So, on to today's update and status.....

I would never believe it to be possible but I am truly beginning to feel peaceful with the awareness that we are doing all that we need to do and that it will all come together.  

We were able to send a package to the twins for Christmas and it just now got to them because it needed to be sent through the attorney and then sent on to them.  It should have been disappointing to me that it took so long but I was actually amazed at the wonderful timing.  After all, the twins are only four years old and it is perfect timing in terms of their memories to have gotten the gifts and yummy treats only a week before we will meet them. 

We also were able to see pics that they received them....it was amazing to actually see the things that we carefully picked out and lovingly wrapped and sent, to be in their hands.  I know it may sound strange but it makes it all so much more real.

We've also spent a lot of time praying and praying some more.  I felt prompted to read 1 Corinthians and found a verse that really stood out to us:

Grace [be] unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ.

I really am finally feeling that we are doing exactly as Heavenly Father wants us to do and that we are right on track.  And, that feels so extremely good! 

Looks like I am posting this so late at night that I will be posting again today....with the results of our Ipad 2 contest...get in on it while you still can! :-)
