Trees and cars do not mix

 With every adoption we/I seem to have the worse luck. :'O(

After a long day at the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic I decided to spend the remainder of the day cleaning out my car.  After four long hours  I had it sparkling and walked away proud of how my car looked.  Normally I usually work cleaning inside but today the kids and I decided to spend sometime outside.

Later that evening and a very loud cracking sound one of our tree's biggest branches decided to break loose.

Today we find out our car is a total lost.  Hard to understand just why things like this has got to happen. Today I spend most of the day sweeping up glass and then waiting to hear back from our insurance company.  My life is like a dance.  Two steps forward and another three steps back... Why when one saves and saves bad things happen?  Very thankful the children were not still outside cleaning the car, it could have been much worse.  The car can be replaced, it is only a material item but not a child.  So back to square one in saving a little more towards our adoption.  Gary needing his car to get to work and my car for medical appointments for the children.  I ask myself over and over why didn't I move the car?   And why now?  Especially when we are saving hard towards our adoption.  This is life, our life. Many ups and many downs...  Well tomorrow we will wake up and start a new day.  Tonight our car still sits and waits to be towed away.  Sad knowing that we worked so hard to keep it in great shape and then seeing it destroyed so easily by an old 100 year old tree.

We have date and a new little girl

Letting everyone know we have a date to travel in Mid~January.

FBI updated :O))

Today we drove 30 miles to our Local Sheriff station to be finger printed once again.  Praying this will be the last and final time our fingers have to be printed.  Each time you  think it might get easier but my fingers just can not seem to relax.  So far just this adoption we have been ink printed three times and had bio~metric once for USCIS.  With each set of fingerprints means additional costs to our adoption.  The updates alone have added up quickly and we will still have to notarize and apostle each document.  With 60 or so documents it is adding up quickly at $20 a piece for notary and $20 for apostles.  SO a big hunk of our savings we have set back for our trip.  Once our dossier is submitted we will be working towards raising the funds we need to travel with.  And with two new little ones this means two of everything from Airlines, Child's Visas, Children Medicals, Immigration fees and the list goes on and on.  Every dollar so far has came from our savings.  Not one penn…
