Updates

We finally have a small update. We have recieved Emery's birth certificate and more detailed information regarding her birth mother. No information on the birth father but apparently Emery's birth mother does not know who he is. Kind of interesting I wonder how we will talk about this with Emery. I am sure we will recieve help along the way. The Thai Coordinator of our adoption agency believes that the "To Whom it May Concern" letter should be here sometime this week. The paperwork that we recieved is usually an indicator that the to whom letter is on its way. I don't know if I find it really weird that we still haven't recieved our letter. Our coordinator assures me that everything is okay and that with this program things can go really slow. She did say that at the earliest we might be able to head over to Thailand late July early August. Please pray that this happens we are so ready.

A little update on my family, my papa ended up passing away. It has been the hardest thing my family has had to go through. My nana is not doing well. She has a lot of responsiblities things that were left undone because nobody thought he was going to die. The day before he went into the hospital he was riding around in his orchard on his four wheeler planting apple trees. My nana is a strong Christian women but this has been a real test of her faith. I don't know what to say our do for her. She is broken. Please pray for my nana, pray that things start to settle down and that she is able to get through the grieving process as best as she can.

So sorry to hear about your loss and especially for your nana. But, also happy to hear that you're one step closer to your daughter. Hang in there during the long wait. I know it's very hard. Don't give up!

Sorry to hear about families loss and your Nana's distress.

But excited to hear you might be travelling in July/August - we are hoping we will get the call soon and maybe travel then as well.

What a heart break. I know it will be awful to go through death, especially losing your best friend and companion. I'm praying for all of you.
AND FOR THAT LETTER!!!
