Gates Waits

A close friend of mine is in the endless process of adopting a child, nicknamed Gates, from China. The paperwork and red tape has been relentless, and now, at zero hour, the swine flu has thrown another huge cog in the wheel. Karrie could really use your prayers and support. I am linking to her blog here if you would like to read about her struggle and her beautiful, waiting child.

Praying here - I have had a friend adopt as well, and yes - it IS an endless process. Keep us updated when Gates arrives!
BTW - I cracked up at your mom's vacation line that you would have a good time "if it kills us!" I think we shared the same mother :)

I will keep your friend in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Tracie ~~ What a good friend you are to support your friends on
the adoption. I have 3 adopted kids
but only from Australia. We still had to wait, but not as much as today's overseas adoptions.

Thank you for your nice comments and I am so happy to be feeling like my old self. Had a lovely week with family and friends. Time surely is precious. Glad you enjoyed the post.
Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Oh, I would LOVE to go and "visit" your friend! I pray her little guy will be home VERY SOON!
