Today is Thankful Thursday. There is so much to be thankful for that I don't know where to begin.
Here goes . . .


A God who loves us and never lets go

Who is there through the highs and through the lows

Our precious sons who bring light to our lives

My amazing husband for the way he loves and cares for us

My mom and dad and Kevin's mom for always being there when we
need them. You never really stop needing your pare

For another wonderful father we had once upon a time -
Kevin's dad who still lives on in our hearts

Our brothers and sisters for all they do to support us -
bring us our other car at the hospital after our first accident so we had a car seat for Philip,
take us places and pick up our junk to drop off at "big trash drop off day
" because we don't have a vehicle, offers of help with Philip when we go to China again

Sweet comments from even sweeter bloggy friends - your comments
encourage and lift us up

The fact that no one was injured in my wreck of a week ago and
I was only slightly injured in the first accident

Our vehicles are being fixed

Our insurance agent and dear friend Jessica

Jen's husband Ric, another sweet bloggy friend who
gave us great advice about our injured autos

The world-wide adoption community that we have become a part of -
how beautiful it is to see Jesus in action on this planet

The Phil*p Hayden Foundation for the work they do in Christ's name for the orphans of Ch*na

The new world that is opening to us since we have become parents of a little one again.

The list could go on and on. My heart is so full of thanks tonight even considering the last couple of weeks we have had.

What are you thankful for this evening?

I'll leave you with a couple of pictures of our goofy fou
r-year-old who was supposed to be fast asleep as it is now well past 11 P.M
