Progress on her room :)

Alex  from Portrait Art For Pets And Their People came to paint some more yesterday I love how things are coming together! Yay!!!
Today was a good day of collecting donations for the Rock The Walk for Mitochondrial Disease. I was able to get $100 my first day! A special Thank You to Dr. G, Karen C and an anonymous donor!!! I was really excited to see that! Just $400 more to hit my goal!
Here are some pics of the dresser that I painted. I love it!!!!

Waiting, Waiting and Waiting some more.


“Life is all about timing... the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable... attainable. Have the patience, wait it out It's all about timing.”

So, I have had a rough week. I am not sure why, but I am feeling really down. I am a person that makes things happen. Right now everything is out of my control completely. Which in reality that is probably the way my life is going to go from now on. It has been about 3 weeks since my paperwork went out to Greenbsorro for approval. I ordered my 20 photo profiles that need to be shipped up there as well. They get here Tuesday. Other than that nothing is going on...Alex took a little break from painting. She should start up again this week. That will keep my mind off things as well.

We had new neighbors move in a couple weeks ago and they are wonderful, they have 3 kids, a son who is 12, and 2 daughters that are 10 & 8. They are really some fabulous kids. I am glad they have moved in next door, so when we get our daughter there are really nice kids for her to be friends with.  I enjoy spending time with them as well.

I am reading a lot of books on adoption and raising adopted children. Today I was actually reading about the parallels pregnancy and adoption. How the process of adoption is the equivalent of labor. The author actually refers to it as the labor pains of adoption. It is necessary to have these pains to receive the blessing of the child. I was needing to read that.

Well, I am going to wrap this up and with it I will wrap up this little funk that I am in. I think I need to get into a project or something. Maybe I will paint her dresser or something. If I feel like i doing something that gets me closer to her being here than I will feel better.

more flowers leaves and volunteering

So Alex was here again today :)
We now have more flowers and some leaves...This thing is really coming along and I am so happyyyyyyy!!!

I have really enjoyed working with CHS and have been putting alot of thought into how I can help, so I am submitting an application to become a volunteer for them. Not sure where they will need help, but I am sure I can do something :) I received all my paperwork today and will be mailing it off tomorrow :)
Nothing else new, just waiting.... patiently waiting...ok not so patiently, but I am waiting none the less!
