OK, so after the last post, I left off on the burning of the popcorn note.... That night, as I had mentioned, was filled with getting up every hour or so, to tend to the fire. The next morning, which now would be Thursday, Tim came by after getting of from the fire station. He too had had a busy 24 hours. We packed our things, and decided to come home, eat breakfast, gather more clothes if we didn't have electricity and go to the YMCA for HOT showers!!!
Lunch time was approaching, and really wanting a hot meal, but not wanting to venture back to cold homes, we decided to once again battle the cold, and look for a place who offered either free kids meal with the purchase of an adult meal, or at minimum a reduced rate... Here we go again! Brrrr
OK, so that I am not making anyone wait any longer, I did get a call today, from the O director! NEWS??? Yes! Good? Maybe! Let me back up. Since the electricity had been out for more than 24 hours, my phone battery was ready to kick the bucket. It was beeping at me, and the battery bar was red.... After Tim brought us home, I got a phone call, and you guessed it, from Gretchen! I answered and said something like...."HI" "do you have news for me?" This is what I heard. Yes. It was not a call to say that we were out, but a call to tell me that our attorney, bless her heart, made yet another trip to IBESR only to sit and wait, and then to be told by the director of IBESR that she was to busy and to come back next WEDNESDAY! UGG! Seriously? Are you kidding me? OK folks, I am a little sad, but I do believe that we will get out of this crazy office soon! I really pray that it is very soon. I was also told that the director is trying to make out an agreement with dispense and parquet... I really have a lot of respect for the attorney and the director, who I really think is just trying to help us in the long run. What this all means exactly? I don't know. Other than we need to be praying for the two offices who don't seem to be on board... Praying for the attorney and the director for strength, and the right words when dealing with not so easy offices, and for my son to continue to learn about his family, through pictures, skype time, and visits.... Until then, I will continue to pray, and give God the respect and honor he deserves. He is in control, not me. He knows my heart, mind and desires. I pray our file will be approved and released soon, and that our process will not be delayed any further. Please pray with us, and believe with us, that we are going to be released very soon!
