Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

Judges, Doctors, Bombs, and the Flu

What a day!

First, Ellie woke up with a high fever, took her to the doctor, it's the flu.

The doctor's appt was previously scheduled. I had plans to talk with Ellie's primary care physician about the mixed messages I had received from her pediatric orthopedist. We made plans for a change. We now plan to take Ellie to Shriner's Hospital in Tampa, Fl. We hope to develop a more specific plan for repairing her hip. Please keep praying.

Then, Brandon called. He was in Savannah, 2 hours away from home. They were supposed to be playing soccer. There was a bomb threat. I made him promise to call back soon. He did, and the game had resumed.

Then I had a phone call from the Clerk of Court. We have turned in documents for the domestication of Ellie's and Josie-Tatum's adoptions. (This would be like readopting them here in the US. The primary purpose is to have US records of their adoption and obtain a GA birth certificate.) Anyway, long story short, there was a failure to communciate, error somewhere. Our date for court is March 6, but the judge's secretary had today's date. According to them, we were to show up in court today, we didn't, so the case was dismissed. Now what???? The clerk of court said call the judge's office tomorrow.

So, after all of that, I'm going to try to get some sleep!
