Sunny Days

So I am sitting in the study waiting for Dae to rise! Yes's noon already! Oh well, he has been sick and can't quite shake it so I am letting him rest! However, the sunshine outside is really beckoning me to go out in it! I don't know about the rest of you but I am so ready for warmer weather! I am ready for green leaves, green grass, flowers, hummingbirds and all other sort of great things!

We were thinking of catching a movie today but I am thinking that the park might be nicer! We have been trying to get there for several weeks but there is always something else in the way. I have some remnants of a loaf of bread that the ducks would really enjoy!

The pups are loving the sun also! Roxie laid on the back deck this morning taking it all in as if she were a sun sponge! I am thinking they would probably really appreciate a walk around the block since the weather is so nice! So it seems like I should get off of here and get busy! Happy sunny day everybody!

heavy heart

I write with a heavy heart without really knowing what to write. My friend H was scheduled to bring home her son through domestic adoption today and has discovered that the birthmother has not signed her termination papers as planned yesterday. I don't take sides...H knew it wasn't 100% certain...all of us adopting know how the process works and all the potential regrets. I also fully believe in the rights of birthmoms. I can't fathom what they go through. It is actually unconceivable to me. I have never been able to wrap my mind around that. I just feel the weight of the situation on both sides.

As I continue to wait for the day I receive that call, I still can't envision what the experience will be like for us. We have been waiting 17 months and 8 days for a potential "match." We started the process well over a year before that approal date. It is a journey you can't wrap your mind around if you have not been in the same shoes. It is hard on you as a person, your marriage and your friends and family who hope and pray and love you all the way through!

Prayers for H today, please!

Sickness and Healing

So David has been sick for going on 8 days...actually he has been sick in some capacity for about a month. However, it was getting worse. One thing was this cough that sounded like a lung might be dispensed at any moment! We went to the best doctor in the world today! Seriously, he is great! He prescribed D with over 200.00 dollars in prescriptions so let's hope he gets some much needed releif. Neither one of us has slept much so I hope rest comes soon! I hate it when D gets sick because he really gets sick! Send up a little prayer of healing for him, won't you?! Please! :)
