Moldova adoption movement? Could be soon...

So we received an email today from our agency with what may be good news in terms of bringing home baby sister by autumn (my self-appointed goal, by the way with little to no basis in reality). The gist of the email is that they don't expect any significant movement on us until April or May. I consider this good news because it means something is likely to happen after that. We are one of the first in line to receive a referral once things are all straightened out!! 

So I guess that means it's time to start getting her room ready and stop using it as a catch-all for everything...yeah, gonna be a lot of work. 

You know what though? We picked up the most awesome armoire the other night to repaint and put in her room. Here are two photos: 

And the kicker...we got it out of the neighbor's trash. Obviously Damon wasn't keen on being seen pulling something out of the neighbor's trash, but this was SO WORTH IT!! This armoire is solid wood and weighs at least two hundred pounds! Painted up this will be a great piece for baby sister's room. Along with the headboard and footboard that also need painted for the room. Yep, lots to do. 

Please keep up your prayers for us - we need them!! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to check in on us!

Happy 5th birthday, Wesley

Wesley turned 5 today! 

We had a little swimming party at the YMCA and a family party before that. Talk about a long day!! Mom & Dad are exhausted, but so is Wes, so it works out. I haven't uploaded all our pictures yet, but I will soon. {Now I know I always say that, but I'm having my tonsils out in two weeks, so I'm serious when I say I'll have some free time. How I'll feel is another story...} 

Please pray for Wes as he's been having a difficult time at school, which so far ranks as the understatement of the year. We're working hard to get answers and find out solutions that work for all parties involved. Please pray for me as work has been rough {another understatement}, and please pray for Damon as he's been working very hard to eat better and has been losing weight like a fiend. And of course the ol' stand-by prayer - for our daughter in Moldova. We haven't given up hope that this year is our year to bring her home!!
