Nothing new to report on the adoption front this past week. However, eleven families who's court cases were held up by the abandonment issues had their cases APPROVED this week. Congrats to these lucky families! The House of Hope will probably be pretty empty after they travel. Room for more kiddo's possibly?!?! Hopefully we will have some more good news to share later this week.
We spent Saturday evening with some of our friends and their families at a BBQ. The kids had so much fun playing on the swing set, swimming and eating smores. It was a great evening just hanging out in the Missouri heat with friends and family! It is so exciting to think that next year Marley will be here to enjoy these festivities! Thanks Steve and Wendy for the great evening.
Let me introduce you to River of whom River's Ribbons is named after. She was sporting the cutest little t-shirt; one of the Ethiopia adoption shirts listed in her mom's Etsy store, along with "Team Marley" on the back. It was the cutest thing EVER!!!
One of my oldest and dearest friends is getting married next weekend. It is long over due and I am so happy for Robyn and Tim, they are going to be so happy together.
I will end with some pics from the BBQ, I promised no swimsuit pics of the adults on the blog so just my niece Jenna and nephew Jarrett, whom we love dearly!
