well today i have been doing alot of thinking of my father, he passed away 9 years ago tomorrow. i can only imagine how he would of reacted to our adopting the boys. im sure he would of love them as much as we all do already. my brother in law finally was moved out of ICU but now we wait for him to get strong enough for open heart surgery to remove a fungus that has built up around his heart from the infection.

almost christmas

well today is the sunday before christmas .which means 2008 is almost gone and hopefully we will have an exciting 2009 with our young sons home. we continue to pray for Mike (brother in law) he is still in ICU and last night things didnt look to good for him , but the power of pray seems to have helped some and they got him stable again. Thank GOD for his awesome healing power. everyone keeps asking me if we heard any news on the boys yet. it is heartbreaking to have to say no to them . we havent heard if the package has arrived in estonia yet but we pray they receive it before christmas.

christmas gifts are sent

well we are away on vacation this week and have managed to send out the christmas gifts to the children in our boys family group. we sent the boys a new set of clothes so hopefully it will give us an idea on their sizes. we are in gatlinburg all week , trying to enjoy the peace and quietness, but everywhere you look there is something we wish the boys were here to do. but hopefully this is our last vacation without our precious little boys. we continue to pray for my brother in law he is still not doing well. although he did have my brother to come visit him and he has announced he accepted Jesus as his savior . this is great news to our family now we pray mike gets a recovery or God make him comfortable .

a special angel

i found out today that there is a special little angel watching over my boys now. they say he is great with markus (takes care of him) and loves to play with aleksander and markus. this was good news for me. i know that they are not alone and they have someone to play with and watch over them . Shea is lucky this little angel is her very own little boy.

i hope people dont mess up our adoption hopes

why does people have to try and ruin something that seems to be good. i dont know everything there is to know about adoptions but i do know that every question i ask gets answered. and i never let AHI choose my homestudy agency so im sure that i was told everything that they could tell me about preparing to bring home a child. i dont know any one elses experience with barbara or diana but i know how it has gone for me. i just pray that all the unhappy people ,especially the ones who didnt even adopt the kids , would just move on with their lives and be happy as they can be. it is down hearting to think that we are so close and someone could possibly mess it up over stupidity. on an update , my brother in law is still in ICU and could be for quite sometime. but his liver and kidneys are working a bit.

its hard not to be happy

well last night we spent the night at the hospital our brother in law was rushed to the er and placed into ICU , he had pnuemonia and it turned aseptic. liver and kidneys shutting down and things dont look good for him. we pray for him . i thought there is never a moments rest for our family. then today Melonie tells me that my little angel Markus is walking. when we last saw him in july he wasnt walking and they wasnt sure if he would. when i read he was walking it made my heart rush with excitement. i hope that some day the boys will understand just how much we love them before we even brought them home.
