Still here, still hoping

Hi, all! I know it has been FOREVER since I have posted. Please forgive me. So much has been going on, physically and emotionally. I have been spending a lot of time with my niece and her new daughter while she was on maternity leave. I know, I know! I cannot believe I have not shared pictures of this little beauty with you. I promise to load them up asap! She really has become the light in my life right now. I have also been fighting a horrible infection all month long and finally went to the Dr. this week to find out I have a bacterial infection and am now on a round of Augmentin. HMMM, many trips to the bathroom! Can anyone relate?!

On the Vietnam front: many of my blog friend families are finally traveling to finalize their adoptions. The US Dept of State reported on their website that no new adoptions will commence until a new bilateral agreement is reached or Vietnam signs on to the Hague Convention. Our agency projects this process to at least be a year. Our agency is also being reconsidered by the Hague committee, so hopefully they will be approved. Our fingerprints will expire in Dec, so we are looking at 900 dollars to keep those current while we decide what we are going to do. I know several families that have chosen to go other routes and some that are having no choice but to wait out this moratorium with Vietnam. I will be posting soon on the other site about our options. You have to have a password to follow. I am also thinking of changing my password, as i feel I may have been too liberal with the first one.

I am really enjoying my Tues. night Bible study. Look for a post coming soon with some things I would like to share with you. It is just so relative to this adoption journey we have been on. It is too good not to share, but it will take me a while to compose on that.

I am going to be making hair bows, tutus, and the like to supplement our income. I may try to set up a website, but will at least be posting my designs here. If you have little girls and like hair bows and ponies, I am working on some designs for Christmas. I promise the prices will be reasonable. I hope to have some pics posted early next week as this is going to be my weekend project.
