5 Weeks and Nothin' Yet

Still haven't heard a darn thing. I'm trying to be ok with the wait. I know that so many people have waited longer than us, but so many have waited so much less too. I have to keep reminding myself that these few days/weeks will soon be forgotten and we will be basking in the fullness of a family of 5.

On another note, we have received some WONDERFUL news for one of our fellow Dong Nai families. They have received DOJ approval and will be on the road to getting their little guy soon. They have waited for 16 months for this step. It was way overdue. There are still two other families that we are close to that still are waiting on this approval. Please continue to pray for speedy approvals for them.

On yet another fun note, my parents and my brother and his family had dinner together in Oregon and they got on Skype and I was able to see everybody including my new nephew and my niece who is growing so fast. It was fun to see her sing Itsy Bitsy Spider and tell me her name. She now calls herself "Timmy," I'm don't remember all of the details of why, but she can't say the "c" or the "k" sounds very well, so she changed her name for the time being. Just the boost that I needed. So, I spent most of the day on the computer and didn't get a whole lot done today, but had a lot of fun!
