A Good Tired!

Things have been SO busy around here lately and my mind has been so full that lastnight I finally think it rebooted while I slept. B/c I had the weirdest dreams and I had a lot of dreams all related somehow to everything happening in real life. I am tired, but like my favorite Christian band the Akins say..it is a good tired. Let me update y'all. My sister went to her obgyn and found out she needed a LAP to see if she had endo or a fibroid in her uterus. Long story short...they had to act fast b/c first she does have pain and second she is changing jobs soon so her insurance would change. So she had surgery on Friday and I went to be there with her. She may be my big sister, but I wanted to help in anyway I could. Especially since I had a LAP before I wanted to calm her fears. Thank God that she only had some endo and a small fibroid. Oh yeah I forgot to tell you why I am saying Thank God to that...if it was a big fibroid the doctor was going to do a partial hysterectomy. So the doctor just had to zap it all and he was done. Also, my sister has two precious little girls so My parents and I took them with us so my sis could get some rest. Needless to say I didn't get much rest, but it was worth it all.

Basically, my days went like this....Friday: all day at hospital with sis, take neecy poos home to grandparents and spend the night with them in a full size bed..they are some kickers. Saturday: wake up with neecy poos and play all day...nap some with one neecy poo, then play some more...then bath time..then I went home. I had forgotten that Todd was having some guy friends over to watch the fight...so I just wanted to get home...get a shower and hit the bed. No such luck.....

Remember an earlier post about adoption and the Philippines. Well, things they are a changing. Our friend that has a niece in the Philippines is ready to do adoption. I know this all sounds shady, but this is a different niece than before. She has a nine month old girl already and is 7 months pg. Her husband left them and she is very young and poor. She wants her baby to have a good future and is willing to give her baby up to give it to him or her. Yeah we don't even know the sex b/c they can't get ultrasounds there. Don't be alarmed...Todd and I are talking to a lawyer on tuesday and we will make sure this is legit and we are not falling for anything. So far my heart tells me things are good, but my head is being more cautious. Lastnight I was able to video chat with her. I got to see her belly and her nine month old...we were both a bit speechless. But we finally asked questions and she said she thought todd and I were a cute couple. If you have been able to follow along to all of my craziness then thank you!!!

Todd and I feel as if this has fallen into our laps. We have not talked to any agencies and have only really requested info from Bethany Christian. We still have a third embryo frozen....so we are putting this all in GOD'S hands. If it is smooth sailing and legit we will go forward. Then we will know this is GOD's plan for us to have this baby. So as you can see I am a bit overwhelmed. I want to be excited, but cautious. The biggest excitement is seeing God's plan for us unfold. Seeing how He works is amazing. And I know even if this doesn't work out there will be a lesson in it for us. Maybe even if I just get to witness to this woman! I will keep y'all posted on everything!!!!!

I hope any of that made sense :D

Glad to hear you are feeling better. Rest really does help alot. I will definitely be praying for your sister, that she will recover quickly and be able to be back on her feet. (it's gotta be hard with two little girls needing you!) I will also be praying with you about the adoption. I always prayed that if God wanted us to adopt that he would drop the situation in our lap...it seems he may be doing that for you. Just be cautious and pray for alot of wisdom. It would be wonderful if it worked out. Hope you have a great week!
Love ya,
Shauna

Wow!!! You've had a load on your plate lately, huh? That's probably truly what you've needed. Like you said a good tired. I'm so thankful things worked out so well for your sis. I pray that the Lord will allow the adoption to happen smoothly and for the lady providing this blessing for you. We have a missionary friend who is in the Philippines in Baguio. I sure hope to hear good and exciting news for you and that everyone involved is closer to the Lord when it's all done. God bless ya!
