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 .
