step out in faith and commit to Theodore, and open our family to a special needs child from Bulgaria. God chose our child NOT to be Theodore and that is okay!

God is still at work. We are mailing out our check tomorrow to commit to another Bulgarian child. We will let you know as soon as it's official! God used Theodore to bring us to this point. We are rejoicing here! We can't wait to shout  from the mountain tops who God has matched us with!

We have so much to be thankful for! 
 We celebrated Thanksgiving with 25 of Glenn's family members all seated at the same table! It was wonderful!
 We rejoice that this was Rosie's first Thankgiving!
We were able to do 2 craft fairs so far this season. See my scarf rack to the left? I sold out! All of the money is going toward our Bulgaria adoption! Yeah!

The craft fair was at the quaint Union School House. Purchased by a homeschool family, it's a wonderful location!

All of the kids helped me with knitting the scarves! Thank you kids!

 We promise to keep you all posted!!
Our love to you!
