Missing our girl
I have not forgotten to update the blog, there just isn't much to say. I mean, unless you are physically going through this or have been through an adoption, it is hard to relate. Lately I haven't really felt like posting.
We have been very busy the past month with Kainen's football, Halloween and work. Kainen was a GI Joe for Halloween. We hosted a "Movie Night" at hour house a few weeks ago. Kainen invited all the neighborhood friends over. We had admission tickets, a snack bar (Danny worked behind the counter), and made the living room like at the "real" movies. The kids LOVED it. It was a very inexpensive evening.
Me, Kainen, Pam and her daughter Maria fly out Thursday morning for Guatemala. We will be there 5 days. Pam has been busy sewing stockings for the children at Casa Alegria. She plans to deliver them and have a short visit with the children. I have been trying to find out more about our case and why PGN refused the judges ruling to move forward. It is insane down there. I talk to family after family who is in this mess like us. If only the government saw the children behind the paperwork. I am going to PGN on Thursday to talk to them. Not sure it will do me any good, but I will be as persistent as I can. It is very hard to be persistent when you live 2800 miles away.
Kinsey is well. She is as healthy as she has been in a very long time. I am so thankful for that. She is saying full sentences in Spanish now. I am soooo in trouble. My Spanish gets better and better, but I am not anywhere close to where I need to be. We call her twice a week. I don't know any child that will sit for 25 minutes on the phone and talk without getting up or losing interest. It is amazing. She has always done this. She sits and says "Hola Mama" "Hola Papa" over and over. It is great. I will post info as it comes. Thanks for being so supportive. I know Kinsey is loved by so many people and you want her home as much as we do.
