In family news, two weeks ago we moved my mother-in-law out of our house and into an assisted living apartment. PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!!!!! (oops, did I seem a little too happy about that?)....................................(that's because I am!) I love my mother-in-law, but she is the most negative minded person I think I've ever been around in my life. You know, one of those people who always has something hurting, is constantly moaning about something or just generally negative. After a while, that begins to grate on a persons nerves. She lived with us for about two years and even though I felt kind of guilty when we left her in her new apartment, I am so glad to have my house (my home) back!
In adoption news, there's not much. Our judge is back in her office and we think she has received the report she asked for from the PGN. Our lawyer says he expects the judge to rule on our case "within the next several weeks". Knowing that time doesn't mean a lot to some people in Central American Countries, I'm sure not going to hold my breath for "the next several weeks" but at least we have something to hope and pray for. Tomorrow will be four months since Nola was taken from her foster family and we have had absolutely no word on her well being. Not knowing has been the hardest part of this whole situation. Please continue to pray that someone is loving and caring for Nola in the hogar. I'm praying the judge rules in our favor soon and allows Nola to go back to her foster family until the day she gets to come home to us.
Even though I'm dealing with some very slow dial-up, when we get some good news, believe me, I'll find the time to share!

What a bunch of candy!!!
There are more pictures of Christmas morning than anyone
wants to look at but here are a few.
The scene before the unwrapping began.
and me to get the video camera on.
Ok, I'm quitting for now. I've got you all pretty well caught up. Here's wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!
We're praying the new year brings good news for all of the children in Guatemala waiting to be united with their forever families! Please continue to pray with us.
