Since I declared a little “radio silence” to anything regarding the “A” word (shhh…adoption), I have had so many cards and emails telling me to hang in there. I just wanted to say thank you. I also had some people send a little gift. Thank you. Your gift will be going to William’s Infirmary and to benefit Abe’s Fund at Lucky Hill. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Check here.
William’s Infirmary has supplies stacked in boxes on the floor and stuck into filing cabinets. I want to get it all up off the ground into properly labeled storage bins on new shelves. So, I’m going to use the generous gifts that you all sent to our new kids to stimulate the economy in Budumburam and employ a local carpenter to build those shelves. Then, while my kids are in school at Kings International School, and I’m patiently twiddling my thumbs for their visas to print, I will do what I love to do best…ORGANIZE. I’ll proudly display some pictures when I’m done. I can’t even begin to tell you how proud I am of how far we’ve come. None of the kids at Lucky Hill will ever have to suffer the way William did. And, good things came out of the pain he endured. God definitely had a plan for William (besides the fantastic parents he got out of the deal). God made sure that the hospital is standing there now for all those injuries that could become major without a little first aid. Wow. What a difference a year makes!!! I have lofty goals for this year as well. How about a nurse for our little Infirmary?
The Full Plate Family is hanging in there, readying our home for the two new blessings that should be arriving in the next four weeks. We’ve got flooring to lay, closets to organize and Spring soccer schedules to manage. Life continues on.
–Full Plate Mom,
who feels your prayers.
