On the right side of this blog is my Twitter timeline. Follow me on Twitter, username is miss_jilly_bean, or become my friend on facebook - or just read the timeline on this blog to keep up with me. I can spend 2 seconds updating Twitter more than I can find time to sit down at my computer, log in to blogger, type out a big message with pictures, etc, etc, etc.
Hopefully this weekend, there may be time to update the blog and get all of you who still might be interested a picture or two from our trip to Las Vegas. It was fabulous!!
On the adoption front, we have some inquiries in on a few kids from Arkansas and some other states. All I can say at this point is, this is a frustrating process dealing with the state! There is not one single person that seems to be an advocate for US. If we left it up to someone contacting us about available kids that might fit in our family, we would wait for years and maybe still never hear anything. It's really maddening sometimes to think that there are families like us that are ready and willing to take these kids who need families and yet no one is helping us! We are doing all the leg work. There's not one soul that has said, "Hey, it looks like we have a possible match for you" or "what about these kids, would you be interested?" Nothing. But we're not quitting. We're calling. We're emailing. We KNOW there are kids out there and we have a place for them and we WANT them! I know it's all just a matter of God's timing. His timing is perfect. His plan is perfect. There is a child or children out there that God has designed to be a part of our family. I'm constantly reminding myself that God is in total control, even when I think these people working for the state are all crazy.
