Life Without a Computer

I have been without a computer all week and it's driving me crazy! I can't stand missing out on what's going on in everyone's lives. So what does one do when one doesn't have a computer? Clean and organize like a mad woman!!! My label maker is still smokin'. :)
It's been good for me to keep my mind busy. Thank you all for your continued prayers, emails, phone calls, cards and hugs...it means so much! Our last conversation with our attorney was last Monday. Still no word from Jessica about her intentions other than what we learned the previous Wednesday (Dec. 31st)...that she hadn't had the baby yet, was researching ways to get funding if she would keep the baby and that her boyfriend and family still wanted her to do the adoption.

At this point, we are moving on with life and continuing to pray for Jessica and the baby. We only want what is God's plan for us and for her. There are still many questions we have for God...one of them being "Why bring us this close?". We may never know the answers, but we do know that over a hundred people have been praying for Jessica and this baby...maybe these are the only prayers that have ever been prayed for her.


The past couple of weeks have been difficult, but I have held my children longer, hugged my husband tighter and have grown so much closer to my Heavenly Father. I've also gained a few more friends....I AM TRULY BLESSED!

I truly hope that your family and Jessica and the baby have felt the prayers. They are coming from near and far...
We will trust the Lord's decision.
