Okay, you know you can't live here w/out having some "bad" happening, right? As you all know, Nik has lost his implant in the woods. Gone forever. Used metal detectors and spent countless hours searching through the leaves, remember?:
Warren stopped by home. Alyona will need the tonsillectomy. I'll schedule another time as next weekend we are going camping! Near Charlotte. Can't wait. Have to find the campgrounds first. Two of the nights we have plans w/ families we are visiting. I think it will be a nice getaway w/ all that is going on here. We are having dinner w/ my cousin and her family this Sunday evening. So, lots of gatherings coming up.
Oh, the mini dossier was apostilled and sent off. Hooray! This is only a small piece but every piece done leads to a wonderful finished picture. Can't wait. We are indeed finally getting that homestudy paperwork sent off. In reality, it could have been done by now & we would have had our homestudy completed. But, money tends to get in teh way of adoption every time. So, had to be patient. I have a whole post coming up of what is going on w/ the funding of everything. suffice it to say, we desperately need some help in that department and to get the word out about these children. My heart is breaking for my kids. I happen to find a site that does humanitarian work in Bulgaria. Had a picture of one of the orphanages my child is at. To see the kids in their cribs and the sadness of it all, really does get to me. One of the kids I saw I could have sworn was Little Bit. However, you can never tell by the pictures. All I know is it struck be to the core that she was stuck in that crib. I know all the paperwork is set for the safety of the kids. But sometimes, you just wish it didn't take so dog gone long or that there would be some type of expediting waiver for those who've done this before and have proven the kids are better & thriving at home. But, there's not so you have to wait. The kids have to wait. Haven't they waited long enough? Don't they deserve to start their life? I need to do my part and that has to be fundraising to get these kids home. Some do indeed need medical attention and the sooner the better. AGain, more on adoption stuff a little later.
Just wanted to say hello and that it has been a little hectic around here. Got a bunch of posts in the wings but nothing finished quite yet. Have to look for this implant now again. Enjoy your week everyone. It is going to be beautiful here. We love the outdoors at our house so most the time you'll find us outside. KIds playing while Warren cooks dinner on the grill. Love it. More posts to come. One about the adoption stuff and one regarding fundraising which now has to become a priority. Now, if anyone wants to come here and play detective, please feel free to help find Nik's implants so he can hear again. Thanks.
