We are one step closer to Halainah's Mei Mei (little sister). Tony and I had our medical physicals for our next adoption on Saturday. We spent a lot of time with the doctor and he was very thorough. Which is good I suppose. So another step down and about a bazillion to go. It's a huge relief to get this part done because it has been holding us up a bit. I know our social worker will be happy. So I feel like I accomplished something. However I have a million other things on my plate including finishing up Halainah's birthday plans. I am a little stressed about her party but hopefully things will fall into place.

Other than that Tony and I had a jammed packed weekend, like always. Of course we didn't accomplish all that we needed to. But we came close. We even squeezed in a little time to run into our 2 favorite consignment shops but I'm sad to report that we did not find any good deals...very sad.

And I can never put up a post without some cute pics. of Halainah. So here are a few that I took of Halainah on Friday before leaving for Grandma's and Grandpa's. Halainah was having a blast twirling in her tutu skirt in a big field across from our house. Halainah's super cute skirt was given to her by Aunt Deb. Thanks Aunt Deb! It was a little chilly outside so she's not wearing the shirt you gave her...I had to put on long sleeves.

I have to run for now...It's late here and I have much to do. But I wanted to quickly add that we took another step towards our 2nd daughter. And I have to throw it out there that I am incredibly nervous about this next adoption. Times are so unstable like we all know. It's hard to ignore the voices in my head that are saying, "what are you on earth are you going to afford another adoption?" I am trying to follow my heart and God's words, "And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me." - Matthew 18:5. This is God's plan.
