A Few Scattered Thoughts

Thank you so much to those of you who have helped us out by purchasing some jewelry.  The adoption community is an awesome place to be and I would be lost without your wisdom and support.  You all "get it" and I love you for it. 

I have moved the fundraising info to the side column of the blog and will leave it there for a while and add to it occasionally.   If you see something you like, let me know.  Also feel free to spread the word about our fundraising efforts.


Can you say snow?   We woke up here this morning in our sleepy little town to a few flurries.  I was a bit dissapointed because I had been hearing forecasts of 6-8 inches!  However, it hasn't stopped snowing for a second today.  Now we have about 4 inches on the ground with no sign of stopping.  Today has turned into a cozy snow day.  Love it!  We have done a mountain of laundry, made Green Chili Cheese Soup and hot rolls, and snuggled up all day.


Today marks 60 days waiting for that ever elusive LOA.  At the beginning of the week, there was a rush of LOAs reported, and I became very hopeful for ours.  But, no go.  I am really hoping for it before Ch*inese New Year as the CC*A breaks for a week to celebrate.  This is the one most variable waiting period for SN adoption.  It could arrive in 1 month, 2 months, or 4 months.  With Sydney, we waited an agonizing 5 1/2 months.  Torturous!  I think that is why I have an underlying fear about our wait time.  I know that God holds the time of our LOA in his hands and I trust him completly.  However I also tend to be a bit of a worrier, but I am working on that. 


I have several appointments set up for this week that will give me a little more to blog about.  In all reality, nothing much is going on around here that is blog-worthy. 
For now, I will leave you with this promise from our God:

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. 
God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing....
Psalms 68:5-6a
