A Little Starving

Just had to share a few cute quotes from my kids:

Kent asked Maija: "Are you hungry?"
Maija: "I'm a little starving."
Bekah: "I'm BIG starving."

Forest during a discussion of the mark of Cain in Sunday School:

After sitting quietly playing in my lap, when our class began to discuss (nervously) the mark of Cain and what that really was, out of nowhere Forest lets out a huge, loud raspberry (you know, where you stick your tongue out and spit). It was the BEST way to answer our discussion. No words could've been more articulate. The whole room burst out in laughter. "From the mouths of babes..."

Maija asks me tonight if I know why she gave me a present (one of her toys in a gift bag):

Her answer: "Because you're having issues."

P.S. And for those who are wondering, we are still waiting to be matched to a different baby...

so funny! I can't believe Forest is 1...but then I guess that means my little guy is almost 1 too! this year has gone by so fast in one way and slow in others...what a great example you are.
we miss qc too...but enjoy having justin home more for sure :)

So how does the process work now that it won't be Forrest's sibling?

The process now is that we wait to be matched to a different birthmother and baby through the adoption agency. They call when they have a situation coming up, and if we give them the go ahead, they show our profile to the birthmother. Then the birthmother ultimately chooses which couple she wants to place her baby with. If a birthmother chooses us, then we are "matched" and prepare for the birth of the baby when the official adoption placement happens. That's in a nutshell.

We'll keep posting our progress along the way.
