Happy Halloween

Just wanted to wish all of you guys out there a Happy Halloween. I am going to make an extra special effort to enjoy it because of my sweet Lindze. I had thought there might "possibly" be a chance that we would be with Little Man during Halloween but we are not. Lindze is going to be Tinkerbell this year and she is too cute in her costume. I will try to post pictures at a later time. I got off the first four hours tonight in order to carry her trick or treating. She is so excited so it should be a fun night.
No further news on the adoption front so we will have to see what happens next week. Happy Halloween Little Man. We love you!

Depressing Days

I am sure everyone has heard of all that is going on in our babies country. These have been the most depressing days lately. We have families who have been waiting since earlier this year to bring their babies home and some who have traveled very recently and some who are just waiting for a referral of their precious child. I just don't understand how a few set of people can keep these babies living in an orphanage when they have families and homes waiting for them. Do they not understand that not putting their signature on a piece of paper is leaving so many people with a giant whole in the middle of their heart. I will not go any further with my ranting because I really don't want to offend anyone with what I have to say. I am going between mad, sad, and depressed.
We just need to be doing some heavy praying that God will see that these people do the right thing. We also have to pray that he will take care of all of our little ones over there and take care of all of us who are having the worse days of our life.
I love you little man and I am sorry I can't bring you home anytime soon.

6 Months Old Today

Today Little Man is 6 months old. Happy Birthday to my sweet boy. It is also 3 months to the day since I last held him in my arms. There is no good news on the adoption front only delay after delay. I so look forward to the day we can travel back in order to bring him home but I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel at the present time. We can only hope and pray for the best. The last set of pictures helped a little but watching him grow through photos is so very depressing. Mommy and daddy will see you soon and we love you.

I got some new pictures of little man today and they were too cute. He was asleep in a few of them but he was cute nonetheless. I so miss him and was hoping we would get some good news this week but did not. We have been waiting 3 months to go back and get him and I know that is nothing compared to some of the other PAP's out there. I stay in one of those "blah" moods because he is constantly on my mind. Lindze is always aksing me when is brother coming home and I just tell her soon. She prays for him at night and it just makes me cry.
We have officially finished his room finally. My work had a baby shower last week so I am done with his room and everything I needed for it. Hopefully one of these days I will be able to post pictures of him and his room for all to see. His room is a mess right now because it is the packing room. My best friend and I went today to shop for when I travel. She was helping me figure out what all I really needed to carry for a 6 month old child. Our suitcase is going to weigh a ton.
Well, hopefully next time I post I might have some good news but we will see. Oh and I want to thank Teresa who is visiting her little girl right now for all of the wonderful pictues of our boy. She put a bright spot in my week.

I just wanted to ask all of you guys out there to keep our family in your prayers. My cousin died tonight in a MVA. He was in his early 30's and the father of 3 sons. Thank all of you out there for keeping our family in your thoughts and prayers.

Back To The Real World

Got back from vacation today. Very short and sweet due to inability to burn vacation time because hopefully Little Man will be coming home soon. It rained Tuesday so we just went browsing the outlet stores. That was okay if you did not have an almost 5 year old saying "are we going to shop all day?" Wednesday was breezy but we were able to swim nonetheless. I only went in the Jacuzzi and the heated pool. Lindze did not seem to mind the cold as ice kiddy pool but momma stayed wrapped in a towel because the wind was blowing the ice cold water on her. Lindze really like the "cacuzzi" as she called it the whole time we were in there. My mother in law is already making plans for next year and she seems to be looking forward to have two kids to love on while we are there. I had so hoped he would be home before we went but that was not to be. We will just have to enjoy watching him on the beach next year.
Anyway we are back and I have to go back to work tomorrow night. Tom is off until next week (lucky dog). One huge plus today as we were getting ready to come home was I did get a picture of Little Man on my iphone. Thank you to my fellow ICF buddy. He looks great with chubby cheeks and all. I miss him terribly but feel a little better because he does look like he is pretty healthy. I just want to hold him so bad when I look at his photo. Hopefully one of these days I will be able to post his photo so everyone can see how handsome our Little Man is.
I want to send out prayers to all of the families who are right now in or are about to go to Kyrgyzstan to pick up their babies. You guys are all in my prayers and congratulations on your Gotcha Days!

Beach Vacation

We are leaving in the AM after I get off for 4 fun filled days at the beach. Lindze is so excited about going to the beach. It has been a year since we took her on a vacation and we think this is well deserved. Hopefully soon we might hear something about when we can return to pick up our Little man.
Hopefully in the next few days I will have new pictures of Little Man. I have 2 different families who are going to try to get me some photos. We have not seen anything on him since the last week of August so I am extremely excited. I wonder how much he has grown in the last month.
Oops, got to go. Patients calling. Will update about vacation when we get back!
