My REALLY good…exciting…better than a movie news!!!

OK–I did not, have not and probably will not hear from AGCI today whether our home study was approved yet or not. I’m constantly reminded that the Lord is in control and He is the one carefully putting us in line where He needs us to be. He reminds me. Friends remind me. Me reminds […]

Our weekend in Tennessee…

Is it okay to be totally jealous?
Just kidding.
So glad you got to meet and enjoy the friends I miss so dearly!
The Halloween photos are precious too!
Love & Blessings from Hong Kong,

So jealous…in a good kind of way…sort of 🙂 WISH we could have been there…it looks like a WONDERFUL weekend!


Peter & Amy - November 2, 2009 - 5:43 pm

Looks like an awesome halloween. I don't think you should worry about the 5-7 business days. That is what they told us and it only took them 2 days to review the home study last week so I bet you should get news very soon! Let us know 🙂

Fall fun…

My only adoption update today is I got a phone call today that went like this: “Have you or Richard ever lived in another county in GA besides Fulton???” “Me, no. Richard…would college count?” “Yep” Awwww man. I knew exactly where she was going. Richard went to UGA in Clarke County. Gotta call Clark County […]

I love your attitude. It is teaching me so much.

I am not adopting (yet-oohh…weird to type that :)–sometimes those timelines many of my wonderful adoptive mommies have freak me out–but you have so encouraged me by your attitude. Many of them encourage me too, but…

Just wanted you to know YOU are an encouragement.

We are right there with you. Who knew it would take so long to approve a homestudy. Our dossier is just sitting on the table waiting to be shipped with the approved homestudy. I keep telling myself though that this is all in God's timing, so since it is not ready, it must mean our baby is not ready.

Happy birthday Richard!!!

Today’s my hubby’s birthday. He’s in a meeting ALL day–so although he normally gets an email to my blog—he won’t be in the office today so he won’t see this post until tomorrow. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! He’s coming home early so we can hang out a bit—Laney is off to gymnastics at 5pm and he and […]

Andrea, Ethiopian food is my FAVORITE, but I haven't found any good restaurants around here… where are you going? Happy birthday to Richard! Today is my brother's 21st birthday and our nephew's 1st birthday, too. Big day! Thanks again for working with us on Monday. The little one slept hard and long after that. He wore himself out screaming for you! We continue to pray (and rejoice!) for you as you chase down this new little love. Keep the updates coming!

That is the only problem I have with foreign countries, the food! All I ate in East Asia was peanut butter sandwiches and chocolate ice cream from the man down the street. Oh, I hope Richard likes his wonderful meal! A lot of people like Ethiopian food! I guess I should try it!
