Today is AhRin's 2nd birthday. It is bittersweet. We so wish we could be there to celebrate with her. We were able to send a care package with another family that is traveling next week to pick up their son! Below is a picture of all her birthday treats and a few things we sent for foster mom (scarf, vitamins, memory card)! Charlie and Jerri Lynn made special cards for her and we sent her a photo album to introduce ourselves. We hope to send a video of our family next time, so she can see us all! Sweet girl, we love you more than you know and can't wait for you to come join in the Jacobs' family!
Today we got our official acceptance to Korea!!!! So, we are officially starting the wait. We pray that God will expedite her paperwork and she will be home sooner than we think! Happy Birthday AhRin!
Our home study is finally approved!!! Now, we can get 18 forms notarized and overnighted to Dillon to get our ATK (Acceptance to Korea)! It is our official Statement of Adoption, that we want Kim, AhRin to be our daughter!! Thank you Lord for bringing this sweet girl into our lives and please hurry up her getting home!
CJ leaves in the morning at 8:00 to go out of town, so we have to get this notarized before then! Pray that we can get it done at the kids school! We have to have done before he leaves or it will delay another week:(
Jerri Lynn had her 2nd Dance Recital ever! She was in 2 dances, pre-ballet and pre-tap! She was so beautiful and knew her dances so well, and smiled the whole time! She can't wait for next year!
Ballet: A Dream is a Wish Come True (Cinderella)
Tap: A Little Sack of Sugar
We are planning a fun night to bring awareness to local and global orphan care. Our prayer is that if God is leading anyone to adopt or foster that they will be encouraged! As well as, we want to create special memories for AhRin to know that she had a whole community of family and friends praying for her and supporting our family to bring her home! Our heart truly is
Proverbs 31: 8-9
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Charlie had a game tonight and I truly am so proud of him! Not because he hit well (which he did, after a few rough games) but, because before the game the Braves were huddled up talking and Charlie said, "Coach, I think we need to pray"! Coach, responded, "Ok, Charlie would you like to pray for us?" He said, "Sure" and the whole team took off their hats, kneeled down and Charlie prayed! It brought tears to my eyes. Thank you God for giving my son a heart that wants to know you!
Yesterday we got the best present! We got a video of AhRin!! She is so adorable- this is the first time we have seen a video of her! She was feeding herself and then playing with blocks. I can't get the video to upload to this blog, but she would clap when she stacked the blocks and say, "Uh-oh" when they fell down. I love this little girl so, so much!
Below are the measurements we got of her the weight is in kg. So, she is 23 lbs.
