Never a Dull Moment

Our Dima Day at Easy Street was a super success.  We raised enough money to cover Daniel's Visa and medical exam which is about $500.  Not only did we raise money, but we had fun with our friends and THAT is priceless.  A HUGE thank you to all who came out to support us!  Our next fundraiser begins tomorrow, March 11th.  It is a Pampered Chef Fundrasier!  Some of you have requested this one, so I hope this is another successful fundraiser for Daniel!  To learn more about it, please click here.

In the meantime we have had a little bit of a medical issue with our oldest son, Jeremiah.  He had a stye in his right eye that has turned into something pretty nasty.  I will not bore you with all of the details, but suffice to say even after receiving some medical treatment he is currently at the ER with Eric up at Shands in Gainesville.  My poor Jeremiah can hardly even see out of his infected eye not to mention that the infection is pretty icky.  The last text message that I received said that the ER doctor was consulting with a pediatric opthamologist.  I am praying that they have wisdom as to how to handle this infection.  In all, however, we have spent 2 days attempting to get proper treatment and Jeremiah has suffered.

On a really happy note, however, we got our passports today!!!!!  That means we can really get moving on our paper work- YAY!!!!  Seeing those passports made this all just a little more real and that did my heart some good.  We also received our business cards and prayer cards that we made up to pass out to anyone and everyone.  The more people that hear our story and see our blog the better.  And who knows?  Maybe another little one will be found, too.

Another piece of good news:  there is another little one from Daniel's orphanage that has been found (maybe even 2!)!  It is so wonderful to hear of little ones being found by their forever families.  I can only imagine how happy that makes our Heavenly Father, too.  Eric and I pray that our adoption not only impacts Daniel (of course!), but other children and families as well.  If you have ever considered adoption, even if just a fleeting thought, may I ask you to prayerfully consider one of Reece's Rainbow's waiting children?

Well, I am getting text updates from Eric.  It looks as though Jeremiah will be heading back up to Gainesville tomorrow for further evaluation.  In the meantime we are to continue antibiotics and warm compresses.  What a long day it has been for my sweet boy.  He has not been home since 11:45 this morning and it is now 8:30 in the evening.  My poor, poor Jeremiah.

Never a dull moment, huh?
