Everyone Think Positive Please

Hey, there. I don't need to go into the details, but we are at a kind of nerve-wracking crossroads in trying to cobble together the money for this adoption, so please think good thoughts, pray for us, and/or send us good energy that this deal we're negotiating will work out OK. I'm kind of a nervous wreck about it but hoping everything will work out. We do have a Plan B, but it's much less appealing than our current Plan A.

I continue to think positively about it all, despite the worries that are living in the back of my brain. I keep trying to feed them and keep them occupied (too bad there's no DVD player in my brain), but they insist on nagging at me throughout the day!

Yesterday I went to the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration to get my driving record. It was pretty easy, very short wait time (surprisingly), and $12 later, I had a printout of my driving record (zero points and nothing to report--yeah, baby!). It was a very savvy, high-tech dot-matrix printout complete with the perforated dots on either side. Certainly worth the $12 (NOT!).

I made them redo the ink seal saying that it was certified, because I was paranoid the agency would tell us it was unreadable (it was really light, so I had them stamp it on there really good and dark).

So that's the latest folks. Cross your fingers, toes, and whatever other body parts will cross. And hang on for the ride. It's already proving to be quite interesting!

Kathleen & Jeff:
I have been reading your blog. Thanks for sharing. I will continue to pray for both of you and the adoption process. One day I may hear your song on the radio or read your story in a book. One thing I know for sure is one day I will meet your child. All things are in God's time and His plan. May He be your strength and hope. May you feel His love embrace you.
God's blessings today and always,

Hi Kathleen & Jeff - I'm excited to be able to keep up with your paperchase & progress through the blog. I wish you both nothing but the best luck with everything and always sending positive wishes. I understand the concern about the money - China just raised their orphanage fees by $2,000 but all going for the babies so no complaints here just need to do some more belt tightening and saving. I'll keep reading as long as you keep writing. Love, Mo

This is so exciting!
Don't worry about the money!! You can't take it with you when you die, right??? The money will always come from somewhere! God will provide!!
You are always in our prayers!!
