Hello Again! It's Been a Long While. . .

A couple of pics from 4th of July!

Well, it has certainly been a long while since my last post, and it is time to check back in. You have probably assumed that there hasn't been much "adoption" news over the past few months, and if that was your assumption, then you were correct. We are patiently awaiting the news that TWCA is lifting it's "hold" on their program 3 (that has been in place since last November), and that referrals are starting up again. It appears that the restructuring of the program has taken place, there is confidence and high hope that the restructuring will meet the scrutiny of AIT and prevent further raised eyebrows. But, now all that is left are the government visits to "pass" the new system. It could be another couple of months (or more if we are realistic).

All the while we continue to pray that the Lord will lead us to our daughter He has chosen for us. And, we are keeping our hearts open to His leading should He direct us on to a new path. Just being quiet and patient for now.

But, while the adoption journey has been at a long-time standstill, other things are happening like crazy!! I have completed my album project! It has been the tip-top of my bucket list, and I truly believe this record was something I was supposed to complete prior to our adoption being complete. I have had an amazing music journey this year, and it involved singing, recording and, surprisingly, (writing songs!!) My album has 4 of my originals on it, and I have about 15 more that are waiting for me to complete them. Absolutely thrilling!!! Please check out my music website at and pass it along to your friends. It is my independent project, so I am relying strictly on word of mouth to promote it. You can hear some samples on the site. And, if you read my music blog, you can read the stories behind my original songs. I have to say that I am ecstatic over this!! God has been very good to me this year in blessing me with music. The album will be released for sale on September 16th on and iTunes.

Anna Grace is doing beautifully in 2nd grade and is still loving horseback riding lessons. It looks like we are blessed again with a wonderful teacher this school year. She leaves in the morning happy and comes home smiling each day. I am SO thankful for that. :)

Hopefully, more adoption news will be on the horizon soon. Please keep us in your prayers as we seek the Lord's leading in our adoption and in this album release as well.

I'll post again soon, and I'll do a better job from now on with consistent updates. If any of you are on Facebook, check out my "Kristy White Music" page as well. You can become a "fan" if you are so inclined ;), and it will keep you up to date on the latest music news.

Thanks for reading!
