Good news!!

Our Lifesong matching grant of $3,000 has been fulfilled!!  We did it!!  Or should I say, you did it!!

I received word that our goal has been met!  What a relief!  Finally, some very good news.

To all that donated, I thank you!  From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!!  If I could take you all out to dinner and show my thanks, I truly would!!  But let me just tell you, there are a bunch of you!!  🙂

If you ever want to make a person feel loved, you have.  My family and I feel it more than ever!!  And, we appreciate it more than ever!!

I will focus on that today, the love that I feel from our family and friends because everything else about this adoption is putting me again in the depths of despair!

We have officially been waiting now for over 7 weeks for our LOA.  Ugh!!

As I watch the adoption online boards, there are families that are just now getting their LOA’s and one has been waiting for 150 days!!  That is AWFUL!!  Another family received their LOA after 33 days!!  WHAT??

There truly is no rhyme or reason to why they come as late or as quickly as they do.  It is what it is!!

Well, there is one reason why they come early, it’s a medical expedite.  If your child has special needs that require medical intervention quickly, they can hurry you through the  process.  I am thankful that Peanut does not need medical intervention right now, she just needs her family!  And her family needs her.

So, I will wait.

I will wait for my children’s passports to come in.

I will wait for the ever illusive LOA to show up!!

I will wait because no matter what I do, I cannot make them materialize out of thin air.  (But do not think I haven’t tried!!  I have thought positive all week!!)

I so wish this is where I was waiting!! 🙂

Day 50 of our wait for LOA………………………………..:(

    Heidi, do you remember when you were pregnant and the time craweled by? You couldn’t wait to meet your beautiful baby. During that nine months your body was changing every day in miraculous ways to support your growing child. There were complex hormone changes, amniotic fluid was produced in greater amounts, your placenta grew in size to provide nutrition for a rapidly growing little person. All this occurred incrementally just as it was needed. While all this was going on in your body you and Jeremy were preparing in other ways. You bought baby furniture, made financial arrangements and arranements at work, you read books and asked a million questions of your friends and realtives, you prayed for a safe delivary and a healthy baby. All of this was preparing you emotionally, spiritually and physically for a new little person to join your lives and in due time that’s exactly what happened. This is all part of co-creating with God. That is exactly what is going on now. Everything is happening just as it should to prepare you and your family for this little person to join your lives . When everything is ready and the time is perfect little Molly will join you. I am so proud of you and your family. I cannot wait to see the first picture of you all as a family!
    I love you!
    Aunt Jeannie
