Honestly, today has been a rough day for me. After typing up two key documents that need to get over to Ukraine ASAP, notarizing them, and then authenticating the notary's signature yesterday, I had plans of going up to Fresno to have them apostilled. I was driving up to Caleb's orthodontist visit anyways, so I wanted to save gas and time and do it all in the same trip. Well, the documents are missing--- *poof* into thin air, and I was almost late to his appointment from searching the whole house. Nearly in tears as I drove on the freeway--- all the kids with me because today is a holiday, I felt really defeated. Silly I know, but all of my work that I had done yesterday felt like it was done for nothing--- and now it looks like I will have to redo everything. Thank God--- I quickly got over it--- really I did, and I explained the whole adoption process to Rachel and Annalyn on the drive.
My Mom watched most of the kids while I took Caleb to his appointment--- a good thing since they were absolutely rambunctious today. Totally embarrassed by their "Jumping off the walls" behavior, I cut our visit short. Thankful to just get home, I tried looking for the documents some more--- while the kids ate lunch.
I have accepted that they are gone--- and I have resolved not to worry about them until Tuesday. But God, I am going to need your help keeping my mind off of them. I want to think of You every time I think of the documents---- but I am weak..........
As I close, I had to mention that I happened to check on our Reece's Rainbow sponsorship page. People have contributed over $200 since I last checked! Thank you, thank you, thank you. What a wonderful blessing!
It is a warm and encouaging feeling to see all of you partnering to bring Alexsey home!
