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.

A Little Retail Therapy :)

My day started at 6 am.  I got ready and took Unique to a follow up for some allergic skin reaction that she had.  She is doing well and it should be all clear soon.  I then went to Walmart and picked up a few things.  By 8 am I was already fed up with all the waiting that I am doing with waiting for a date to hold my little boy.  I've determined that I should NOT get up so early, because it just causes me to be fed up earlier.  lol

I decided to do all my contacting of those who are driving me crazy early.  I've sent an email to Cody's worker BEGGING her to help us get him home quickly.  I've called the IRS taxpayer advocate and spoke with him.  I've called USCIS and found out we still have no officer for our international adoption.  I emailed one of the Senators that I sent a request to help for to once again request help. 

I received some cute pictures of Cody.  His therapists took him out to Build A Bear and the Nestle shop as a going away thing.  So sweet!  Now we just need a date for him to 'go away'!  He also received his package from us and his foster mother took a picture of him enjoying his sticker book.  I love pictures because they give me hope.  At the same time - HE IS SO CUTE, so I only want to hold him more.  I'm very thankful for the pictures though. 

I decided as "retail therapy" I would try and find matching outfits for he and Julianne.  I wanted something they could both wear to his first church service.  I found what I wanted and I'm so excited.  :)

Julianne's Outfit :)

Here is a link to Zulily if you'd like to find some really cool stuff.  I just recently found the site via a friend and I'm pretty impressed with their ever changing stock and large variety of styles and brands.  There are new brands every day and each sale only lasts for 3 days.  http://www.zulily.com/invite/aunroe517
It's almost time to get this crew ready and head for my Aunt's house for a cookout and fun.  I am already tired!

So Tired of Waiting

I am so tired of waiting to hear about when I can hold my little boy.  We really thought he'd be home in June, but June is almost over.  We've heard nothing.  I've still never spoke to or received an email from his adoption worker.  Maybe she always handles her cases this way, but I have never ever had an adoption with no contact with the child's worker.  I really need to have information.  I can wait so much better if I know what is going on.  As things are I really might be going to lose my mind.  Each day I wake up and check email off and on all day.  I wait for a phone call.  I pray that whoever is the hold up will do whatever it is that needs done.  I pray that they will imagine how they would feel if they were on this side.  I mean good grief, if I didn't love him and want to spend "forever" with him then we wouldn't be a good "forever family". 

Please pray that we will have him here with us soon.  Pray for his adjustment period.  Pray for the foster parents who have been taking care of him since before he even stole my heart.  Pray for his worker and anyone else involved with his case.  Pray for me as I wait.
