In adoption news, we are scheduled to have our final home study visit this week! Wow- we are still undecided as to what country to go with- yes, I know, we need to decide! We are actually inquiring at this time about a little girl in Thailand. Depending on what we find out, our decision could be made :) If Thailand does not work out, we have opened our hearts to the idea of adopting a boy from Ethiopia, as we were recently informed of the huge need for boys with HIV to be adopted. If we do decide to go that route, we most likely will request a boy younger than Caleb, anywhere from 1-18 months of age. Caleb will be a great big brother no matter what, and we will be a blessed family. The last couple of weeks (minus vacation) have been stressful due to some unexpected news that has made our future less clear than it was before.....but we are so thankful that God is in control, that He has our best intentions in mind, and that most of all He loves us beyond measure!

Caleb Goes Cruising!
As you will see from the pictures below, we just returned from the most awesome family vacation! We took a cruise to Mexico for the week! It was a blast! Caleb had the best time and he made many friends on the ship- what a guy! He loved the beach, especially the sand, which he said "tickled" his feet. It was so special for our families to be able to enjoy each others company while visiting such a beautiful place and in such a fun atmosphere- if you haven't gone on a cruise, you need to go !!! I loved watching Caleb experience so many new things- it was a blast! He did great and was such a trooper, even on the long days. Here a just a few of the highlights from our week at sea......
