busy, busy, busy

I will just do a quick little update because I have to get in bed! I am going to be going to Seattle with Sarah, her 2 daughters and Helande and Christella for 3 days. I need to get up really early so we can be on the road and get to Seattle Childrens' Hospital by 9ish. Sarah's daughter (adopted from Haiti) has spina bifida and is going for some appointments there. While we are there we are hoping to share the girls' story with the doctors and maybe get care lined up for them. Pray that they will be compassionate for their needs.

Last weekend we went to a church retreat up near Mt. Baker. It was a rainy weekend but we all had fun. The kids did pretty well despite the rain, and they were soaked by the end of the day on Sat.! We got home today around noon. I had a lot of laundry to do!

We are expecting our paperwork back from the Haitian consulate on Tuesday and then when I get home we can make copies of everything and send the whole thing to Haiti. Wow I can't believe we are this close. I have also been applying for more grants and praying that we will be accepted by one or two!
