Aidens Birthday Today - New Picture



This will be Aidens last birthday in an orphanage. We sent him a care package that had 2 balls in it, some pjs and some candies for the nannies. I also ordered a cake and had it delivered... which we could be there but hopefully soon.

Taylor at Poppies..Fishing Rodeo



Well Taylor is having a blast up at poppies house. I actually have a weekend to myself. First time in about 3 months! I don't know what to do with myself. My dad and Dj took them to the annual fishing rodeo. He said they were more into playing with the bait then fishing! We are still waiting for our LOA (letter of approval to come in from China) in case you are wondering. Possibly traveling in July or the end of August is what we are guessing. Can't wait to bring him home!

Chads Reinlistment ~ So Proud




GOT YOUR BACK
I am a small and precious child, my dad's been sent to fight.
The only place I'll see his face is in my dreams at night.
He will be gone too many days for my young mind to keep track.
I may be sad, but I am proud.
My daddy's got your back.


I am a caring mother, my son has gone to war.
My mind is filled with worries that I have never known before.
Everyday I try to keep my thoughts from turning black.
I may be scared, but I am proud.
My son has got your back.


I am a strong and loving wife, with a husband soon to go.
There are times I'm terrified in a way most never know.
I bite my lip, and force a smile as I watch my husband pack.
My heart may break, but I am proud.
My husband's got your back.


I am a Soldier, serving proudly... standing tall.
I fight for freedom, yours and mine, by answering this call.
I do my job while knowing, the thanks it sometimes lacks.
Say a prayer that I'll come home,
IT'S ME WHO'S GOT YOUR BACK!!!
