Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!   

We went to Jakob's school dance tonight and had a lot of fun!  Jada took awhile to warm up.  Classic photo below--does that feel familiar from back in the day?  Once she was comfortable--off she went--running! 

Jakob danced with a lot of encouragement, but really enjoyed the light show and spent most of his time trying to catch them.  He has been so goofy lately that we just can't stop laughing!  I can't upload video, but here is his goofy Valentine sticker picture.  Too bad his undies don't have hearts on them!  haha!

I've been trying to make some changes to my blog and somehow changed things a bit too much.  I have managed to delete all my blog links (but you can still view my complete file to find most of them there) and I have no clue how to upload videos now.  It's been a slow process for me as I've been trying to spend more of my time working on our photo album for LSS.  I had a goal to get it done before the outreach training--and that didn't happen.  Then, my second goal was to have it done in time to hand it in at the "waiting" family meeting at the end of March.  Well, I thought Jada's story was unbelievable, but I guess crazier things can happen!  We got "a call" on Thursday, Feb 11th at approximately 5:01pm from our social worker and we will be having a match meeting sometime early next week with an expectant parent!  Ummmmm. . . I really shouldn't be blogging right now--but working on that photo album!  Like we got any sleep last night! :0)  We still don't know exactly when our meeting is going to be, but we pray it all works out as it should.  We simply CAN NOT WAIT to meet her!  We were bummed that we had to wait so long.  There have been a lot of emotions flowing through our household!  I will certainly keep you updated with anything that I can. . . but in the meantime. . . we ask everyone to pray for this young woman.  Give her strength, love, support and peace.  I hope she likes us.  I wonder if I should go get my hair cut. . . . I wonder what she is wondering about us.  I wonder if she is as nervous as we are.  From what I already know--she has done some pretty amazing things--I wonder if she knows that.  I wonder if she knows how much we already love her--even if she doesn't choose us.  I wonder if she is as anxious as we are to meet.  I am definitely not going to get any sleep this weekend!  I better go get started on our photo album!  It is generally used for a conversation piece, but if you know Craig and me. . . we really don't have any problems talking--do we?  :0)
