This stunningly, beautiful quilt was made by a precious woman named Edda. She is a Dear family friend of Dr Elizabeth. It was donated to help raise funds for our boys. It is stunningly beautiful!
Thank You! Dr. Elizabeth, we are humbled by your efforts to help us bring home 3 boys, so deserving of freedom.
Tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. Tom starts his journey to Bulgaria. He will not see the boys until the 23rd. The donated (Thank You and God Bless you Danielle & Tom!) frequent flyer miles were only available with an earlier arrival. Hopefully Tom can use that extra time to find a few Bulgarian costume vests and shirts/pants for the boys! I so wanted to make them, but could not find a pattern or design. So after purchasing something I can get the idea and make more for our own for our 5 Bulg*ar*ian Princes!
It feels like the 23rd is so far away, but it will be here before you know it!
Please pray for me as I hold the fort down with 8 kids, 2 extra special women and 3 dogs! My attempts in having hired help (while Tom was gone) were ruined when the 2 gals did not pass the very strict back ground checks. It was minor violations, but the Vulnerable Adult law is very strict about this. It goes to show, that things kids today who think the "dumb" kid stuff they do won't haunt them later, they really do catch up with you.
Last year when Tom was gone first trip (March 2011) I accidentally mixed up one of MA and SPs medications (they take almost the exact same meds except for one!) and ended up having to stay up for 24 hours straight with MA. I had great help then, thank goodness! This year I will be much more cautious!
So this trip, because I am so human and frail, relying only on the strength of God our Father! Your prayers would be greatly coveted!
