The update arrived - cuteness enclosed

Our update arrived in our inboxes like clockwork Saturday night.  As always, Brit's dad gave a beautifully detailed update full of funny Brit stories.  Seriously, his email updates crack me up.  I read them over and over again and I chuckle every time.

It appears she is finally getting some hair, which is about time, considering her 2nd birthday is a month away.  I love the beautiful blonde locks.

In an effort to acknowledge more of the things I am thankful for with my adoption relationship, I must say that in addition to the great monthly email stories, I am grateful that they send great snapshots of Brit.  They are all casual and fun.  The pictures make me smile.  It is great to see Brit in her environment, playing and smiling.  Sometimes she has food on her face, and almost always she is barefoot.  I think those are the greatest pictures because they are real life.

Now, a special request...

For those of you who pray for me, I would ask a specific prayer.

Last year we were granted a visit with Brit around this time of her birthday.  We have reason to believe we will get another one this year too.

My prayer request is that we would be allowed to have our boys involved in the visit this year.  Last year we were specifically asked not to have the boys at the house when they came over so Brit was not overwhelmed.

This year we are hopeful that they do not again share this concern and instead welcome our children meeting their little sister.

Please pray that this will be the case.

Thanks to everyone and your support and encouragement.  I am thankful for every kind word.


And for my absolute favorite, 
which I call "I HATE PIG TAILS!"

Yay, Yay, Yay! I am SO glad that you all received your update. Not that I thought you wouldn't, but I guess you just never know! :)

I will absolutely be praying that specific prayer for you and your family. Each day I give your family a "general" prayer (albeit heartfelt! ;)) but now I will be sure to say that specifically. I could tear up just thinking about how much it would mean to you and the boys!!!! :)

Thanks for sharing your precious pictures. She's so adorable and loved.
You are all in my prayers every day. Miracles do happen. Keep the faith and never give up hope.
My belief is that an adopted child will be much better knowing its birth family, all of them, not just the birthmom. I Pray Brit's parents will realize this soon.
Positive thoughts coming your way...
