My Little One

My little one, my precious joy
I am waiting for you
My precious son, my little boy
I know you're waiting too

My little one, my precious joy
I'm whispering to you a prayer
My precious son, my baby boy
I hope to soon be there.

Safe and Sound

May you be safe and sleep soundly through the night,
May you be safe as you wake to the morning's light.
May you feel our love from so far away,
May it comfort and protect you throughout each day.
We will pray for you daily my little one,
Until our time of waiting is finally done.
We will pray that the Lord keeps you safe from harm,
Until the day we can hold you safe in our arms.

Kaegan Michiah Kent

We have decided to name him Kaegan Michiah Kent. Marty found the name Kaegan and I loved it. The name Michiah is a name that Marty and I decided on several years ago when we first began trying to have kids. We liked it because it fit both male and female. The name actually came from 2 Kings. Michiah blew the trumpet at the dedication of Jerusalem.

Marty and I have picked out the bedding for Kaegan and I am ready to start painting. We will keep Kamiko's room as it is and make the other guest room Kaegan's room. I have a lot of cleaning out to do before I can begin to do anything in there. That has been my junk room and the closet is a huge mess. I will be very busy this weekend.

I spoke to the agency yesterday and our acceptance letter has been sent to China. China will now look over it and send us documents to sign with our confirmation as his parents. Next we will apply for our VISA's and the child's and finally we travel to get him. This normally takes anywhere between 3-5 months. The agency said that they will rush everything so we can have him home by Christmas. Wow!! Wouldn't that be great!!

Marty and I are so excited. We have been talking about how Kaegan is already walking and is going to be moving around this house alot. I told Marty that the long plane ride home from China is going to be very interesting with a 2 year old. We talked about how we are going to have to get doggie gates to put at the top and bottom of the stairs so he doesn't climb up them or fall down them during the night. Anyway, I could go on and on about the things we talked about but I won't bore you. Just know that we are very excited and thrilled to finally be parents.

Keep on praying!!

It's a Boy for sure!

On September 3, 2008 at 1:55 p.m. Marty and I confirmed that yes, we would adopt a precious boy. I received a phone call this morning from the agency that requested we send a childs medical information to our doctor to get a better understanding of his medical condition. The paperwork stated that the child has a congenital heart condition. I contacted our doctor who happened to be off today and she was kind enough to check her email and read over the documents. She also contacted a pediatric cardiologists in regards to his records. They both did not see any major concerns.

I called Marty, who is at home sick today, talked to him about what the doctors said and we both decided to pray quickly about it and call each other back. A few minutes later I called him because I could not wait to hear his response. We both felt that it would be selfish of us to deny this precious boy because of our desire for a girl. How could we possibly do that. The Lord has blessed us with 2 opportunities for a boy within in the last 4 weeks. I think He might be telling us something. Anyway, at 1:55 I contacted the agency and told them he was our son!!

YEAH!!!! We have a baby boy. He is 2 years old and was born on August 3, 2006. I would love to post his picture but I can't until we get an approval from the agency. We should have him home by Christmas. We are so excited and have lots of preparing to do. As you all know we are extremely prepared for a girl. I can't wait to prepare the place for our son.

It is amazing how much love we have for him already and all we have are 2 pictures and medical documents. I know that this is God's Agape' love that is unconditional and everlasting especially now when we haven't even touched his precious hands or cute little cheeks.

Please continue to pray for us as we continue this process. I will post his pictures as soon as I can.

God Bless,
