Waiting For Ava

“But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day.” Habakkuk 2:3

Birthday Party and Fathers Day.

We went to Ami's birthday party this weekend. Ami is from the same SWI as Ava and Ami just turned three. We had such a wonderful time. We are so lucky to be able to keep in touch with the girls from Ava's orphanage. There are four of them and we all live within 2.5 hours of each other. I think it is so important to keep these connections with the girls. They spent the first year of their lives together. Keeping a chinese connection is important. We do not live a culturally diverse community so it is important to us to have relationships with people that Ava will be able to relate to, who will know better what Ava experiences than the girls who she was adopted with.

We spent Father's day at my Mom and Dad's. We had a beautiful day in the sunshine. Ava played with her cousins in the sprinkler and kiddie pool. Mike, my Dad and brother were spoiled with a steak dinner prepared by the girls who love them. We are truly blessed.
