Party Of Five

If you haven't read the post HOPE, read it before this one.

In case you haven't heard, here's the latest family news:

We have added another girl to our family. She's 12 years old and she's absolutely delightful! She's the perfect fit for our family and I know she feels the same. We'll be transitioning her to our home within the next month, but after she's permanently placed in our home, the road to finalizing her adoption will be anywhere from a few months to a year.

We are SUPER excited and equally freaked out! I mean Dan and I have never parented a pre-teen before, but we're ready to jump in and be the parents that this girl needs. She's so excited to be a part of our family and she adores her new sisters.

We have truly seen the hand of our loving Heavenly Father through this journey of adopting more children this past year. We know that this is all meant to be and will work out for everyone involved, simply because it is His will.

I'm sure I will post more about our adventure soon, but in the meantime that's the latest news about our family.


Candice said...

Yeah! We are so excited for your family. I got chills reading this.

p.s. now that we're temporarily in the area, we should get together sometime.

Sarah said...

What wonderful news! Congratulations! Is there such a thing as a teen shower? :-D

Shannon said...

Awesome! Big congratulations to all five of you :)

Amanda said...

Yay! Congratulations guys! Hopefully we can meet her soon when we finally get our passports!

Colette said...

That is such exciting news Susan!! You guys are an amazing couple! Hope the transition goes well for you all and the final adoption goes smooth and quickly! Good luck!! :D

Ryan and Amanda said...

Susan, I was so happy to read that you are adding another girl to your family. What a blessing for you and Dan. Isn't it amazing to see Heavenly Father's hand working in our life? I am so glad for you. I hope the transition goes well.

McBrides said...

That's wonderful! Can't wait to meet her soon. :)

Suze said...

Thanks for your comments everyone. We appreciate them all.

Candice we should definitely get together!

Sarah the one sucky thing about adoption is that you don't get "showers". (At least I never did!) It's probably the one thing I get depressed about.

Thanks Shannon!

LeManda I can't wait to see you guys again. Since I can't come up there with the family until we finalize the adoption, I'll be waiting for you to make the trip down! You're welcome ANYTIME!!!

Thanks Oompa!

Thanks Amanda!

Thanks Kiren!

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who didn't get a shower! = )

I'm so happy for you and will pray that the transition goes well, as I'm sure it will. If you ever need anything let us know, we've been where you're going and would love to help if you need it!

Congrats again, so happy for you!

Suze said...

Thanks Danette! I'm sorry you never got a shower either. :( If I lived closer, I would've TOTALLY thrown you one! We should get together and party anyways.

Sarah Fuddybuddy darlin' I miss you too! I think of you often. Makes me want to just pick up the phone and call you, but then I don't have your number! I love you and thanks for your comment!
