One Month Down

First month on the wait list officially over!

A HUGE thank you to all who helped me get through the "funk". Honestly, all the comments and messages made a real difference for me and helped put things into perspective. THANK YOU SO MUCH, INTERNET COMMUNITY!!!

I started my new job last week! I am working part time at Glenpool Elementary this school year- my official title is "Curriculum Coach." Don't I sound important? ha ha. I know I am really going to enjoy it. Not only is it a blessing from God for our adoption fund, it is also a blessing from God for ME to keep my mind of the waiting and to feel like I am helping kids and teachers- exactly what I love to do!

Jack and Ben start 3rd grade and Kindergarten next week! First day of school pix coming soon!!!

I wonder about our "new" kids... where they are, what they are doing right now... I wonder if they are with their mommy. I hope so. I hope she is lavishing them with her love. I don't know what the circumstances will be that will bring these kids into our lives, but I know that the story will be rooted in this mommy's sadness. I pray for her and hope she is soaking up her kids' smiles and hugs and kisses and staring deep into their eyes and letting them know she loves them so much.

Wow - didn't know you were going back to work - good for you. What DO you do as a Curriculum Coach? I'm guessing you're not in the classroom full-time. (I am a sharp one... can't get much past me)

Glad you are feeling better and the future is looking bright.

My prayers are with you and your family both near and far.

Selam! G'day! Hello!
