Quick note to let you all know Tommy was discharged! It’s so good to be home! I missed everyone so much, although I got to see a couple of my sweeties on Sunday!
Tommy missed everyone, too!
Check out his reaction to getting in the car and starting to GO!
Now contrast that with his reaction when we turned off the highway and were greeted with the familiar sight of cornfields and the smell of dairy farms. We were getting close to HOME and he knew it!
I decided to take enough time to blog this morning just to explain to everyone why I’ll be unavailable for a while.
We came home with as-yet-unanswered questions but a workable plan and a GREAT team behind us, the possibility that Tommy still has diarrhea, loads of stuff to put away, a sick baby (picked up an awful, croupy, junky cough in the hospital–coughs pitiably until he projectile vomits), feeding pump, meds, a few days’ worth of special formula and a new routine for Tommy.
Came home to more than a hundred emails and a family who needs their mama’s undivided attention for the near future.
I had ambitious plans to blog about four more families before Tommy was discharged, but since my attempts to help my friends fundraise seem to do them more harm than good (heh heh), God clearly gave the gift to my amazing friend Julia, AND since the families I wanted to help are already featured in her current fundraiser…
I’ll simply invite you again to please go visit Julia’s blog and take part in her fun fundraiser to help four special families bring home their special children!
The Horton family, bringing home Gary and Marnie
Grace Knuth, bringing home Tony from Pleven
The Taylor family, bringing home Samuel, Sara and Patience
The Unroe family, bringing home Matthew, Charity and Johnathan from Pleven
Also, I just checked Jim and Linda Herr’s Reece’s Rainbow family sponsorship page and saw that the amount in their adoption account hasn’t changed by even a penny! I’m praying that God will put it on some hearts to bless and encourage this family by helping them bring Soleil and Anastasia home! The Herr’s Reece’s Rainbow page
