I have been struggling waiting for our homestudy to be done. It's so hard when there is nothing we can be doing to feel like we are moving foward to get our boy. Jared and i are kind of wierd, we rarely leave our kids w/ others, almost never with someone who is not family. So, when i think about Eli, sitting in an institution, it rips my heart to shreds. I have no idea what is happening to him, how he is being treated, anything. I have NO CONTROL!!!! And that is a struggle for me. I know this process is stretching me in many ways :)
Picture of my lovey! Isn't he such a doll????
On a scary side note, Luci (15 months) pulled a shoe dresser on top of her this weekend! I was so, so scared. I called 911! First time i have ever had to call that and i have 3 (soon to be 4 :) ) kids! The paramedics were so quick to come out and so kind to us. They wanted Luci to go to the hospital but felt like she was ok for me to transport. Of course, Jared had gone into work so i was alone with the kids! I called him on the way to the hospital to come meet us. I also called my sister in law and she met me and came and got the big kids so we didn't have to worry about entertaining them! The children's hospital was so nice. They got us in so quickly and were great with Luci. They were afraid she had broken her femur b/c she wouldn't bear any weight but after many x-rays all they saw was a bunch of swelling. She is moving better today and putting some weight on it, although she is still limping!
You can see the red mark on the side of her head! She somehow managed to get a bump on her forehead, the top of her head, and the back! That takes talent!
