Don't Be Shy!

I know you're out there....our counter at the bottom of the page is moving! Don't be afraid to leave comments or questions so I don't feel like I'm talking to myself! Don't be shy! :)

It's back to school for me - a great, but busy, time of the year! The kids come on Monday, so I am busy preparing my classroom and lesson plans so I will be ready when they come. I have 24 kids this year, so it will be a full year!

Hayden is at camp this week and I am really missing him.....he's our sweet tender hearted boy who loves for us all to be home together, so I am sure he is missing us, too. I hope he's having a great time!

That's all for now - nothing new on the adoption front....just "busy" waiting! Please pray for our next steps (I171-H) to go quickly so we can start our "official" wait!

Hi Kathy - It's Sherry Semlow from Bloomington. I'm keeping up on your blog. :) I am definitely praying for your 171H. Fortunately Illinois processes these "relatively" quickly compared to other states. You are soooo close! Once you get settled into school, we'll have to plan a get together. Blessings! - Sherry

I hope your "official" wait will start soon. Those USCIS offices like to take there time, while we wait impatiently. One of ours took 6 weeks and the other took about 7 weeks. Hope yours comes quickly.

I will have boy adoption onseies!

Hi Nathan and Kathy. This is the first time I have visited your blog and I just found out this week that you were adopting! Bless you. I will keep your journey in my prayers. There is one lucky child waiting for his/her new life with you.
