Quick Update
Monday, August 20, 2007
No, we didn't close on Friday, praise God! We thought maybe it would be tomorrow, but the Title company is being slow which is still fine with us.

We spent 10 hours at the mobile home today painting, trying to help them get it ready for us. It is slow going. We go back tomorrow to paint some more. I'm exhausted and about to go to bed, yes at 8:30 p.m.

Things are just super crazy here. So I'm not online hardly at all. I'll try to check in every now and then.

Thanks for asking about us, I'll try and do better at keeping you posted!

Wow, moving is such a big chore, huh? But in the end you will have your 'dream' house. Hoping you can get settled and get some rest soon.

What a whirlwind it has been for you all the last few weeks!! I have been thinking about you almost everyday. I wanted to let you know in the midst of my everyday life, I still remember your loss.

Can't wait to see a picture of "the Queen" in her double-wide! :)

OH Suz!! I have sort of been out of the news, as I have been so behind in blogging, and keeping up with everyone......I just found out about V....I am hurting for you.I can not even fathom your pain. I know it must be hard. But in our experience....I see now that hindsight is 20/20. While you still greive your loss, there is a reason for all that happens. I was so frustrated and "worked-up" over the hold-up and lack of dedication on the part of my social worker to finish our homestudy. I had career plans and a time limit to accomplish them. I chose my agency because they could send me to a fast area....BUT....it WAS NOT fast!! We kept waiting, and waiting, and no progress was being made, and then my social worker quit...and there was no one approved within a 200 mile radius that could pick up where she dropped the ball. I remember being angry. In the end, our paperwork eventually made it to Russia.....much, much later than was planned or expected, and it arrived the DAY BEFORE two brothers were released from the data bank, and eligible for adoption (just what we had requested, sibling boys). And there we were....waiting for them, and we have them now...but it was not how I would have planned it. But God had a different plan. I know you will have more children, or, you would not still have the desire....and all the time you prayed for V - your prayers were answered in that she was given a home with a family to love her....only not in the way you thought. Now....two children will have a home and families to love them, your very special V, and your new daughter. Remember how you said you needed to have V in order to be open to having a girl that was older, and with special diagnoses?? Well, perhaps that was V's purpose. We asked for 2 boys (brothers) age 3 and 5, and we had a 12 and 13 yr old at home. We got a referral for a 2yr old, and an 8 yr old....I was worried one would be too young, and the other much too old, but these boys are PERFECT for our family....and God chose them for us, just like He will do for you. You have the desire, continue to pray (as we all will for you and your family) and you will be directed into the way you need to go. All the best to you!!
