Last weeks happenings!!

Baby Jordon ~ What a cute little man.
Deztany in her beautiful dress!!!

Andrew getting ready to go outside..

Mckenzie the princess!!

Bella our little princess!!

All of the children have had colds or have them still. Poor little Jordon who is only three months old has a cold also. But he also had a barking cough, oh it sounded very bad. So he has been on breathing treatments. We are still giving him some treatments every so often. We pray it gets better very soon. The bigger children are all getting better.We are keeping the children home away from people. The swine flu is very bad here now. We pray none of us gets sick with this.

Oh Mom(Jody) stubbed her toes, not sure if they were broke or dislocated. But Jake our older son had to pull moms toe and put it back in place. Her toes are nice pretty colors now. Jody had some pretty sore toes for a few days. Not herself for sure. Slowed her way down. But she is getting better .

We did sell our camp trailer!!! Yes yes. Then we bought a used suburban, paid cash for it , so no payments on that.
Now this week we are selling our Expedition!! That is so awesome, we will pay off the loan and put the rest in our adoption fund for bringing Seth home. Oh we are waiting for new pictures of Seth. So hopefully in the next few days i will post some ..
We are getting all our funds together for our adoption. It looks like we won't be able to travel until Feb,2010. But that is only 4 months away. 4 months away sounds like a long time, but it goes by so fast. I will have lots of little people to keep us busy.
All the children keep trying on halloween costumes to see what they want to be. We keep a couple totes full of costumes here all the time. They all like to wear the costumes all the time.

Big sister Amber is having a halloween party at her house and making lots of surprises for the kiddos. They will all have a great time. I will have to post pictures from it.

Hello: Tristan !!!

Hello: Tristan,
Your little friends say hello. They all can not wait to see you again. M~ Jordon says hi also.

Jordon & Bella

Jordon is three months old already. He is doing very well. He is a pretty big boy. Jordon has a very beautiful smile and loves to smile at you when you talk to him. We are working on getting his muscles stronger in his neck and legs. He will get it very soon. We are so glad to be blessed with this handsome little guy. It is so so awesome to hold and snuggle a baby again. God new we needed him and Jordon needed us.

Bella is really blossoming. She is starting to walk by herself,but she still needs to hang on to the furniture. Bella is still potty training and doing a very good job at that. Did i say that we are very proud of her. Bella is very smart and knows what you are saying.Sometimes she just chooses to not listen. Oh boy she is just like our other children. They choose what they want to hear and not want to hear.

A trip to the E.R for Bella

A trip for Bella, mom and dad to the emergency room. Bella and Megan were rocking in baby Jordons swing. Bella fell chin first on our hard wood floors and cut her chin open. Poor little Bella was bleeding pretty good. Our neighbor Stacy and her daughter Rachel came over to help so we could get Bella and her things ready to go to the hospital. Then big sister Amber got here to watch all the children so we could go to the hospital.

A 2 hour trip to the hospital and now Bella has 3 stitches in her chin . She is doing much better now that we are home. Bella got up in the rocking chair to rock with Megan. They are so close and they don't like being away from each other. Now both of them are sleeping on the blankets together. We hope this is all for this crazy week.

When we went to the E.R. there where some very sick people with the swine flu. Yes, the swine flu has hit Montana and it has hit hard. We pray for all of us to stay healthy and not get the swine flu. I am a germ aphobic, i don't like germs. I sure don't like to see any of my family sick. So we are sanatizing everything.

We also would like to Thank everyone who left a comment !! Thank you so much for the encouraging words. Mandy ,thank you so much for your donation to Sreckos fund..
It really helps when people get it, about adoption and our special children..

To say it has been a bad week~ is and understatement!!!

We have had a very very hard week. We were so happy to be trying to bring Srecko home..We were glad to be back on tract with it all. That is until we started telling my side of the family~(Jody"s). Then we put it on our blog and got some not so nice things said to us.

First of all ~ I was told i have rocks in my head and that this is all stupid. That i am not thinking clearly. Start using my head , not my heart to think. That there is no way i could love all of my children and take care of them. ( Not a very good thing to say to me.) I love all of my children with all my heart and i could love lots more. Our children are our lives and we love them so much. We also thought that another family member would loan us the funds we needed to be able to travel very soon to get Srecko home. But it seems this family member is against this adoption also. We have been told by one family member not to count on her to help watch our children when we would travel.

We do have our Expedition and camp trailer up for sale ,to raise the funds we need for our adoption. We are hoping they sell soon.

That said , i want to tell you all that we love our children very very much and that they mean the world to us. We could have been empty nesters, but we chose to adopt and we love every child we have adopted as if they were born from us. We do not tell anyone how many children they should have or not have. I have seen plenty of people who should not have any children. But i don't tell them that. That is none of my business .

We would sell everything we have to have all of our children home with us. The only thing that matters to us is that we love and take awesome care of our children. You can't put a price tag on a childs life. Well we can't . We love to have a big family, our house is always hopping. We would not want it any other way. We chose this for us and are so happy. We also know this life style is not for everyone. But for us , it was what we were chosen to do.

We also got an e-mail , that didn't sit very well with us. We were told we were committing fraud about our homestudy and our USCIS approval from another adoptive parent. That person went on to tell us that we would be breaking the law and that we have a legal obligation .I won't go into all the details. But it really hit a nerve.

Well we have never broken any laws and have not committed fraud. At any time in our lives. We also know how to do our adoption paperwork to submitt to the country in which we want to adopt from. This is not our first adoption. We were very heart broken by this. Not that this person even knows us personally. But that somebody would even accuse us of fraud or breaking the laws of our country.That said and done.

We do our own paperwork for our International adoptions and work right with the facilitator for the country in which we chose to adopt from. We will continue to do our own paperwork to submitt, if we need to submitt any more.

Our hearts were very broken~ We wanted so bad to be able to travel to get Srecko this month. But with the funding issue. We will need to wait until our camp trailer and expedion sell or we get our tax return. We sure hope then that we can bring our son home then. But we are leaving it up to God. If another family can move faster than us , then we will let Srecko go to that family. We will still be trying to raise funds to adopt him, until we know any differently.

If you don't have anything nice to say ~ please keep it to your self. We have had enough negative comments all week. We were so happy about Srecko and love him very much. We love him so much that we just want him to have a family and be happy. We also want him well taken care of. But that is only our wishes for him.

We put our blog on private this week for a few days. We couldn't take any more negative comments.

Please pray for Srecko to have a family . Even if it is not us. This little guy is very special to all of us in our family. Our children have a very hard time with this that Srecko is not home yet with us..

Thank you to Paula , Briggett and Kelly for your donations to help bring Srecko home. That was very thoughtful of you.. Bless you .

Please pray for Ruslana and her family!!!

Please pray for Ruslana and her family that want to adopt her and bring her home soon.Ruslana is going to be sent to the institution in two weeks . Her family can't get there that soon. They are not sure if the institution will let them adopt her from there. So please pray for her and her family. They sure would love to be able to bring her home very soon. It is really hard to adopt from some institutions. They just don't allow it. Very sad for all of these children.

Please God keep Ruslana safe until her family can get there..They already love her so much..
