Another week closer
A little closer to being a party of six. Update #1: 100 t-shirts have been bought buy us to resell to all of you! They are in print and hopefully be week's end we'll have figured out how to have a button on the blog to buy them. The family that runs www.missionthreads.com is another adoptive family that helps people like us become whole. I don't know how God will use Ryan and I or our kids to help other families adopt, but I think it will always be a mission for us beyond getting our boys home. Update #2: No court date yet. We updated our home study this week so that it specifically states that we'll take two non-related children. $200 later, it is in the mail and thankfully did not need to be authenticated. Whew! Our coordinator promises that this won't be a hold up. Update #3: It's a little emotionally fragile here. I find that I try NOT to think too much about Etienne and Daniel because I am so overwhelmed. I say specific prayers and then don't think about the details of their lives right now. All the parents out there know the feeling of ache that you have when your family isn't together. That is how we feel. But also a peace of knowing that God is seeing this whole amazing miracle through.
