I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

Adoption Update, sort of

I had been expecting to hear from Pierre, our connection in Holland for over a week. He had been in Benin, and was supposed to get some new pictures of Little Sister for me, and an update on how the paperwork was going in the African system of bureaucracy. I waited, and wondered, and started to stress.
Then, my dad called the other day and said, "I forgot to tell you that Pierre's wife called a few days ago. He is in the hospital with Malaria"

Which explains why he hadn't E-mailed me an update, or any pictures.

It is just one delay after another, and now the poor man is in the HOSPITAL with Malaria.

So, just in case you wondered, we are still trying to bring little sister home. But September is looking less and less likely, especially since I sincerely doubt Andy would let me get on a plane and fly anywhere at this time. Maybe by October Africa will have the paperwork done, AND I will will be on some meds that work right.
One day at a time, right?

Praying for you that your body would heal. And if not heal, find a middle ground that you can live with. And, now, that your adoption will go swiftly and smoothly. Thank you for the encouragement you left on our blogs. And for praying for me when God brings me to mind. It is so refreshing to know that people do. As I was laying in bed last night, I thought of all of my blog buddies and how I already pray for so many of their needs on a regular basis. And how God has blessed me with friends like you that do the same. May He continue to bless you. I wish I could give you a hug.

Oh, Bethany!!!! I am sorry!

Although it cracks me up that your dad would "forget" to tell you that someone was in the hospital with MALARIA! lol!!! Just an everyday occurrance at the Binkley house--someone has malaria and in the hospital.

Okay, so I am hoping that the new medication works and that you get to see someone soon who can decide something positive that will end all this mess and get your life back to normal!

Praying for you all, Bethany! So, how soon could the adoption process actually go at this point in time? What are the next steps that would have to be made and at what point in time until you have Little Sister?
