A quiet evening at home...just reading a book and relaxing. Much needed for us. We've had much illness (Strep throat, Influenza, vomiting) in our home. The Dr. and pharmacy have received much business from our family these past few weeks. Last weekend April hosted a jewelry fundraiser in her home. We were very blessed with the love and support we received from our friends and family there in Ringwood. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We love each and every one.
Still needing a few hundred dollars in order to send our home study application in. Gathering and making copies of all documents needed for the worker who is over our case. Anxiety is high in our home. Have been putting together jewelry to fill orders from this past weekend. Fingers, elbows, forearms, and neck angry at me because of the time and precise care I'm putting in to complete each necklace and ear ring set. But God is my comforter, healer, and the great physician. I know He will carry us through this part of our journey. This is such a great experience and time of awakening for me (Michelle). I am truly enjoy putting together the jewelry and then seeing my friends actually wear the sets they have purchased. It's such a great feeling to know I made the jewelry everyone is wearing. I am looking at possibly making some more different new styles of jewelry. But right now our main focus is completing the home study. Pray for provision of the rest of the money needed to pay the $1,750 home study application fee.
There is a feeling that only those who have adopted before can understand...how it is that you can love someone you haven't even met...this child may not even be born or conceved yet. Our hearts are aching and yearning to hold our child that God is calling us to raise and love as our own. We love you, JayCee!!! Soon we will hold you in our arms.
