This week is looking up

This week started off a little frustrating. Monday, I still hadn't received the TN documents, the notary didn't show up to my doctor's appointment, my SW had to cancel (she had a VERY good reason) my HS. Monday was a very hard day. Well, since then, my documents came, the notary showed up to Bill's appointment this morning, and took care of all the medical forms (I REALLY hope they are done right!), and I will talk to my SW when she gets back on Monday. We got our taxes done, and some other things done. So, now the only paperwork we are lacking for our HS is Bill's verification of employment (no one knows who is supposed to write it, sooooo annoying) and one more letter of reference. The last letter of reference should be given to us on Monday, as we are having a double date with the couple that is writing it.

I started working on my dossier stuff. Don't know if what I'm doing is right, but I want to get things moving, and doing things that I have control over helps me wait. If it's not done right, that's OK, I don't feel like I am wasting my time, because if it is right, we are ahead!

After the tragic news yesterday, I want to get Patrick home faster then ever. Since he is already 5, we are living on borrowed time with him being able to stay at the orphanage instead of the institution. I can't describe to you the way I feel when I think about him being transferred. Please pray that he is able to stay where he is at until we get there. I am trying so hard to get things done as fast as possible.

Which brings me to another positive. Although it is not in the account yet, I know of some more money that is coming in. We have less than $10,000 to go. We are so close! The garage sale is coming along great. I have someone bringing more items today, and then again on Monday. There are 3 other people that I know are actively gathering things for me. Hopefully that will bring in some funds as well.

So, all in all, this week is turning out good. We have gotten a lot done.


  1. When is the garage sale???? Remember I have stuff!!! My heart has been broken by the lose of those sweet baby girls...thank GOD they are resting safe tonight in His arms!

  2. The garage sale will be in early spring. I'm not sure of an exact date yet....I'm waiting to see how long the warm weather lasts! I remember you have stuff, you are one of the 3 people I knew about, so thank you again! I will let you know when I have a date in mind, and I can come get whatever you have.

    I also find peace in knowing that the girls are resting safely in God's arms. They are feeling for the first time waht the arms of love feel like, and are in peace themselves. It does, however, place an urgency in my heart to bring Patrick home. I want to hold him in my arms first, God can hold him later!!

  3. Hey there! Big hugs to you. I may have some stuff to donate to your garage sale as well. Good luck with everything.

  4. Thanks Lisa, that would be great. Let me know, and I can pick up anything you come up with!!
