Caffeinated Randomness: I love my brother MORE!

Thank you so much for your sweet comments and prayers! I am feeling a lot better – not all together fine, but much better!
First things first – we will not be getting our number today … I know, boooo. We have not received our home study report back from AGCI. They are still reviewing it, and it’s taken a little longer than expected. That’s okay, though. I spoke our case manager and she said that we could expect our number next Friday - so just one more week… I can do that! : )
Once again, God is doing big things in my life that I am so excited about!! I'm not ready to share details yet – but it all intertwines with this post when I was feeling such despair and the Lord helped me through a difficult action. Well, things are steadily moving along in the direction I believe the Lord has for me. Keep praying – but also PRAISING! : )
Last but NOT least --- HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEVIN!!!! My wonderful brother turns 19 today. I still remember the night my mom left for the hospital to deliver him. I remember dad coming home to wake us up in our bunk beds and tell us our brother was here. My sister and I loved him instantly and my mom tells us she would often walk into the living room to find us arguing with each other over who loved him more! Haha … here’s me and my brother all grown up now…

Head on over to Andrea's to get your caffeine fix!

Happy Birthday to Kevin. Your little brother is so cute and I love the picture of the two of you.

Glad you are feeling better. Take care of yourself...it takes awhile.

This adoption is very exciting and I know it is hard to wait for the processes...but hang in there sweetie, it will happen soon.

I am so glad to hear that you are on the mend.

I will pray for this week. I am excited to see your number, too!

That is so special, your baby brother...well, not such a baby!

Oh I love it. I have a daughter and two boys and love to watch their closeness grow. While sometimes they are screaming at each other, the next moment they are laughing at a silly joke only the two of them understand. It's precious to me and I love to see it because I was an only child.
Your blog is wonderful and I am now following. What a road you have traveled - I will be praying for you sweet son.
