The greatest experience, the one which shakes a soul with hopes and fears, the results of which are never ending, and incidentally, the one which pays the biggest dividends, is to be found in the adoption of children.

Preparing For Travel

Well it looks as though we will be able to meet with our lawyer while we are in Guatemala. Our agency is ironing out the details, but it looks like Friday will be the day. We're hoping to find out what has been done up to this point to locate Nola's birth mother and what more will be done. Please pray that I won't be a blubbering mess. I don't think that would make a very good impression, but I have been quite the faucet face the last few days.

On a lighter note, our son Kyle has added to his "body art". He got his first tattoo when he was old enough to get it without our consent and recently added a new one. He has honored his Guatemalan born sister and sister to be on his right shoulder.

I'll keep you all posted on all of happenings in Guatemala.

Friday will mark our 6 month anniversary in PGN....WOW!

Today's uplifting scripture from "Hugs from Heaven".....

Don't get discouraged. I'm close to the brokenhearted,

and I specialize in rescuing you when you're crushed in spirit.

Your weakness is the perfect opportunity for my power to shine.

Meanwhile, I give you my all-sufficient grace.

from Psalm 34:18; 2 Corinthians 12:9

Side note, after our recent news, I have lifted my self imposed ban from the Internet (obviously). I'm not on much, and I'm staying away from the forums but I just don't feel comfortable distancing myself from the one connection I have with Guatemala right now. Go ahead and say it Mark.............I'm weak!
