Wow! That is all I can say about our weekend. I got my socks blessed right off of me. We volunteered again this year for the Feed My Starving Children event at Pathway. For those of you who do not know about this organization you can check it out at: www.fmsc.org. Chicken, Veggies, Soy, Rice, feeding children is so nice. Our group packaged 4,752 meals. This is what I want my children to understand, it is about helping others in need, "The least of these". Sometimes you wonder if they get it?? We do small things and hope that they understand. This year, I think that Madison may have understood. Once we were finished packing, the leader for FMSC asked us to gather around the pallets of food and pray for them. Of over the hundred volunteers that were there, my daughter asked to pray for the food and the children. Her heart was so precious and honest. All I could say was, thank you Lord that she gets it.
Well, our weekend of blessings continued on Sunday. Our small group from church threw a party for three children from a local homeless shelter. There were many people who came from the shelter to enjoy the festivities. It felt so nice to be able to do something good for these families!
As our weekend wrapped up, I could not help but wonder who was more blessed by these activities. I know that I felt awfully grateful to be involved.

Well this week marks the tenth month of our wait. Wow, look how far we have come. Hopefully, no more than 2 months more of waiting to see two sweet faces. We definitely are starting to feel like we are getting close.
So, what do we do to keep our minds off all of this waiting. We just keep up with our day by day activities. We just enjoyed a brisk Halloween up in Fort Wayne. We have enjoyed all the fall activities. Leaf diving, pumpkin pickin, pumpkin carving, a fall party, and trick or treating. Although, I could not help but think this year while trick or treating what in the world two little ones from Africa will think of people dressing up in strange clothes with bags filled with candy. From the outside looking in, I must admit, it seems strange.
