Just a little update

Wanted to share with our 2 readers out there that D is out of the hospital and back at school.  PTL!  We still haven’t been able to talk with her but I’m happy to know she’s better and at school again.  This news came from A who we talked to on Tuesday.  She sounded very well and happy so that made of course made momma happy.

As far as the adoption, things seem to be slowing down in Latvia right now.  I don’t know if it’s the number of families that have traveled lately or if people are on vacation in the winter time there but I really think this part of the waiting is the hardest.  At first I thought we’d have them by Halloween, then I thought by Thanksgiving, but now I’m just praying for Christmas.

I am not a patient person and this is really difficult for me.  Our caseworker says we should be hearing something from the ministry soon.  I’ve been checking my email several times a day just looking for confirmation that they even have our translated dossier.

On that note, we are still raising travel funds.  We have a big, all day scrapbooking event planned for November 12th.  Details for it can be found here.

We are also looking for items for a silent auction to be held that day as well.  If you have something you’d like to donate please email me at  We are looking for anything from gift certificates to tickets for sporting events.  Whatever you have that you are willing to donate.

We are getting closer to getting D and A back with us.   Blessings friends!
