Some Updates!

Posted on

Just a couple things today.  I am so blessed to announce that as I went through my list of kids on here that were still waiting for a family to come for them, I was able to move 5 of them over to the My Family Found Me section!!!  Praise God!  So happy to be able to do that.  For some of you, these kids getting families is probably old news (it has been longer than I would like to admit since I’ve gone through).  However it is still worthy of a big WHOO HOO!!!!  One life at a time right?!

And…

Just a quick post to let you all know what I forgot to tell you earlier (oops!) about our little baby nugget.  We had our ultrasound some weeks ago but life has gotten the best of me again and I failed to let you all know the good news. (The photo is from our checkup the other day, got some 3D shots!)

Nugget 24 weeks

We are so happy to announce we are having another little girl!  She is just such a blessing to us already and we are so excited to meet her!

That’s all for now!

Just the Q

Posted on

I have to admit, when I started this whole blogging thing, I knew it was going to be ton of work.  Getting my blog up and running with all the content I wanted to include seemed to be a never ending project.  But you see, I thought that if I could just get all of the main content done, the actual blogging would be easy.  Ha!  Boy, was I wrong!

I constantly find myself thinking, “I am a terrible blogger.  I am disappointing my readers by not posting often enough.”  I think it is safe to say that I am probably accurate on these assumptions.  However, for someone who needs absolute quiet in order to get her thoughts written down in a reader friendly manner, my house does not provide a conducive environment to do said task.  With a less than fun pregnancy taking every ounce of my energy and a toddler who would much rather hang out about an inch away from mommy no matter where mommy is, makes writing difficult to say the least.  Now factor in the sassy pre-teen boy who as of late, simply must press every one of his mothers hot buttons (oh the eye-rolling that has taken place in my home has reached epic proportions)!   So, as you can guess, what my wonderful and amazing readers get are the leftovers: one frazzled mama.  What am I to do with a bunch of fabulously bored readers with nothing new to read?

Shall I post about how my heart is broken for Owen and all the other children in Russia who won’t get the opportunity to have a family here in the U.S.?  Or shall I scream about how angry I am that children who are in dire need will be denied the possibility of a family here, making their chances of being adopted at all very low if at all?

Like this beautiful creature.  How can they tell her “no”.  This sweet thing has gone from this:

To this:  Lina-update-Oct-2012-215x300as6z-lina-updatejan2013-279x300

In less than a year. Little Lina has wasted away. She will be 2 years old in June.

 My heart is breaking for her, for all of them.  So many faces fading away into oblivion it seems (big sigh).

Nope, I just can’t think about that now.  It tears me up, but all I can do is pray.    I can whine, and stomp my feet, but that won’t do any good.  Only God can fix this.

So what shall I blog then?

I know – I will ask you all a question or two.

Has the information on my blog done anything positive for any of you?

Has the information on my blog opened any eyes?

Yes, I know the sections are lengthy.  But truly, I need your thoughts.

I ask these things because I need to know if what God has asked me to do is doing the good that I hoped it would.

Is there any information I should add to my content on here?

Constructive criticism is good, however I do ask that when responding, all comments remain kindly worded.  Thank you!

I appreciate everyone’s feedback!

God Bless-

Fears

Posted on

With all the craziness from the Russian lawmaker fiasco in full swing, I failed to realize one very big detail.

What will happen to the kids listed on Reece’s Rainbow who are in Russia?  Will they suddenly be removed from the site?  Who will be removed?  When will this happen?

You see, I am not familiar with the different regions listed under each child so I have no clue who will be affected?  Who, of the many kids my family and I have been praying for will simply disappear?    This makes it so much more personal and I cannot even fathom what the families who were already set to adopt from here must be feeling.

I keep wondering, worrying…

Will my sweet Owen disappear?

Owen

 

For many of my readers and friends, you know Owen holds a special place in my heart.  The thought of his chances of ever getting to know the love of a family being cut down so greatly is so heartbreaking for me.  But I have no idea what country he is in?

Will he end up in some mental institution without a family?  My heart aches to think of it.

Or Little Lina?

Her health has deteriorated so much in the last months that they fear for her life.

What will her fate be?

Sweet Lilly?

I just love this girl.   Will she be removed too?

Who will disappear?

Dear readers,

Are any of you feeling the same thing?  I would love to hear your thoughts!

Thank you!
