My wonderful Landon, and "The WAIT"

Well, first of all, we just got back from a great weekend!  My son-in-law had a job interview in Indiana, and we decided to meet them all there for a weekend visit!  My friend has parents who just happened to have a lake house 10 minutes from the interview site, so off we went.  I have not seen that much SNOW in many years, but it was beautiful!  Spending the weekend with my grandson, Landon, daughter, Brogan and her hubs, Zachary was a wonderful time!~   Landon is so smart, and so fun!  Below are some photos of him!

And in other news.  ADOPTION.  Well, our home study was submitted to IL a week ago today.  And now we wait.  It is SO hard.  My boys are in a terrible orphanage.  They need to come home.  Their bedroom is done, our home is big enough, we have enough love, and we even have most of the money to cover the adoption expenses!  But, we wait to see if Mary D, the woman with the power, will approve us for this adoption.  It doesn't matter if our caseworker and agency are more than happy to approve us.  She has to.  It doesn't matter if we have glowing references, plenty of support, and well-adjusted, happy children.  She still makes the final decision.  And so we wait.  And we don't even know how long.  Our caseworker says 3-4 weeks.  Some people are waiting 2-3 months.  She held up one adoption for 10 months!   We are prepared to fight.  We are not just going to go away, if we are told NO.  So, she needs to be ready for us!  LOL

Other adoption news:   Well, I received the information on a  beautiful, but very ill, little gal, named Kacey.  She is 13, and has Beta Thal, like Meng, and is also aging out of the adoption program in October, which is basically a death sentence for her.  I began advocating for her, and immediately our Pastor asked for more information!!!  To make a long story short, they have locked her file, are racing through thee home study process, and are completely excited about being her PARENTS!  WOOHOO!  Helping them through some of the paperwork and red tape has helped take my mind off of  my boys.  And another church family has stepped forward to adopt as well!  God is moving on our church, and His people!  IT is awesome to watch!

Well, I will update as soon as we hear from the state.  Hopefully, prayerfully, with good news!

Enjoy these pictures of Landon!  Sweetest grandson ever!  LOL
