I am seeing a little trend here:
Grace and Caleb

Grace and Daniel Paul
Grace may be the best big sister a little boy could have!

Meet Caleb
Since before this baby boy was born a team of people have been working on his behalf. Working to save his birthmother and siblings. Working to give them new life. Working to get them healthy. Hours were spent pouring into his birthmom even before he was born.  For a while she was doing great then she fell back into her “hell” as she says and started refusing help. It took a while to get the baby out but he was finally removed a few weeks ago.
Caleb- 12 spies went into Cannan and only two men gave report that was prompted by faith in the Lord.
Caleb was one of those two men.
I love his response ”We can certainly do it!”
Kind of funny since baby boy did not have a name- my family gave the name suggestion of Caleb.
 I went back and read the story and it totally resonates with the question “can we do it” “can we take another baby”
My answer like Caleb’s “We can certainly do it!” My answer prompted by faith that the Lord is going to provide more than enough of what we need, more grace and mercy, more love, and more of Him.
His story is painfully heartbreaking but the Lord has clearly had his hand on this little one.

  He is now having effects of drugs his birthmother used which prompted the sudden urgency to get him into a foster family.

Well February is here and almost half way over now and I have yet to tell you what is happening.

On February 4th my baby girl started pre-k. She is now on her second week of school. Most of the kids in her class are 4-6 years old but she is holding her own. She has only refused to go twice. Today she hoped in her taxi and said “bye mommy.”

DP and I are doing a lot of hanging out… more like he gets dragged around to do all the not so fun errands. He has been a trooper.
Our neighbors the Waits are home!

The weekends are super fun now filled with lots of swimming at Grace’s request. DP has started to swim and he loves it as much as his sister. He has no fear which makes me a little scared for the coming toddler season.

Because of several reasons DP will not travel in April to Alabama. Grace still has her VISA interview in less than 3 weeks!! In the next 3 weeks we still need 3 very important things to happen so pray for favor with the judge and IHNFA.
