Not Forever...

Just for now.

Thank you, my dear friends, for your kind words of support. I wanted to assure you all that I haven't completely jumped ship. This adoption is just taking more adjustment time than I had scheduled (Okay, God, I can hear You laughing...).

This particular baby has been--shall we say--not as easy as our last adopted baby PLUS a multitude of minor health issues. (As someone who is pro-life, I should not be surprised to learn that God's way is not always the easy one. But I hadn't considered just how much physical work goes into putting my money where my mouth is.) When I started adding up the time it now takes to do the "usual" laundry, meals, cleaning, chauffeuring (which Pat is doing most of now, but goes back to work next week!), writing my column, homeschooling, bible study, etc...I just had to cut back a little until we get ourselves on an even keel again. Hopefully, that will be sooner rather than later!

I'll be back! Possibly even tomorrow with the link to this week's column...

The prayers will continue :) I hope her health issues get resolved quickly so you can all enjoy each other!

Do what God calls you to do first and the rest will all fall into place. My blog has been fairly silent these past weeks due to this very fact. My prayers for your family continue and may Baby Girl be totally healed soon.

Blessings,
Anne
