Sick and Tired

We have had a tough week! Sawyer came home from school sick last Friday. It turned out he had laryngitis/croup and tonsillitis. Monday morning he woke up feeling a little better, but little brother Jax woke up with a barking seal cough. He also had croup and is still getting over it. This is how he spent his first day of MDO. I teach MDO twice a week and Jax is in the class across the hall. He hasn't been able to go this week, but hopefully he will be feeling much better by next Tuesday.
I have really been trying to stay positive about our adoption, but it has been really hard the last couple of days. I am sure lack of sleep from being up all night with sick kids hasn't helped, but I have been feeling really discouraged. We haven't heard anything official from our agency, yet have been hearing that it could be a year or more before Rwanda reopens for adoption.

This evening we found out that the caseworkers at AGCI met today to discuss all of the Rwanda paperwork families. They will call all of us tomorrow to let us know what our options will be at this point. Please be in prayer for us. Pray for God to clearly show us what to do. I thought we were done making these big decisions, but things have changed and we may have some decisions to make. Please pray that we will have the courage to do whatever God shows us.


  1. Not really sure what to say... other than I understand. Trying not to think about what tomorrow will bring.

    So hard when little ones are sick...

    God is writing our little ones story.

  2. is he getting better now? You may try Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa ( i know alot of people use it, its also non alcoholic, though it's effectiveness is not as good as alcohol based cough medicine, but it's still good to use on not so serious coughs.

    apprently ( according to the instruction) children from 2 to 12 can use it.
