My Babes

These two little people are an awful lot of fun.
They keep our hands full.

They love each other so much -
and sometimes they even act like it!

As Calvin said, "Ruby, we are two peas in a pod."

They'll have plenty of stuff to deal with as they get older, but they'll always have eachother.

Oh, and Silas. They'll also have their little brother, Silas.

Silas, we cannot wait to meet you in person. Our hearts already love you. We pray for you every day and hope you are happy and safe in Korea. We miss you. We'll see you in about 4 months.

Love,
Daddy, Mommy, Calvin and Ruby

  13. Shannan! I'm SO excited for you and Cory...and Calvin and Ruby! Maybe I missed the part where you started walking this journey again. It's just like childbirth, in that you kinda forget the pain of the process until you start it up again and then quickly remember. Oh, but it's worth it!

    So you've received your referral?!?!? A boy! Hurray!!!

    I can't help but feel a little twinge of wish-it-were-me feelings...not envy or jealousy because I'm thrilled for you. And for Silas. (Love the name.) God is so good to bring you together. I'm struggling with those familiar stirrings in my heart, but I know the time is not now. But when God waves the green flag, baby, I'll be sprinting, and with a smile.

    I still have one empty seatbelt in the van. Seems like a waste to me.... :o)

    Love and hugs and squeals of joy for you,
    Jody
