My Top Secret Summer Project REVEALED!



I have started this post about a hundred times in my head over the last few months, but I never could quite decide just how it should go. I knew that before I posted pictures and tales from market I would have to explain one really important detail in my booth.....it was my BIG summer project. It took a whole lot of time, energy, prayer, and patience, which is why blog posting may have seemed a little scarce at times. So here it is......




......the smallest Caffee safe and sound in the second trimester! The last week has been so filled with joy as we finally shared the news with our children and family! We are SO happy! Another big surprise came when we talked to our social worker and found out that this little angel will NOT affect our adoption AT ALL! Praise God! I think I worried over our Bulgarian babies as much as I did this little one over the last few months. Oh friends, God is so good! This Mama has one full, happy, busting-at-the-seams heart today! I'll tell you all about market later (Monday is the last day), but right now I just want to sit back and enjoy this moment......

I am crying tears of joy for you all right now Samantha...I got an inkling for some reason a couple weeks ago that something big was happening with you all because posting had been fewer. I know the first trimester of my fourth was a very sleepy one.

PRAISE GOD and His goodness and mercy! So good to hear that your babies in Bulgaria will have no hiccups in their journey home.
