Finally....a Porch Floor!

We got an update from Mary, our caseworker yesterday. I tried to post this post yesterday, but didn't get around to it! So...here it is......makes my cry!

"Big S & Little S got their letters. Big S said to tell his brother that he does like to read, and he can't wait to play with him. He said to tell mom and dad that he can't wait for them to come to Ethiopia and that he loves them. Little S loved her letter. She was upset about something when I came to visit with them and as soon as she saw the letter and picture she smiled and kept telling me to look at the picture. Big S explain to her again who everyone was in the picture. They are both very excited about their new family."

The other great, exciting news is that they poured the cement in the floor of our porch yesterday morning! Looks like we are a "go" to raise the porch roof on Saturday. We weren't quite sure if we were going to be able to get the columns in on time, but they are being delivered on Friday! The siding is progressing too......




We continue to be WAY overbudget....stressing a lot about that......
