Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted
according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or
slow to do the humble work.

I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)
If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

I've been having a really tough time emotionally, as I battle to get this homestudy approved. If I can get out of this without an ulcer, I've accomplished something.

Normally, between patient's houses, I listen to talk radio. Today, I just didn't have the stomach for it, so I listened to Christian radio. I can't tell you how many times I blubbered today listening to music!! The songs truly spoke to me. I normally do love Christian music, but today I really, really needed it. So much encouragement, so much comfort.

Please keep praying - there may be a way out of this mess, yet.

Praying, God is not surprised. He knows what it will take to get HIS will accomplished. I keep thinking of that song "God will make a way when there seems to be no way..."

Adoption Adventure said...

Oh Missy my gosh I have had so many things going on this summer I haven't checked your blog for awhile I get back on and am shocked to see all that has happened. First off I had no idea you were adopting again but praise God for your willing hearts. Second I don't know all the issues with your HS but if you still need names you can add mine. I have followed your blog for a year and anyone can see what a fantastic family you are. You are right no one can judge how hard it is to deal with some of the issues the kids come with. It makes me so irritated when people who don't know sit in judgement on those of us who choose to try and make a difference even if it at times is rejected.
Missy I will pray for you all that God works this out.
Many hugs to you Rhonda

If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
