I am better now.

Though I am still horribly frustrated!  I think that there was so much going on that week, and then hearing that news it just about made me lose it.  Plus I was angry at our agency.  I had a scheduled conference call and I sat on the phone for 20 minutes waiting for them to call in.  Finally I had to hang up, since I only have a cell phone, call the agency, ask where they were, call back into the conference call, and then they didn't even apologize for forgetting about my call. 

We are staying with our decision to stay with a girl, though if Randy changes his mind I will be on the phone with our agency at the drop of a hat! 

In more Positive news, a girl referral went out this week, plus another one, but it didn't state if it was a boy or girl, I am going to lean towards a boy though.  Lots of court dates also.  The main region that our agency works with stated that they will not be giving out any more referrals or court dates until after the Russian holiday which runs from January 1-10.  All government agencies close during that time as that is their Christmas time. 

Peanut Brittle sales have been AMAZING, we have sold over 600 bags of peanut brittle, and we got more orders to deliver!  This has been an amazing fundraiser.  Can't wait until it is done to give the final tallies!  God is providing, since we got turned down for Grant #2.  Don't know if I am going to try for Grant #3, we will see.

Paka till probably after Christmas,


  1. Great to hear sales are going great and there is movement in your region! Hopefully you hear more good news after Orthodox Christmas.

    I got the news my agency isn't accepting new applications and another family said it was because they are not positive about the future forecast of adoptions and think they will be increasingly lengthy. Mind you, Russia is the only program for this agency and they were one of the firsts in Russia and received commendations for their work. What that means for me and others with 18-24mo predicted for referrals... TBD. My reconsideration of plans has taken a new significance as I wait to hear from them.

  2. Sorry to hear how slow things are. It still blows my mind about how many "less" girl referrals there are. Sigh... Hang in there. Thinking of you!
