Here We Grow Again


Well - it's official. After the slacker we were waiting on finished writing his testimony today (uh... that's me) - we turned in our application to our agency and we are back in the adoption game.

We have a ways to go but Laura is like a dossier champion - so I have little doubt she'll have it done in no time.

In talking with the girls recently about out family, Meron had this to say:

"I want a bruvver."
When she was asked why she wanted a brother, her reply was quick, sweet and both heart-warming and heart-breaking at the same time:
"Because I already have one bruvver but he is not coming here. We need a bruvver that will be in our house."
Be. Still. My. Heart.

And the next logical question is usually "What'll it be - another girl or a boy?" Well...


We're not gonna find out the gender this time! We're leaving it up to God - letting Him surprise us. Your will God. Your way.

We plan on keeping birth order but outside of that - it's on Him.

So that's what we're up to lately - we would LOVE for you guys to pray along with us - we'll be firing up the old prayer warrior email list again soon. Many, many thanks to you guys who go to Him on our behalf time and time again. Couldn't do it without ya!

Somewhere out there - born or unborn - another little Hoffman is chilling, waiting for the right time.

LH4 - we're coming to get ya!
