Mixed Emotions, again!

Wow, sometimes life is such a roller coaster. My good friend, Sue, is going through a really tough time as her mom had a massive heart attack and they are facing tough decisions. I so want to be there for her. Jake had a good day at school and golf. He will play Monday to see if he can move up to Varsity. Noelle apparently had a bad day after three "fabulous" days. She was very emotional and not able to really articulate why. And in the mail I find a letter from Homeland Security. I was not supposed to send a personal check but a cashier's check. Up and down, up and down. I need to head back up to the hospital but this is so therapeutic. God's plan is perfect: for Jake, Noelle, Maxine and our new baby. Who I cannot wait to hold!!

Loved checking out your new blog! We aren't too far ahead of you in the process, although it feels like we've been in forever!! Praying for you and all you're going through!

Love,

I'm praying, too. Life can be such a rollercoaster anyway... and then add all the ups and downs inherent in the adoption process and you ARE in for a ride. The way I look at it is: the way downs only make the way ups that much bigger and more exhilarating!

(and I'm sorry about the personal check thing... I was "this close" to sending a personal check to CIS, too, but got this nagging feeling to get a cashier's check. At least you can sound the alarm to those behind you!!!)
