The waiting....

Waiting really is what we have been doing since the journey to our two beautiful daughters has started. Whether it is waiting on documents to come in the mail, dr. appointments, MONEY, home study, or the USCIS. Oh and can we say the deadlines that go with the waiting, oh and the forms making sure they are correct oh and the redoing of documents when their incorrect. Ok so this post sounds like I am complaining by no means am I doing that, but what I am saying is that God has taught me patience.
Right now we are waiting on the USCIS and getting our fingerprint appointments, along with the deadline that we need to meet so we can go get our beautiful daughters. Have you ever been so close to something, and it seem like you will never get there. A lot of hurdles have been thrown our way during our journey, some that we knew would come up others that we didn't, but God has been there the whole time with us and helping us to get over them all. I am just so ready to go get my beautiful daughters and have them home with us. They have a mommy and daddy who are ready to shower them with all the love that we have to give, a brother and sister who can't wait to be a big brother and a big sister, grandparents who can't wait to spoil them rotten, aunts and uncles both biological and adoptive that can't wait to love on them and spoil them rotten, and so much more.

Please pray that we hear something from the USCIS this week or beginning of next!!! My God is bigger than any hurdle and he has called us to these two beautiful little girls and for these two beautiful little girls to be apart of our family!

This week we will be having 2 separate fundraisers to help bring our 2 girls home....On Midnight the 24th to Midnight the 25th we will be having a pendant/necklace fundraiser. They are beautiful. I will be posting the website on Friday evening. We will get $5 of each pendant sold. (Custom orders not included) When checking out please indicate that it is for the Lane family.

On Sunday after church we will be having a spaghetti luncheon after church.

We are waiting on the last (our) government step, and then we will be able to mail our complete, or should I say the rest of our dossier to EE and hopefully ;) get submitted pretty quickly and get invited to our beautiful daughters country.

It is very exciting and I can't wait to be able to meet my beautiful daughters, hold them, kiss on them and of course bring them HOME!

Happy Birthday Ellee

Happy 5th Birthday to my sweet Ellee! Today started out as a hard day, I was really upset thinking about how my girl was spending her birthday in an orphanage half way around the country, not getting cake, not getting ice cream, not getting presents, not getting showered with love on her special day, and it really depressed me. I have a very rough morning, and for anyone who knows me I love to smile, I love to laugh, but today it just wasn't happening. It was so bad that I thought I was going to have to leave work early because I was so down and out. Just when I thought my day was probably going to get worst IT DIDN'T it got SO MUCH BETTER....I went to my computer and opened my email and to my surprise I had an email from another Reece's Rainbow family and it said that they were currently adopting their daughter from the same orphanage that our daughter Ellee is in and she was able to get some pictures what I didn't know was that she got a video to, and when I opened and watched the video I cried like a big ole baby :) It completely changed my mood and the way I saw things the rest of the day. Now to just hurry up and get my girls home, so they do not have to spend another birthday, or holiday alone.

sorry blog followers

I wanted to first say I am sorry for not blogging lately, been super busy with getting everything ready for our final visits with our SW. Yes I said final visits!!!! She came to our house on Tuesday and we had a great visit then we had to drive 3 hours to where she is located at on Thursday. We did our seperate interviews and then our interview together. To say the least it was interesting. It was a great visit though and she said that she is going to try to get everything done by Tuesday that way we can get everything in and finished. We are praying for an early appointment with the USCIS and a quick approval. We are almost finished and then we will go get to see our beautiful daughters! God is so good to us and we forget to say thank you for all the little blessings and big blessings that he provides in our lives daily. I need to remember to thank him more, and remember if it weren't for him then we would not be able to say that we are blessed with two beautiful daughters!

Please keep us in your prayers! :)
