signing time videos

I am not being paid to say this. I just need to tell you that there arent enough adjectives to describe how wonderful these videos are. You might not know that Signing time videos were just released with Spanish options. Just in time for them to go to Ecuador with me. They are so sweet and perfect for me to watch with my new daughter. I can put it in to play in Spanish and have English captions to know what is being said while we learn together. HOW GREAT IS THAT?! I have to tell you that if you have been sitting on the fence waiting to purchse these in any format. Just do it. My daughter commented on how wonderfully made they are. The music is great, the children are sweet and even as an adult I just let it play over and over as I painted on the mural. It is actually helping me with my spanish..... really!? Who knew?! I am very visual and the audio CDS are just taking time.......

Gods timing is perfect.
He still knows how to sneak up on me and take my breath away.

Still no pictures of the Nursery mural.
I almost cried yesterday when we left and it wasnt done.
I cannot sign my name on it until it pleases me.
This will be our last Sunday.
My heart is so full.
Many tears.
God knows.
He is holding my little one until I get there.

Orphanage Director wrote, "I received an e-mail from the child psychologist and Gs therapy is going well. She is affectionate towards your photos. (the children carry around their photo albums and kiss the pictures and sleep with them.) Many many happy tears. I hope she will love the people in the pictures. the people that will take her away from everything/ everyone she has known and loved.

My sweet little G........
Mommy IS COMING...........

I remain,
Under His wings,


  1. Praying for the transition!!! So EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Beautiful Anna! I love those videos too. My little one still uses signs at times though they were a bridge for us while she couldn't quite say words...but I think every child needs a language to learn and stimulation and Signing Time is a wonderful introduction to a new and valuable language in our world.

  3. WooHoo!!! Won't be long. We love those dvds here, too, although my kids pick up the signs so much faster than I do.

  4. Oh Anna, I have shed happy tears for you this morning! The hour for holding sweet G is coming and will soon be here. Our family is praying for yours as God knits you all and G together in His gracious arms of love. You are so "under His wings", protected and loved and cared for. His grace will prove sufficient every day as you transition and meld.

  5. Hi Anna,
    I don't know how to send you a note other than making a comment, but yes, by all means you may link to my post. I'm glad it was of an encouragement to you.

  6. We love those DVDs, too. My kids' favorites are "Everday Signs (Vol 3)" with the pizza song and the diaper dance, and "Leah's Farm (Vol 7)" with the signs for all the animals.

    So glad to hear they're available in Spanish - what a help for you all!


Thank you for stopping by. We would love it if you left a comment.
