Sort of an update

Well, I called the agency this week, and they said that we should be getting our case updates early next week. They said that the lawyer was waiting until then because she hadn't gotten all the cases back into PGN yet and was waiting for that. This makes me feel a little bit better. I like the idea of waiting another week before we are back into PGN a lot more that some random unforeseeable date in the future because of unknown problems with our paperwork, which was what I was getting nervous about. It also looks like PGN is still moving pretty quickly, so hopefully they will keep up the pace to get all of these children home quickly! I am praying hard for all of you who are still in process and going through all of this with us!

I finally got through to PGN today and we still have not been resubmitted. I am really bummed out! It is so frusterating to know that our lawyer has had over six weeks to take care of stuff and prepare our paperwork to be submited, and it still hasn't been done, and her last update was so vague that we don't really know what one of our previos was for or how long it will take to fix. Now I am worried that it is something serious that is going to take a while. I am just so tired and frusterated. I just don't know how much longer I can deal with all of this stuff. I am so dissapointed right now. Sorry this is a bummer post. I needed to vent.

In the mean time...

No new news here, though it is driving me crazy! I am so anxious to hear something. OK, the truth is that I don't want to just hear something. I want to hear that we have been resubmitted into PGN. And the only thing better than that would be to hear that we were resubmited into PGN and miraculously have already been approved and that we are out! I know it is very unlikely, but Candy (Jagger and Kya's mom) did hear on the forums that is has happened this way for some people lately. A girl can wish (and pray really hard:). I am really trying to wait until next week to call PGN, but I might cave and call tomorrow. We'll see. It depends on what level that I am going out of my mind tomorrow. In the mean time we got a picture of Shiloh today. If you look closely you can just see the start of two teeth poking out on the bottom. I had been wondering about that, so it is cool to see.

I started a new nannying job last week watching a two year old and a three year old. They are great kids, but a handful! It just makes me that much more anxious to have Shiloh home! I have been so blessed to have been watching such great kids over this last year or so, but I am so ready to be with my own child instead! I am also trying to get back into the swing of things as far as cooking better. I made a batch of bread today. I haven't made bread since before Christmas and I didn't realize how much I missed it until I ate a warm slice with honey a few minutes ago. Yumm! I grind my own wheat so it's extra healthy. It sounds complicated, but really machines do all the work, I really only put in about five minutes of effort.

Please, dear Lord, Let us get some good news about our case soon! Bless us with a miracle and bring Shiloh home soon! And please watch over our little girl. Thank you so much for blessing us by bringing her in our lives!! Please protect her and keep her happy, healthy and safe! Amen.

Happy New Year!!!

We are registered with CNA!!! I am so relieved! Now we just need to get back into PGN and get this show back on the road! I am so so tired of this whole thing and can't wait to get my baby home and not have to deal with this any more! I think I am so used to being stressed out about it now, that I don't even realize that I am stressed. I think I am going to feel like a different person when she is finally home.

UUhhh! I have been sick off and on for the last two weeks. It has made it very hard to keep up with my blogging because all I want to do is sleep. The only good thing about it is that since my husband is home sick too, we get to curl up on the couch together while we sleep. I am such a baby when I get sick, so today I was thinking, "how do you do this when you have kids?" I guess you just make it work.

In the mean time, here is a little Christmas in Febuary:

Bad news

It has not been a good week, and just when I was starting to feel a little bit better we started getting bad news from Guatemala. The Central Authority is not registering any cases due to various reasons, the result being that things may be delayed until the cases can no longer be grandfathered into the new laws. You can read about it here at the ADA website.

I really don't know what to do. Just when I think that I can truly not handle another problem, another thing comes up. I am just feeling so discouraged, frustrated and tired! We are still not back in PGN, and apparently we won't be until we can be registered with the CA, which isn't registering anyone. Please, please be praying for us, Shiloh and all the other families going through this!!! Please pray that something will happen to make these cases move forward quickly and easily and that God will have favor on all of us and bring our children home!
