AS WE WAIT

We are still anxiously awaiting the day we will recieve our refferral from America World on the adoption of sweet Gracie and are expectant that it will be soon. China is currently experiencing delayed wait times due to an abundance of children in need of adoption, but not enough staff or funds to file and deem the orphaned children abandoned. America World has began an organiztion to assist with raising funds to get the children processed so they will be "adoptable" ( for more information go to: AWAA.org then "An Orphans Ticket Home).

Drew is doing great at DBU, enjoying college life and being independant. He is a group leader for Young Life in Arlington and has been blessed to lead worship for some area churches. He is leading worship at Prestonwood's Connection service on November 12th. God has truly gifted Drew with a heart for ministry through worship and we can't wait to see where God leads him in ministry.

Dustin is doing great as well, enjoying NOT being a freshman anymore and loving his sophmore year at Prosper High School. He is participating in youth choir at Prestonwood and just landed a part in Christmas Follies, Merry Christmas Ya'll! He will be dancing, singing and has a brief speaking part. Who would have ever thought this sweet, BASHFUL child would ever be dancing and singing!!!

What a great way to communicate updates about Gracie and the rest of the crew. I'll be checking in regularly to see what's going on!
