About Me

I have adopted 4 children from a specific orphanage in Eastern Europe and I want to see more children redeemed from that orphanage and brought into families. I want to make sure that the children who are still left behind in that place are never forgotten.

We Must Be Getting Somewhere Because . . . .

The refrigerator/freezer broke. I really would like to cry right now. I worked on Cody's adoption paperwork till 3 am. I was so glad to finally see progress toward his adoption. His worker told our agency worker that if we got it done by tomorrow then hopefully we can pass Texas ICPC next week. It was long and hard, but we got it done!

I then when in to realize that the refrigerator that I had hoped just had a door left cracked or something is officially NOT WORKING RIGHT! I had to clean out the other freezer in order to make room for the most important stuff from both freezers to be put into the one that is now working. I then moved all the stuff from the broken refrigerator into the broken freezer. The freezer isn't "freezing", but it is cooling. I managed to move the refrigerated medications into the other refrigerator.

Brent or I will have to go early tomorrow to purchase another refrigerator. Then I will have to beg for them to bring it. I can't even get enough milk for a whole 24 hours into that one crammed refrigerator. I kept some fruits that were ok to do so with in the half working fridge and added freezer packs just in case. Now I'll have to stand guard to keep the kids from opening it in order to preserve the cold that it is producing. The water and ice in the door isn't working either.
Oh well, I guess if we weren't on the right path then the devil would leave us alone. All the Reece's Rainbow families can tell you about all the ways that the devil comes at you when he fears you will love God's children and bring them out of his hold.


  1. Oh, that stinks!!! It is strange that the ice/water quit working too. I wonder how much it would be to call a repairman, because something sounds fishy.

  2. We've been thru that more than once!! So frustrating!! We have drunk powdered milk for the last 25 years, you can mix it as you drink it- we keep cold water in tupperware pitchers in the fridge. If the fridge breaks down we just dump water. We have no room for all of the milk we drink in our 2 refridges! (((HUGS)))
