Still Partying!

We're still at it!
Last month Evelyn was honored at a Sip & See given by the sweet ladies from my hometown church. She was able to meet all the precious women who have been praying for her for so long...even before we knew who she was!
It was a fun morning filled with wonderful food, friends and fun!

Thank you to our sweet hostesses and to my long-time friend Erin from Muddy Feet Photography for the fabulous pictures!

{one year}

One year ago today I was checking my email and found this:

Patrick and Amy,

We’ve just received a new referral into the Waiting Child Program from Korea

and I’m wondering if you might be interested in reviewing her file.

This little girl was born 2/13/10, at almost 34 weeks, at 5.5lbs....

I immediately called Patrick and told him I think this is it,

I believe they just sent us our daughter!

Two hours later we saw her sweet face for the first time.

And here we are one year later...
She is home, happy and such a joy.
We can't imagine life without her.

Happy Referral Day Evelyn!

Alpine Camp for Boys...and Evelyn!

We had the privilege of spending last week at
while Patrick served as camp doctor for the week.
Evelyn had a blast spending the week up on Lookout Mountain watching all the boys at camp, playing with camp dogs Boone and Sawyer, swimming in the Little River, jumping on the water trampoline, riding horses, attending glee club and just the freedom to run anywhere she wanted to!
Needless to say she has been very bored since we came's not quite the same without 200+ boys to keep you entertained!
