LID and our Jimmy John's Fundraiser

I just realized that we never updated everyone about our LID. We learned at the end of the month that we had a log-in-date of March 21st. So the day of my last post, when I was feeling discouraged and disappointed, we actually had been logged in; I just didn't know it yet. I think it is really cool that we were logged in on World Down Syndrome Day! We were told to expect travel four to five months from LID. That still seems like a very long time to wait, but we are trying to be patient. We know that God's timing is best.

We also heard back about our Jimmy John's fundraiser. We were greatly encouraged to learn that we made $434 for our girls' adoptions! Than you very much to everyone who participated. Our next fundraiser will be in May at The Cone, and we will pass more details along as we have them.

In addition to praising God for the good news about our adoption, we would appreciate prayers for our family. We have been very sick again, and both Greg and I feel more tired than we can ever remember feeling before. It is easy to be discouraged when we feel so run-down. Please pray that God will remind of us of his incredible faithfulness and that we will have a season of rest soon. Thank you for your friendship and support.
