Back on the train~

The adoption train that is :) Homestudy meeting done, dr appt (ugh!)  done. Lab work still needed, hiv test, tb chest xray and drug test. They should give ya drugs with the dossier packets ;) 
Letters are getting picked up tonite. Dossier is being started...
WHAT WAS I THINKING?? am i crazy?
Ok..dont answer that.

~All of it is worth it. I know that. Been thru it 2x's so this SHOULD be a breeze.
This is a mission. A RESCUE MISSION. TRULY. We are saving a childs life.
deep breaths...time MUST be on our side.

~I was reading thru our dossier info last night and it stated there IS a risk that a child who is 4 (Taya is 4 1/2) could be transferred to an INSTITUTION mid adoption ! Oh my word. Her little heart would break! Her life now isnt sweet and comfy by any means, but to be moved from the only "home" she has ever known to a cold , dark internat with busy, uncaring strangers, with scary noises and smells, in a cold empty crib alone. What would that do to a child?? our child.
~We have been asked if there is anything you can do to help. Humbling. This time around we will need to do some fundraising. This wasnt planned (well GOD knew :) and the funds arent all there. I have put a chipin, on the side. IF you feel led to help we are grateful and humbled. I have linked the chipin to Reeces Rainbow so you will be able to deduct your donation from your taxes. Cool right?
If you prefer to send a check, just email me :) this is so wierd...asking for help ...

~The kids are excited about their new sister ! Makes this mama so happy :)
Boo isnt sure TAYA  should touch her toys yet, but she is THINKING about sharing LOL.

Our girl :) she needs some serious hugs and kisses and B.O.W.S ! and some sweet Florida sunshine on her face.
~ANNE MARIE is in Taya's orphanage too. She is 4 1/2 also and NOT valued or cared for as well as Taya. It breaks my heart. My hubby thinks bringing home 2 kiddos at once ( I asked !) is too much. He may be right. But oh this baby needs a mama!!! Can you help me find one for her ???

look at her little bow lips??? Oh they need to be kissed !!

~Happy Wednesday to everyone  :)

She is a beautiful little girl...

I'm glad you are trying to find a family for her, even if it can't be yours :)

But you never know ;)

Maybe you can get us new pics of Anne Marie when you visit Taya, so we can get her family? :) Congrats on a beautiful daughter!
