Well it has been a crazy long day in the Thomas Family. My dad began running a high fever this afternoon, so Mom took him to the ER. My parents have just recently returned from a mission trip to Uganda, so they are checking Dad for malaria. In addition to that my great aunt Polly passed away. And then my cousin became engaged today. So needless to say the day has been a little crazy and emotional.
To top all of this off, we received quite a few pictures of our children today. This was really fantastic, because we had not heard anything in quite a few weeks and that has been really tough. We love these little ones already so the unknowns and waiting is hard. We were so excited to see the pictures! They are our only "connection" to our children, so the pictures are dear to us. Brother Bear and Sister Bear both look great! They seem to have gained weight since being moved to foster care. I felt the need to sit and study their little faces. I can not wait till they finally are in our arms!
Please pray for all that is going on in our lives right now. We know that God is in control and none of this caught Him by surprise.
