In Your Letter

The past few days have been awesome!  New pictures and videos of our kids, college fair, Josh turns 14 this week, school is almost out for the summer and a letter...

Monique and Frantz
Junior, Monique and Frantz

Ahhh... The college fair - LOVE it!  We now have peace about our daughter, Amanda going off to college in the fall of 2012.  She has chosen a major that although it will negatively affect our pocket book it will not as much as the original goal of being a pediatric cardiologist.  In the end she will be Dr. Amanda Carlie Colson and will be able to accomplish the similar desires without having to give up family wich is very important to her. 

We received a letter from our daughter, Monique.  Monique's favorite color is pink!  We have a girly girl!! Yeah!!! (I love Amanda do NOT get me wrong but she wouldn't wear dresses either and Monique loves them!!) She has the neatest handwriting I have seen for a child her age in a long time!  She puts Amanda and Josh to shame.  LOL  Monique thanked us for the clothes, let us know the boys favorite colors and she sent their love and kisses!  In her very first paragraph she says we are sure what is most important to her.  "I love you very much. I made haste to write you.  I like my school and my favorite subject is writing.  I aim to be a doctor in my future."  We might just have Dr. Monique Alana Colson too!  WOW are we headed for broke or what!
Monique in the outfit we sent her.
Junior and Ruth (Monique's bestie)
Junior likes the colors blue and white, Frantzy likes red (that's my boy!) and they will like their room painted in the bright colors of our choice.  We wrote in our last letter to them that we are working on their rooms and asked for their favorite colors.  Wow, we have amazingly respectful children with hearts of gold!
"Do you want your shirt back?" No, Frantzy Mama Blanc gave it to you.
Honestly, we have done nothing to deserve or earn the two very awesome biological children that God has so generously gifted us and I assure you we have not earned three more perfectly awesome children either.  We are humbled by the blessings the Lord has bestowed on our family.  The more pictures and videos we see the more we can see so much of us in these children God chose for us before He considered creating the foundations of the Earth. We are in awe and perfect amazement at how even across the ocean God is knotting our hearts and souls together.

Josh said the other day "I am not gonna lie, I just can't wait for them to come home.  You can see it in Monique's face, she is going to me a track star.  Just look at her smile, she is a track star!"  He can't wait to help the boys in their sport of choice and...  His list is endless.  Such a selfless heart for a 14 year old!  Frantzy gives the shirt off his back and his oldest brother would leap a tall building if it would bring his little brothers and sister home.

We are on our knees praying for our dossier to be out of IBESR.  We pray every day for the directors in charge of orphans across the world to have compassion for these children and to send them home.  May the Lord break their hearts for what breaks His and may it cause them to send His children home.

We thank you in advance for walking this mighty adoption journey with us.  Our road is long but the Lord hears our cry.

Isaiah 30:19 For a people shall dwell in Zion, in Jerusalem; you shall weep no more.  He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry.
