Introducing our budding family. We hope you will enjoy watching us grow... and everything else under the sun. ;)

Slow Down for Yellow Lights

How fast life can change in the blink of an eye, the flash of a light, or a ring of a phone call... that's the evidence of the past 2 days.

Sure, Hayden's 1st days as a first grader should be awesome... However, lately with good - we are tested with bad.

For instance... our papers from the Sec. of State should NOW be in the mail to our international agency. Even though they were mailed over two weeks ago. Yes, only 3 forms...

Next up... another change of paperwork for Kazakhstan. In regards to finances and number matching, Michael spent most of the first hour and half after he got home from work yesterday figuring out what didn't match, returning phone calls and completing a NEW form for the Kazakh government.

Lastly, and I do hope last (but most likely won't be least) because I don't know how much more I can take this week... we found out 10 minutes ago one of our adoption loans "expired". What bank says "Oh, you're not using this money? Then we'll take it away since you don't need it". AHHHH!!! Obviously we weren't notified of this, and they don't care that it was for our adoption. How we will manage to find the additional funds to bring home Baby V at this point, let alone finish paying the remainder of the fees is more than tear-jerking. Gotta love the recession.

So that's where we are today. Stuck at a yellow light...
