Our medicals and police reports will expire in April for our Country.
So on Monday we go to the police dept. for new ones. This is a steal- it costs only 50 cents! Then we notarize (free) and apostille $10.00 + gas for 140 mile round trip to the apostille office on Wed. in our 15 passenger van.
On Tuesday we both see the Dr to sign the two medical forms each for Tom and I. That is a $500.00 visit. Then we notarize (free) and apostille $20.00 with the police reports.
This week we wait some more. We wait for word on something we hoped to hear last week. Please pray with us that our Country moves our paperwork foreward quickly so that Tom can go first visit to see and HOLD our precious boys.
Last August Tom was in our Country. He was picking up Julius & Pauly. He received word while he was there that Moses was very ill and in the infirmary. A very Dear Sister in Christ was there where Moses is, when he was sick. She was able to hold him and have a picture taken with him. He is so tiny. We pray every day that he will continue his fight to live. These little boys may be tiny but they have strong wills!
Their strength reminds me of our Susie who lived with us 16 yrs in our Group Home. She had DS and developed Alzheimers. The Drs said she'd go to Heaven quickly. Once we called to re-new her meds and her Dr responded "Is she still alive!?" I thought that was terrible! We had wondered if her will to live would be strong, since she really couldn't understand. We found out quickly that she was not going to go without a fight! Her spirit was strong. Much stronger than we could have imagined!
Our 3 boys have faced challenges living without a mommy and a dad. They have had to be strong. They have done a great job!
