Remembering what He did for me when I feel I am unfairly treated or feel like I am doing too much for others with nothing in return. I should never feel sorry for myself, or ever want to ask "Why me Lord?" The answer is simply, why not me? .

Stalk the Mailman

I am starting to stalk my mailman, and for good reason! We received our notarized copies of our completed homestudy in the mail yesterday! So, another copy is off to CIS. Now when we get 2 more notarized reference letters, we are ready to take our dossier to the county to get certified. I did go to another very nice MD and get my notarized medical letter done, by the way. I am so glad to be moving along and at least we are now waiting for our 171-H. That means, that when we receive that in the mail, (in about 8 to 10 weeks) we will be able to send our dossier to Ethiopia. That means we will then go on the official 3 - 9 month waiting list to receive our phone call about our precious baby girl.

Great News Today On a Great Spring Day!

I was beginning to get impatient to hear that our Homestudy was not sent off to CIS yet. Well, just got the e-mail that our Homestudy is officially going out in tomorrows mail to CIS! Thank you LORD! Now, we have to hustle with the paper shuffle. Anyway, the last 2 days have been absolutely beautiful outside and Bradley has been playing outside nonstop the last 2 days. Can you see the artwork on the patio? And, my fish have survived their first winter with us, now if they just can survive the dogs!

Tennessee Actually Celebrates When Snow Falls

I know that any of you that live anywhere north of middle Tennessee think we all is crazy down here when we get excited at the mention of a snow flurry. But the past several winters we havent gotten any snow for our kids to go out and play in. Well, last weekend we had 70 degree weather and today we got some snow! Not much, but enough for Bradley to go out and play in with his friend Haley. It was gone by 1:00 : (

Princess Sara Butterball

Ok. After the last two posts that have still got me in a funk, I thought I would post something on a lighter note. The new addition to our family this weekend, Bradleys hamster Princess Sara Butterball. Isnt she adorable? Ok so maybe I am just wishing I was introducing you all to our Annsleigh, so this is just practice. But you gotta admit she is kinda cute!
