I am getting so excited and nervous and everything else I can think of, I am getting so much closer to bringing my baby home. Went for our fingerprints yesterday we were not even there for 10 minutes and I thought it would be something we would have to sit and wait forever and fill out a million more papers, but we didn't. So now all I am waiting on is that last form (171H I think is what it is called) and then off to the the State House and then I guess everything will be mailed off for approval.
Womanless Fashion show is Saturday night I hope we bring in a lot of money because we don't have much time to spare we need all we can get. After this we are planning more fundraisers asap, the clock is ticking and I need to get Duncan and bring him home.

It was a beautiful weekend with sunshine and warmer weather, Thank the Lord! Went to my friends house and met her little girl she was so precious and I can't get her off my mind she was the most loving baby I have ever seen....I wanted to take her home. I hope Duncan will be the same such a joy, I'm sure he will be.

In the morning is our trip to get our fingerprints, I am so nervous and excited. We are finally getter closer but I am worried about the financial part, I know I need to have faith. This week we have had several people make donations which really touches my heart. I know it will come within time. Our Womanless Fashion show is this coming Saturday this is going to be so funny, we have County Deputies, Jail Officers and some State Highway Patrolmen..... it took me a lot to convince some of them to dress like women. But when they see Duncan's little face they know it is worth making a fool out of themselves. THANKS GUYS, IT MEANS ALOT !!!!

Today I received my notarized copies of our home study in the mail, so I hope they have already hand delivered the one to DSS in Columbia. We go get our finger prints done on Monday, everything seems to be rolling on just not fast enough for me. At least now I feel like I am making progress. Noticed on RR that one little girl lost her family, this has really bothered me...how does this happen? She was committed to about the same time we committed to Duncan. I hope somebody comes along and commits to her soon.

I am so excited today I found one of my old friends I use to work with on facebook, I told her about Duncan and to my surprise she has a 19 month old little girl with Down Syndrome. She said that she was wonderful and such a blessing to their family. We are suppose to go to dinner this coming Saturday so we can meet her. I can't wait...I am so glad that I will have a friend that can help me along the way and give me the advice I am going to need. She is a wonderful person, I can't believe we got reconnected after all this time in such wonderful circumstances. I know this may sound crazy to some but I believe God brought us back together for this very reason, so I would have someone to talk to and learn from:)

Received our draft of our home study everything looked good, now just waiting for it to be submitted to DSS. I asked them to hand deliver it so it would get done faster, said it would cost me extra, but who cares? I want this done as quick as possible and I am willing to pay. Everyday that little one sits over there waiting for his family and I am trying my best to get to him faster.

Had a lot of snow last night my kids loved it...so did we. We made snowmen to represent us all, it is hilarious :) Next year their will be a fifth little snowman, I can't wait.

Yesterday was Alaina's 10th birthday, I can't believe my baby is in double digits!!! They grow up so fast. We had a sleep over for her Friday night it was so much fun. She had 4 girls spend the night we took them to Fuddruckers and we had a great time. There was a clown there and he made balloon hats for all of them they looked so silly but cute. Aaron loved this, all he wanted to do was torment them and get right in the middle of everything they were doing which really irritated Alaina. But isn't this what little brothers do ??? Our auction went really well we did a whole lot more than I had expected. We made over $1500.00 but I think some people were still coming in and getting the stuff that was left over so we were getting more. I should know for sure next week....I am so excited !!! My husband was so worried about getting the money and I told him just have FAITH when God is behind you he makes all things possible !!! I know we have a long way to go but at least we are ahead more now than I thought we would be, but I know it will come one way or another. People have been so generous to give it is so touching that perfect strangers will stand behind you. This morning I was just thinking what it is going to be like when I first meet little Duncan is he going to warm up to me or is he going to shy away. I don't want to overwhelm him but I know I am going to want to run to him and pick him up and give him the biggest hug and kiss he has ever had. It is so unbelievable how I can love this child so much and have never even meet him I never thought this was possible but I love him so much it makes my heart hurt. I can't wait to bring him home :)

Today I was a little emotional thinking about Duncan , wish I was on my way to pick him up and bring him to his new home. The Judge I work for is in the process of adopting his second little girl from China. Yesterday the day of his mothers funeral he got a call saying he and his wife had been matched with a little girl who was 10 months old. It really touched him that God had taken away someone really special in his life, his mother and in turn gave him a wonderful gift a little girl who is being named after his mother. I know God is in control and knows actually the right time for everything. This really touched me and gave me chills as he showed me the picture of his new little girl. Please help me in praying for this family as they bring this special child into their home.

Yesterday received our appointment to be fingerprinted, still waiting on the home study to come back. This waiting is really hard I am so ready just to go and get him and bring him home. Still worried about leaving my children for 2 weeks, we have never been apart for more than a weekend, so I don't know how this is going to be. When we come back and have to go back again for 2 weeks I am sure it is going to be even harder for them. But at least they can look forward to us coming home with their new brother :)
