I have never been so proud of him as I am now. With all the blood and sweat he put into training for it, he's obviously devastated about not completing it, yet he's turning it into a learning situation for everybody, especially the boys. He's going to pick himself back up and get back in the saddle, doing what he loves....only not to the extent of another full IM again! He's such a positive and strong example to my boys, which makes me love him even more....and I didn't know that was possible..:)
|LOVE this one of Ben running alongside him! The sign said "TEAM COCO"|
We had our good friends there to support him, and I'm so glad we did! Amy helped me with the kids, and Jeff was able to encourage Jon on the run. And Thank goodness Shelley kept Gage, because there is no way I could've dealt with all of this having to keep an eye on little G-Man too! I am beyond blessed to have such a good group of supportive friends that would do anything to help me at the drop of a hat. LOVE my friends!! :)
Onto a different note, I just got a call from Great Wall Adoption and CCAA is sending out a list of kids that are available for adoption tonight. She said they will be looking for out little girl and we will get a call late tonight if she finds her. From what I understand, it's quite a frenzy with all the agencies trying to find matches and locking files. Please say a prayer for us that our little girl is on this list. It's hard to be patient, but it helps me to know that God already knows exactly who she is, and when we will see her, and is protecting her until then.
