April Update

Unfortunately in Haiti there has been lots of rioting and unsettlement. Many are starving and the food prices have gone up 50% in the last year. Some have died from the rioting. The government offices were closed for a while, but I think they are up and running again. Which meant no paperwork being done. I think the rioting has settled down, but the situation in Haiti is grave, and there isn't much hope there. Everyone who works for Chances for Children and the children at the Creche are safe, a huge blessing. So because of all this and the law concerning having biological children it seems we will have to wait a while longer to get our girl home. We are now looking into fall. I just have to know God is in control and she will be here in His timing. Once again all I can really do is pray.

Amidst all this, there are children going home. Just last Friday a child made it home, God is good!

We have some great news about our Emmi. She has moved into the toddler room, a prayer request we had after visiting in January. She is also taking steps and starting to walk, praise God! I wish I could be there to see it. JJ and I are hoping to be able to go and see her this summer, maybe late June. I can't wait.

On the homefront-So when is it going to warm up? I can't believe we had snow again yesturday. We are still doing the baseball/teenage thing. I do love to watch my boys play baseball, I just really prefer it in the sun. Sierra and I are dancing away. She is taking 3 classes at Dancing for Joy and I am taking one. I have missed a few and look like quite the dork in class. I really need to practice or you can come watch the funny show in June. We love dance, it is so fun and a great way to express yourself, whether you are good or bad. You don't even have to sign up for a class to dance, your livingroom works good. Billy's job is in limbo and we have some decisions to make and would love all your prayers for God direction.
