Texture Tuesday | Hope in your Heart

It is December! I just can’t believe that we are on the final countdown of 2013.  Believe me, I am ready for 2014, but 2013 has been a pretty good year with lots of promises and hope. I read this quote the other day that said, “90% of success is waking up with a little hope in your heart.”  For whatever reason, it really stuck with me.  Most likely because every day that I wake up, I believe that THIS day will be the day that we hear news that we have our court date.  THIS day will be filled with excitement and hope! Now, don’t get me wrong… I don’t always stay on the hope ‘high’ all day.  I am human and typically an emotional mess, but generally, through this process, I have focused on hope.  Tried to keep my focus on the positives. Like everyday I can cross off another day another day of waiting.  Another day we have made it. Another day closer to holding our baby.

The realization has been hitting me more and more lately that we will get our news soon.  And that blows my mind.  Every week we are hearing more and more court dates getting assigned to families.  And every morning, I wake up thinking, will this be our day?  Every day all day I wonder, will it be today?  One of these days, I will wake up.  And I will be right.  That THIS is the day that we have a court date, that we will be able to finally meet our son.  Until that day happens, I will wake up not with sadness.  I will wake up with hope.  I will wake up feeling strong and capable of making it through another day with hope in my heart.

Texture Tuesday | Thanksgiving

My favorite holiday:)Thanksgiving! I holiday meant to focus on what you have, focus on your family, your friends.  A day to be content with what you have in life.  I love it! Especially in this world that we live with never being content, always wanting for the next best thing. The quote, “It is not happy people who are thankful; it is thankful people who are happy,” has always been one of my favorites! The older that I get, the more I get to surround myself with people that live a thankful life. This Thanksgiving, I am choosing to be happy! Even though we are still waiting for our little guy to come home, we are SOOOO close! I choose to be thankful that he is being loved for, provided for, and taken care of.  I am thankful for an amazing husband, that is my world, my rock, my constant. I have the most amazing family to love me and support me. My friends, oh how they believe in my dreams and encourage me to follow them.  I am thankful for my home and this community that we live in.  I could go on and on!! So today, this week, I choose to give thanks with a grateful heart.

Texture Tuesday | Progress

Progress.  That is the word I keep reminding myself as we continue to wait for news that we can finally go meet our baby boy!  Well today we found out that our paper work made another step.  Another step marked off our list, another ounce of hope that our waiting is closer to coming to an end!  Today we heard that our Exit Permit (EP) was approved last week!! Yay!! This is what we have been waiting to hear over the last month and a half.  This part being completed means we get to be submitted to get a court date.  So the next thing that we will hear is that we will get to fly to Seoul, South Korea, and meet our son. I just can’t believe it!!

Also, we heard we will be getting some new pictures, video, and progress report on our little guy!! This is LONG over due and I need to see my baby! The last pictures that we received were taken back in June!! Five months since we have gotten any new updates.  It feel like every bit of those 5 months. But today, today I am focusing on progress.  Focus on one step closer to meeting our son. One giant step for having my BABY in my arms.  So while this process has been slow, I am so thankful to see progress!! Yay! Happy Tuesday, y’all!!!

I had not seen sweet Sadie since she was just a few days old, and she has grown in to such a sweet, happy 6 month old! We had beautiful light, sweet smiles, and lots of love with this family session! All things that make this photographer super happy!! Take a look at one of my favorite families!!

Texture Tuesday | A much needed visit

I just can’t believe that it is mid-November.  Can y’all?? I am in the home stretch of this crazy busy season, and so thankful that I was able to take a few days off to fly down to Florida to visit my sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew! I had not seen them since July, and that has been the longest period we have ever gone in between visits! Never again!!! Blair and Will are just growing so fast, so I am thankful for the time I get to spend with them.  We had such a great visit! I will do a full blog post later about my sweet family soon! But first my sister needs to send out Christmas cards:)I don’t want to spoil the fun! Here are just two pictures of two of my favorites!!
