Week 11: Hope

Week eleven was not much more different than the past several on the pregnancy front.  Still nauseous, still dizzy from vertigo.  Tired.  I don't want to complain so I'm going to leave it at that - now you know.  Sad news this week when a friend who was due around the same time as me found out her baby had stopped growing weeks ago. Another reminder that each day - each moment even - is a gift with no guarantees.

In other news, the birthday party went well.  Hannah was turning five and celebrated with a friend who turned 9.  We had a rainbow theme complete with tons of multi-colored foods, treats, crafts and fun.  Check out the pictures here.  It was a good time.  I can't believe Hannah is now five and getting ready for kindergarten.  So surreal at times.  I know I'm going to think the same thing when she's graduating high school!

We got some updates from my sister-in-law on their adoption.  They've been working towards an Ethiopian adoption for well over a year now and things are at a stand still.  In the meantime, they were presented with an opportunity to adopt a two year old Chinese girl with some special needs.  They still plan to continue on with their Ethiopian adoption but are also moving forward in the process to bring home this little girl.  We're super excited for them and praying for lots of grace and patience in the long, arduous, paperwork process.

So there's an update on week eleven.  Until next time....

Take care,
