Babies and Computers

So, yesterday we got pictures of a little girl who was just born in Guatemala. We also got a picture of her birth mother. Both of them are just beautiful. I'm not willing to look at them much as I'm not prepared to give my heart away to her just yet. I'm the kind of person that once I've given my heart away, I can't get it back. So, I guess I'm protecting my heart until I know that we are going to get her. It's kind of weird because I can feel myself holding back. We spoke briefly to our case worker and she believes that if nothing out of our control goes wrong, we should be able to get her in 3-4 months. DH is very stressed right now. We aren't going to post pictures of her until we bring her home, for safety reasons.

On another note, my sister has called and my nephew is taking his wife to the hospital. She is 24 weeks pregnant and is having problems so please pray for her. They have already lost one baby.

Other than that, we got a new computer last week and DH put it all together and we installed all the software yesterday. It's really fast and has a TON of memory so we're excited about that.

congrats on the computer. I just prayed for your nephews wife and will keep the adoption in prayer as well.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I know exactly what you mean about giving your heart. It has happened to us several times during our four and one-half years of providing foster care.

Thanks to you and your husband for your service to our country.

Good to meet you Bob. You're welcome. I think my hold on my heart is slipping now. I'm just too involved with thoughts of her now.
