Could this be it??

We will have two different expectant moms viewing our profile this week!!  So exciting!  We are trying hard to go along with the ups and downs of “possibly”… then back to square one again.  Both of these moms are due in March, so we could be parents in a couple months!!  Wouldn’t that just be awesome!

On other news, Tim’s mom found a crib and changing table on Craigs list that was beautiful… but it was sold by the time we saw it… only 3 hours after it was listed!  We did get some great “jungle” themed items from a friend (Thanks Amanda!)  She had a jungle themed room for her daughter and is in the process of redoing her room.  I will have to post some pictures of the things soon.  I can’t wait to get the whole room set.

My heart has been torn in a different direction this past week.  Normally I’m constantly thinking about our domestic adoption and what else I can learn.  This past week it has been just hurting for the children of Haiti.  I saw a picture on someones blog earlier in the week – it was of babies sleeping on tiny blankets that were laying on cement rubble.  I can’t get that picture out of my head.  How can we let innocent children live like that?  How can I help?  I’ve checked in with our case worker about adopting from Haiti.  As of right now, they don’t know what their Haiti program will look like.  They had 58 kids that were matched with families before the earthquake, but hadn’t made it the USA yet… they have been united with their adoptive families now.   That is exciting!  Now, they have to wait to see what they can do… they can’t just take children out of Haiti without first getting visas and verifying that their parents were killed in the earthquake.  So, Tim and I will continue on with our domestic adoption plans… but we both really want to go to Haiti to help.  We will hopefully be able to do that with a team from our church, Daybreak.

Anyways, that is all for tonight… sorry no picture or creative thing tonight.  Check back to hear any news that we will hear!

    Tim and Vanessa, I just need to tell you that since this earthquake I have been praying for all these small babies laying on the streets, and I must say that my heart was calling out your names, saying….” you need to go there and takes these kids back home with you!!!!” I know this is only God’s will but all I could think about was how lucky they would be to have parents like you!!!!
    I’ll be praying for you and the mothers that are checking out your profile!! 🙂
    Love ya, Patti
