**Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain.**

To sum it up...

Well this past month has been very busy all around. Kainen had spring break the first of the month and Danny and I took the week off. We had a great Easter. We spent the day with Danny's side of the family and had dinner and the big "hunt". I played "Just Dance" on the Wii all day with my nieces. I LOVE that game. If you don't have it, you need to get it. Wow! What a work out.

We took Kainen and his friend to an indoor water park in French Lick, In. for two days. It was nice to get away and relax. The boys had a really good time. After we came home for that we didn't do too much the rest of the week. Just hung out and did little projects around the house. I like those kind of vacations some times.

We were given a Compassion International child to pray over and possibly sponsor at church a few weeks ago. We have her photo out so we can pray for her when passing by the kitchen. She is 6 years old and from Guatemala. She is a sweety. I can't wait to get started on helping her through this program. A Compassion International child who is now grown came to speak about his story of being sponsored. It was amazing.

Nothing new on the adoption front. PGN continues to tell me that we are waiting for the typo to be fixed on a report. I don't know what else to do besides try to go to the US for help.

On May 6th the Guatemala 900 group (all families still stuck in process) will go to Washington DC and have a congressional briefing and a private meeting with a someone from our state senators office. There are several things on the agenda that day. I am traveling by myself but will meet up with another mom who lives not too far from me. I will also get to meet several other families whom I have come to know through emails and phone calls. If you want to check out more about it go to www.guatemala900.org . That is where most of the info is and will be. Due to work, I can only be there for literally 24 hours. I fly in wed. evening and fly home thursday evening. Crazy huh? I will do whatever it takes to exhaust all my avenues to bring these children home. Please pray for this day, safe travels and some answers. This could be our last big effort to get our voices heard and get these children home.

I really hope someone listens and moves some mountains. I will be thinking of you and all of the families still waiting.
