One more MONTH down!!!!

Today is our LID anniversary. Our dossier has been in China for 14 months today, and right now the wait is 18-19 months. Please pray along with us that the wait will not get any longer before it is our time. We can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel now!!!

Here's my Godson!!!!

Finally !!! Here is my godson Jacob Edison Cruz. He is 17 months old and quite a little Tiger!!! He is busy, busy, busy and driving his mommy crazy!!!! Hahahaha!! He does have a big sister and her name is Alex, but I can't get a good picture of her to put on here that shows how beautiful she is, so we will find one soon.


I just wanted to let all of you know that Christopher and Amy's wedding date is August 25, 2007!!! Yes Amy has been a little bit busy I would say. She got her dress last Saturday and this Saturday her mom and I along with Amy are going to order the CAKE!!! Amy has done a great job planning the whole wedding in just a short amount of time. If your wondering why so fast it is because Steven is going to be home that weekend and they wanted him to be able to be there.

From what we were told Steven and Megan are getting married friday August 24th at the courthouse and then when he gets home they will have a big ceremony!!! How exciting the boys anniversary's will be a day apart!!!!!

Also last weekend Chelsey , Lisa and Haley ran into them at the Bridal shop and Chelsey found her dress also. It is hanging in Franceskas room right now!! And their date is November 17, 2007!!! Everyone is busy busy busy!!!!

When love takes you in.

When I heard this song for the first time, it really took me by surprise.The feelings it brought out in me!! I welled up and started to cry. The song is about children being adopted and brought to their new homes and being taken in by love, but when I listened to it I immediately started thinking about my kids. God chose me to be their mother and I was truly taken in by their LOVE. God is awesome and he does have a plan and I am so thankful for the plan he had for me and I look forward to the rest of it. With God all things are possible. Just look at me for example there was a time I never thought I would have kids and now I will have 7!! with Franceska, one grandson and three really great daughter-in-laws. So yes with God all things are possible!!!

A Special Soldier's Ceremony

On Saturday the 2nd there was a farewell ceremony in New Braunfels Texas for the Alpha Battery 4/133rd. Those things are always hard and emotional. You get that lump in your throat, knot in your stomach, so proud you think your gonna explode with emotion feeling!!! There are always pep talks and ongoing PATRIOTISM!!!!! And when one of the people they are talking about is your son it is pretty darn overwhelming. Here are some pictures of the day. I hope you enjoy them and as always we ask for your prayers for Steven and the rest of his unit as well as all of the soldiers and their families. We are so proud of him our chests could just explode!!!!

The Grohman Family

Garrett with his sister Brittany and mom Linda

That is us with "OUR BOYS"

Garrett with his mom, sister and grandparents

Garrett Grohman is in Stevens unit and is also from La Vernia. I have known his family for quite some time but did not have a real family like connection until now. We prayed as a family with our boys at church the sunday before they left and now his mom Linda and I have very quickly became special friends. Please as you pray for Stevens safety include Garrett he is a great kid and has a great family. All of us thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your prayers.
