ONEderland!

Thank you for a good title for this blog Julie!

As of Saturday, I hit the onederland weight....the weight with a 1 in front of it. Now to many that isn't much, but to me, that is the world. I have not had a 1 in front of my weight in forever. I am feeling great and the weather has improved enough that I can walk outside and I am anxious to get started. It will be easier to get more weight off and keep it off if I am walking. The treadmill is a total bummer for me, but outside walking is so fun. I plug in my Mp3 and walk like crazy. Before winter I was able to walk 3.5 miles without effort....lets see how long it takes me to get back to that!

Prayers needed for the following things

1. Curt's brother Derek is waiting for a full liver transplant. As soon as a donor is found he will be ready. He has Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis and without a new liver, he will deteriorate until he cannot make it anymore. He is in pain, although he tries to convince everyone he is fine. He is swelling with excessive fluid in his abdomen as well, so prayers are coveted for a donor to be found and quickly and full recovery from the transplant.
It is a hard thing to ask for prayers for...in order for his prayers to be answered, someone Else's must be taken...very sad.

2. For one of my past families. They are having issues in the home and are considering different avenues. If anyone is interested in possibly adopting a child from Haiti that is currently going to be disrupted contact me for further information. Prayers for them as they make decisions regarding their entire family, the child and themselves, for peace in their situation.

3. For all of my families currently in process...that papers will speed thru and children will be leaving Haiti in a torrent to spend the summers with their new families!

Hi! My hubby and I are currently in IBESR waiting for our two boys to come home...slowly. We have 2 kids, both adopted, and are black like our haitian boys. We are interested in knowing more about the possible disruption in one of your previous families. We have workded with Heritage on our first two adoptions and are currently working with them on our Haitian adoption. I would like to learn more about this if you would.
