Enjoying Summer and waiting

It is hard to believe July is here. Time seems to flying by. We have not heard anything about Elle. Each list that comes out is made up of 95% boys or girls with moderate to severe needs. It is getting VERY discouraging.  I know GOD has a plan but I can't help but feel like something/someone is missing from our family.
 The girls on 4th of July. Our town has an awesome family friendly, alcohol free event all day with fireworks to top the night off.
 Lize eating yet another treat. She had nose surgery 5 weeks ago. There is still swelling but she is VERY content with the results. We are happy she feels so "pretty".
                                                                 He's always a hoot!
 We went swimming with our friend Alivia. She is always excited to play with girls since she has 4 brothers.
                                                           Lize lost her 1st tooth
 We surprised the 2 older boys with a trip to California. It was a quick, busy 5 days with 1200 miles of driving (but worth every mile).

                                                    We celebrated 22 years of marriage!
