In Case You Were Wondering...

* NO...I have not heard anything about my TA!!!

* Yes, I am stressed about it. There hasn't been anything coming from China this week...so frustrating!!

* Wesleigh woke up 3 times last night!

* I am trying to leave for China in ONE week!

* Which is the same day 2 of the boys start school!

* I have a large gathering at my house on Aug. 7

* I will not be here for it if I leave on Aug. 5 :)

* This fact does not stress me out :)

* Wesleigh woke up 3 times last night!

* I am very thankful that I am someone who loses weight instead of gaining when stressed!

* Adoption is a great weight-loss plan!

* I am getting my hair done today!! Thank you Lord!!

* Wesleigh woke up 3 times last night!

* I have to bring a meal to Bryce and the other French horn players today at 3:00. He wanted me to make shredded pork. Very sweet!

* I was up 'till 11:30 making shredded pork last night!

* Wesleigh woke up 3 times last night!

OK...you get the jist! I am trying to keep it together, and I am pretty sure I can hold it together today...No guarantees for tomorrow though :)

What a crazy, busy, but blessed time you are in right now. The anticipation of your travel to China has got to be overwhelming, yet at the same time you must continue to meet the needs of so many others! I will stop right now and pray for you...God is good and He will see you through.

Praying for that TA!

My daughter has problems to this day waking in the night. We were told that we could give her melatonin, which is over the counter. I crush it up and put it in applesauce and within 30 minutes she's asleep again. Talk to your pediatrician to see if this is OK to use for Wesley!

You made me laugh out loud:) So not fair when a 3 three old gets up during the night!
Praying for TA and that you get to leave on the 5th!!!!!!!

So how is Miss W sleeping these days....does she wake up at night....tee hee. Melatonin 1 mg works for us too. Can't wait to see Miss G with her new family. Out with the bad air in with the good deep breathing air.

Waiting sucks, I know first hand. Praying for that TA and believing for an August 5th departure. Can't wait to see Miss Gracie!

So sorry to hear that Wesleigh is waking up. Would she sleep better in the truddle part? Be sure she isn't having any caffeine after lunchtime... that includes cola, moutain d@w, and any chocolate. Also, how about a little milk prior to bed to help her sleep or a warm bath or a back rub. Hope you find something that works!

Soon mama...soon! Our friends art. 5 is July 20th and they were just told last night that their TA is on it's way...praying yours is coming, too!!!!

Jennifer,
As I laid awake last night with insomnia last night I was wondering if you have a siderail on her bed? When we moved our youngest to a bed we put up a siderail and left it there, it made him feel like he was in a crib and didn't get up. Just a thought, you may even have tried that. And the melatonin is a good idea, we use it. Our 9 yr old has trouble sleeping too.

Praying for TA to come today and for you to feel better today.

Okay, so now I see why you have been on my heart for the past several days!!! Everything will fall into place in God's timing! And Wow...Mrs Linda you are in my prayers also!! 4 kids and a possible LARGE Gathering is a tremedous task. Jennifer and Richard are so fortunate to have you guys to depend on!!! Love you all!!
