Sale and Travel Update and More Perspective

First, some very good news...thanks to some very kind and generous friends (you all know who you are!) our sale has BROKEN the $1,000 mark! Thank you all so much!!! I emailed our agency to tell them our results and hope to hear if they know how the money will be spent. I'll let you know if I hear anything.

Second, some not so good news...the very sweet woman we were working with to make our travel arrangements suffered a mild heart attack on Friday. The travel office isn't sure when or if she'll be back at work. All this time while we were wondering why no one had returned our emails and we weren't getting any further by making phone calls, her family was probably waiting for news too. Generally speaking we know when we're traveling, we just don't have *official* dates or flight numbers yet. The good news is that we can and will get them. As I remarked to my husband, if worst comes to worse, we could by a last minute ticket the day before and just hop a flight to go. It's just not worth getting all worked up over. Life is too short, and it took a travel agent to remind us.

Wonderful, and not so wonderful, news. I'll be praying for all of it.

Thanks for passing along the reminder. I can always use a little perspective.

B, thanks for the prayers. I agree with you karianne.
In the midst of all this adoption process, I know I've needed a healthy dose of perspective myself!
