Gathering

I have really been looking forward to the ws gathering in KC this weekend. My mother-in-law is able to come with us and I can't wait for her to meet everyone, especially little miss Abi. It will be the third one we've gone to and it's crazy because I still always get a little emotional after going to them. I'm really not sure why - it's probably a mixture of amazement at how similar these children are (they walk alike, talk alike, look alike, it's just amazing to me) and then sadness because you love them so much, all the while feeling the heartache because they struggle with so much. This time, more than anything, I'm just excited for Wanda to go with us - so far Bob and I have gone to these by ourselves and it will be great to share our 'ws family' with Wanda. Don't worry - I'll take tons of pictures ;)

You better take tons of pictures!! I can't post them online until I get my computer back and I can't wait to get one of Lindy, Abi and Payton together and I know there are a another couple of little girls about the same age coming now too. I can't wait either :)

It was soooooo awesome to see you all! Payton is so charming and getting bigger each time! You both are such great parents. God knew what He was doing when He gave you Payton. I know it can be challenging but we were so impressed with how well you love your daughter! Feel free to throw stuff by us as we've been thru so much already - Jenny is our thrill and we've been blessed so much with her! I can say that it gets better as they grow up and school has helped in so many ways. Cant wait to see you all again - wish you guys were closer! Hugs, Wendi and ERic and Ms. Jennyluuuuu
