Practicing Patience!

Unfortunately I still do not have any updates to share with all of you. We still haven't had any movement in the adoption. We did get an email earlier this week and were told that the paperwork on the two sets of twins is still coming together. We continue to wait patiently for this information. We were told that it usually takes about two weeks...and it has been just over four since our first getting information on the twins. It is tough at times, but overall we have been able to be patient through the process.

This week we have been getting all of the documentation together in order to get the kids' passports processed. We have taken their photos already and will be filling out the paperwork. I look forward to the day that we will be on our adventure to Haiti together. It will be amazing to have our whole family all together in one place!

The kids are excited about traveling together. I think that their biggest concern is eating rice and beans for the length of their stay. I kindly reminded them that it is way better than the worms and crickets that people eat in some cultures! I think they agreed that rice and beans would be preferred!

Craig is at an adoption support group tonight learning about a family that adopted three children from Haiti to add to their two biological children. We have heard them speak once before when we were in our adoption education process with LSS. It will be nice hearing more about the adjustment process and the blending of biological and adoptive children into one family. We have much to learn, and I am sure the process will be amazing.

We will be sure to update this blog as soon as we get more information. We hope to hear something soon, and I am sure that when we do we will be bursting with energy to share the news with all of you!

Blessing to all of you!
