Monthy Update - March

I know I am late, but we got a good update on Emmi this month. She is weighing in at 25 lbs, not a skinny one anymore, a definite answer to prayer. She is becoming more active with the other children. They say she is very smilie and playful now. She can walk with the walker independently, which is awesome. One step closer to walking on her own. She did have the flu last month (but who didn't?) and is better now.

Unfortunately our paperwork has not moved at all. We have been in IBESR for 6 months now. There is an old law stating that if you have biological children you can't adopt from Haiti and they are thinking/trying to bring it back, so that may be the hold up? I am ready to move on to the next step, but I need to trust that God is in control and continue to pray. There has been some good news of children going home, so that is encouraging. Also I think JJ and I will be traveling to see our Emmi in early summer, I am excited to bring him to see Haiti and her.I am planning on posting at least once a month to keep everyone updated.

On the homefront in Bellingham, we are doing the baseball/teenage thing. As of Monday all my children at home with be double-digits, can you believe it? I am old, but I feel young. I can't believe we have snow now. Baseball is not supposed to be watched or played in the snow. Something is wrong. I can't wait for the sun. I'm tired of 5 layers and still being cold. I am ready for short sleeves and capri's. We are all busy with school, practices, games and dance. Oh by the way I am an Auntie times 3 now, with a nephew and 2 nieces. Life is good, God is good. Keep smiling!
