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.

MARIA REALLY NEEDS HER LITTLE SISTER TO COME HOME....... she'll have someone else to play princess dress up with..........

Poor Dawson!
Just a couple of updates:
*I'm still resisting my chocolate cravings. In fact, I have some days I don't think about it much.
But there are other days.................... I don't know how many bags of Hershey Candy Coated Eggs Mark has put away......(and by put away, I don't mean placed somewhere for safe keeping). He loves those things! I have to admit, I do too. I knew the Easter candy season would be tough but so far so good!
*There is starting to be movement for some cases in the final stages of the adoption process. That's good news for all of us. Even though nothing will happen for us until after our court date in June, it's good to know some cases are starting to be processed again.
I have made plans to go to Guatemala next month. I have a woman who is going to make an appointment for me to meet with our judge. I just want her to know, we're not giving up. I want her to see my face and associate it with one of the many files she has stacked on her desk. I'm also planning on going to PGN to remind our investigator, June is right around the corner, and he needs to get that investigation finished. Maybe I'll find out it's finished when I get there..............probably not, but maybe.
That's all for now.
Please continue to remember the kids in Guatemala, and their waiting
families, in your prayers.

Still thinking and praying for your family and Nola. We need to get that sweet little pumpkin home. Your strength is amazing, and that is what will get your daughter home. I'm with Gretch on this one, I believe this is the year to bring Nola home.

Praying that your daughter will come home very soon. And praying that your coming trip will be productive and you will have good news to share.
By the way, I loved your castle cake. WOW! How did you get the icing so smooth? Do you have a great icing recipe you can share?
