Around here

Not much is new around here. Just waiting around here for the 25th to come. That is when the new judge takes bench and we should be able to put some pressure on. Pray with us!

We had a big storm last night but it only lasted less than an hour. It was kinda nice because it made me feel like I was home in fall weather!

We took most of the children on field trip to this ranch. One of the volunteers lined it up for us to come, see the horses and they each went on a short ride. M. loved it and one of the first ones in the saddle. She smiled the whole time. When the adoption is final I will post some pictures, I promise.

J. made it home safely. He sounded very tired and said he is freezing. Must be a shock to the system! I am NOT looking forward to going home to freezing tempuratures and I am sure M. will not enjoy it! The kids at home liked the gifts we bought them. We got L. a leather bracelet and quiver made of animal skin. C. got a bracelet and a painting for her room. K. got a bracelet and a small purse. E. and S. got cute little african shirts. We also bought a few batiks and a drum for the family.

So sorry for the continued delays. I so know how that feels.

When we went to Ghana to finalize the adoption of our children (in 2008) we thought that we would only be gone 2 weeks. After 4 weeks, I finally came home (to the 8 children we had left home alone). Jim stayed another 2 weeks (for a total of 6 weeks) before he could bring our new children home.

We did, however, see reasons for the delays (in hindsight), so I hope that you will seek the Lord ... ask Him what He has for you during this time there ... and do all you can to make each day the very BEST that you can make it.

I KNOW it is hard ... but God can sustain you and grow you through this time.

Big Hugs ... Prayers ... and Blessings to you,

Laurel :)
