I still exist. I still have a computer. I still know how to type.
The only new development is that I no longer have any time to do it. I apologize for that. But I’m also thankful for that because the reason I have no time to type now is that I have started an awesome new job that is making me incredibly happy, allowing me to make a positive difference in my community, and helping us pay for Sister’s care in the Home Country. So that is good news. Very good news.
The bad news is we still have no timeline for Sister’s homecoming. Many, many moons ago when I last updated this blog, we were in the middle of preparing for a big trip that would allow us to hopefully influence the events keeping her and so many others away from their families. We had been chosen as one of the handful of families in this process to sit down with Home Country officials and explain our situation, plead our case, and hopefully make them understand how much this suspension is hurting our children. We were beyond excited to have the chance to make a difference in this wait. Unfortunately, that trip was cancelled by the Home Country. To say we were devastated is a complete understatement. We are still very frustrated but we are hanging in there. We have faith that she will come home, we are still just praying that it will be soon.
Other than that, we are good. Busy, but good. Hopefully I will find the time to update more often. Hopefully I’ll have good news to share soon. Hopefully you will all have a great Memorial Day!
