The Wait Is Over...'s time. It's time to let you in on that little secret of's time to let the cat out of the's get the point...on with the announcment....

There is a Steven Curtis Chapman song called Dive. It came on the radio as I drove into downtown Minneapolis on my way to pick up Jason back in February 2006. We were going to our first information meeting at Children's Home and Family Services. I had always known that I wanted adopt some day. Coming from an adoptive family myself, I knew that I wanted to grow my own family that way. I was nervous for this particular meeting, because after all, when you are married, you don't get to make choices based solely on yourself and what you have another half to consider...another opinion...another voice in the mix. Jason was open to going to this meeting with me and wanted to learn more about adoption. As I was driving, this song came on and the words seemed to stick in my head...

And in a rush I hear a voice
That's telling me it's time to take the leap of faith
So here I go... unknown...a new chapter of our lives...another child in our family. I truly felt that God has called us to adoption and it was time for us to take our leap of faith and trust God and His plan for our family. By the end of the meeting, Jason was signing his name to papers and felt the tug on his heart and the voice of God telling us He had great plans for our family. We took the leap of faith and it's been an amazing journey. Ben joined our family in September of that year and he is an amazing boy and I can't tell you how my heart melts when he tells me in his own special way "I love ya and I cove ya Mom" while we snuggle together at bedtime.

Crazy as life would have it, this song has popped up in my life at particular moments, reminding me that I need to have faith in God and His plans for my life.

But we will never know the awesome power
Of the grace of God...

...Along came Lily. And at a very specific time in my life. I time when I needed God's love desperately. It was the first anniversary of my Grandfather's death. I woke up that morning with such a heavy heart. Tears had flooded my eyes the moment that day started. But God had something special planned for show me that He loves me with a crazy love and that He was still the same God I had grown to love and trust my life with. He gave me a present that I will never forget. The phone rang and as I answered it, I realized that I was on a call with not only Jason, but our social worker at the agency. He had called to tell us we had a daughter waiting for us in Korea. Lily was salve on my wound. The news of her saved me that day. Eight short weeks later we were in Korea meeting Miss Jeeah and my life has been blessed profoundly because of her.

So if you take my hand
We'll close our eyes and count to three
And take the leap of faith
Come on let's go...

 ...Along comes Cora. We have a daughter waiting for us once again in Korea. Jason and I are taking that leap of faith. It was December 22, 2010. The phone rang at 9:04am. I wasn't expecting it and I just about fell over. Cora Jihee was born on July 15, 2010. We truly feel that this little girl is exactly what God has for our family. I can't wait to meet her and get to know her. We couldn't be more excited. The Hublers are soon to be a family of six! Four. Children. Unbelievable...I'm still trying to wrap my brain around this. They are predicting travel hopefully some time in May. Woot! Woot!

Get ready we come!!

THUD...ahhh, pick yourself back up off that floor...I did. :)
