A LITTLE MORE ON THE NEW ADVENTURE...

THIS IS HOW OUR HOPIE FEELS ABOUT CANDY AND A NEW BROTHER OR SISTER:):)
PRETTY EXCITED!!!

So the big boys are away for one more day... (Get on home big boys, we miss you all!!!)  I took the littles out to our favorite Mexican restaurant in our little town... CHEAP is all I can say... The 5 of us ate for $13...

After eating really good all week, exceptionally good for me... we rewarded ourselves with a meal out... kind of sick huh?  Back at the healthy eating tomorrow though:):)  We don't eat out often so it was a big treat!

ANYWAYS... this is why I mentioned eating out... Jojo and Hope were sitting across from Anna and I... We were talking about the new little person we hope the Lord will add to our family.  We were talking about boys or girls, ages of the child... I asked Hope if she wanted it to be a big brother/sister or a little brother/sister?

She didn't really care... actually she wasn't super engaged in the conversation...

Then I said, "Hey Hope, whatever brother or sister we get... He/she will have pretty dark skin like you!"

You would have thought it was CHRISTMAS!!!

She got the BIGGEST grin on her face... She leaned over and gave Jojo the biggest hug... She jumped up out of the booth and came around to my side and gave me a HUGE hug...

I asked, "What was that  hug was for?"
She said," I am so happy that you said that mommy!"

I almost fell over... Besides the fact that we all would LOVE another child... and many other reasons... one reason to add to the family would be so that Hope can have another sibling that sort of looks a little more like her.  But I sort of thought that might come into play more for her down the road...  I would never have thought she would have that kind of reaction now.

But she seemed over the top thrilled about it now... and we are thrilled with her:)

I will share more about our decision to adopt again in the days ahead, but I wanted to share that sweet Hope story with you... We can not wait to see the little one the Lord picks out for us... He continues to do more than we can ask or imagine in our family... We are so thankful!
