Adoption/ Maverick update

Oh my goodness my head is spinning.

We got TA last week just two days before Chinese new Year.

We are trying to get to Joshua as soon as possible.

Unfortunately because we were so close to the holiday we could not get one appointment confirmed. 

However we are still planning the trip hoping to get the confirmation before it is wheels up!

Risky I know. He has waited long enough in my opinion.

We are praying that God will get us the appointment we need.

In the mean time I am busy as can be with preparations.

Packing for 6 people to travel to the other side of the world to two different climates in not all that easy.

Here is what I have been up to:

Calling the schools to get the kids out for the trip

Shopping and packing, unpacking and packing again

making sure we have supplies for all of Adam's needs

lining up care for the dogs

praying, praying, praying

making sure the big boys will be okay

making flight and hotel reservations.

reading books to my two Chinese babies so they know what to expect and how they might feel

communicating with Joshua's caregivers about our plans

praying, praying, praying,

contacting other adoptive mama's whose babies I will love on seeing if they want to send anything with me

getting prescriptions from the pharmacy

discussing the finances a 100 times and more with Greg

collecting supplies from my friends to deliver to Harmony House

praying, praying, praying

All the while our regular life goes on.

And sometimes that can be a little overwhelming too!

This weekend we took Maverick over to CCA where AK rides.

We loaded him on the trailer and headed over Saturday morning.

He's been doing so good that we wanted her trainer to ride him and give us her opinion.

He also has developed some bad habits we want to break.

Audrey Kate as not as strong of a rider as her trainer and Maverick can get away with being a little lazy with AK.

He looked beautiful and did so good.

AK had a lesson on him after her trainer rode.

She is so happy to be riding him again.

We are hoping he holds.
He is not ready to come back yet.
We are not going to rush it.

Praying like crazy that I am kissing this face on Valentines Day!
