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.

Will It Ever Stop?

Unbelievable! That's the only word to describe this weather lately! We had another 7" of rain yesterday and last night! We look like we live on an island right now (always thought it would be neat to live on an island.............but I had a more tropical location in mind.) I figure we will be begging for rain later this summer and wont get a drop.

This is the west edge of our yard. The water was up beyond the trees. What's behind isn't a lake, it's a hay field.........disguised as a lake ;)

There's no news on the adoption front. We received word from our coordinator, who was in Guatemala this week, that our Birth mother interview has not been scheduled. That was a bit discouraging. I was hoping it had happened and our attorney had just not passed along the news yet. There is no estimate as to how much longer we may wait. Right now it seems to be the luck of the draw determining who goes next. The JCICS released a statement that 230 cases were released from PGN yesterday. That's fantastic news! There is no word yet on how many of those were approvals and how many were previos. That news should be coming a bit later. So for now...............again, we wait.

Nola's reaction on hearing we seem to be stuck in PGN.

My sentiments exactly baby!

Momma and Daddy love and miss you!

Please keep the prayers coming!

I agree with Nola! I would like to stick out my tongue at PGN as well!! Praying that your birth mother interview happens soon and that you are OUT of PGN immediately after that!!

I am happy to hear there has been some movement. You have had lots of good news lately. Congratulations Granny:) I loved the picture of Maria in the puddle with the big cute. When do you go on your trip to visit Nola?

We fly out on the 27th. I've already got Nola's things packed
(a little over anxious I think).
It will be a short visit, but Oh I'm looking so forward to it!

I just came across your blog today (linked on Sandy's blog)! Didn't know you had one. Nola sure is a cutie as is big sister Maria. I will say a prayer that your birthmother interview takes place soon so that you can bring that precious little girl home.

Oh that the tongue. We are right there with you and all the rain. If not snow, rain, praise the Lord any ways. Wonderful to see PGN moving again. You know I stand with you in prayer and faith. Blessings, Susie
