Random updates

Tomorrow Mariah will have her casts removed and hopefully the hospital really did put a rush order on her new AFOs so she can get them fitted and walk out of there :)

Some have asked me about D's hosting expenses.  We sold a vehicle and paid them.  He is coming.  I have seriously considered selling my wedding band to pay for V to come too, but it was only $90 when we bought it so I don't think it would cover the costs and there is no point to selling it if it won't pay the entire amount.  My heart just breaks thinking of my poor little V wondering why he can't come back too.  He thinks of this as his home now, and I keep reminding myself that soon it will be. Forever.  Talk about walking around with a heartache though!  Never take for granted being able to hold your babies tight.

We are STILL waiting on Phillip's passport to come in.  We sent off for W's and Phillip's at the same time.  W's came in.  We got a letter asking for a statement as to how Phillip's got mutilated.  Yeah... High Efficiency washers are a beast.  We sent the statement well over a week ago.  Hoping they'll just send the darn thing because we need it to complete our dossier.

We got our fingerprint appointment from USCIS.  Its June 6.  We are trying to work something out to get up there and walk in before that, but we have 3 little kids and a full time job to work around...

We are still right at halfway for our fundraising.  We have estimated that we'll need $40K to complete this adoption and we have raised right about $19,500.  Please click on our fundraising link and share share share even if you can't donate!  Every time we have a big waive of publicity, donations come in!

So sorry to hear how difficult it was to raise money to bring D for the summer. I did help a little, but I couldn't spare more :(

Loved Wy and M's new photos!

I always seem to forget to thank those who did help. I do so appreciate those who did contribute, but hosting is expensive so we had to do what we had to do to get our boy here! I am in LOVE with Wy and M's new pictures too!!

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
