This week has been great! I am feeling a lot more at ease with the waiting. We have been flooded with pictures and news about the wolf cub. It has be awesome. Next week the courts are officially closed for the holidays. They are scheduled to re-open January 17th. At this time there should be multiple judges taking adoption cases and we should have a better idea of our travel plans. The great thing about those dates is that we have friends coming to town so I will hopefully be very busy/distracted and not freaking out.
My new friend Tonya,who is adopting a little girl from the same baby home our son is in expressed a need that I would like to share with you.
She informed me that the baby home is in need of disposable diapers. They have tried to use clothe diapers but without hot water to wash them, they are having to jump through hoops to get them laundered and it’s just not practical. Through generous donations from friends and family Tonya was able to donate several months worth of diapers to the baby home and give all the glory to God. She asked this as a service and people responded. I have emailed my pastor and will hopefully be making an announcement for people to give if they feel led. So here it is, $10 will buy a pack of diapers for the baby home and if you are willing to give please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mr. and I are working on some additional gifts we can personally give to the home and the aunties providing a safe and loving home for our little guy.
I am also working on some Christmas decorations for the house which I am very excited to share with you once they are done! We are going to get a tree this weekend and I can’t wait! Happy Week Before Christmas everyone!
