Its not a tool, its a tool!

Ivy has always been particular about her speech, but about a year ago she started dropping the "s" off of the front words.  Especially words with a consonant next like stop or school.  Her uncle became Uncle Cott instead of Scott.  That kind of thing.  I think it had something to do with her teeth taking forever to come in. (She didn't get the last of her bottom front teeth until December).  Anyways we are constantly reminding her to say her s's.  A couple of weeks ago she asked me where her {s}tool was.   Darin brought it into the bathroom and said "Here is your tool!", purposely leaving the s off just like she does.  
Ivy looked up at him and said " Dad its not a tool, its a tool!"

Need Your Prayers {again!}

You know when things happen and you know its taken a long time to set it in motion, but in the end things happen way too quickly and certain things are out of your control?!  Well here we are at that point in our lives again where we need all the prayers we can get.
Last night we were put in back in contact with a friend from Summit County Colorado.  She has since moved to LA and we are in Washington.  Amy knows of a sweet girl who had something very unfortunate and terrible happen to her.  And now being 2 weeks away from delivering a baby that was a result of that she has decided to place that baby for adoption.  As you may have heard we have been starting the paperwork for adoption.  
I told Amy last night that we were most definitely interested and to put us in contact with whoever we needed to get in touch with.  When she called this morning he told her there was another couple interested but he was intrigued by us and our connection to Guatemala. {The girl is Guatemalan, and that is where Darin served his mission.} Amy feels strongly that things can work out for us  But we need prayers.  LOTS OF THEM! 
We love you all and appreciate all of you in our lives and would really appreciate your added faith to ours that we can bring another sweet baby into our home.  
Darin, Jenn and Ivy
