Hi everyone,
Its been a long time. We have moved
New address
5815 Country Rd 35
Auburn IN 46706

I have no internet access so I don't get to check my blog very often, if any of you
were wondering.

I am 14 1/2 weeks pregnant just had a dr.'s appt everything is good.
Will find out what the baby is on Jan 20th.

My weight restriction has been lifted so I am going back to working nights this friday night
I am waiting to hear about a job at Parkview North so I hope that I get it, it would be day shift.

Learning to wait on the Lord, seems He is always teaching me this.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Joey and I have much to be thankful for this year, God has been good.

Love ya all,

Change, Change and more Change

Well after 2 years of the adopting process and though valleys and mountains.....


Thank you for all your prayers and support!

I am feeling pretty well except some nausea in the morning. We had our first ultrasound over a week ago and everything is looking good, we got to hear the heartbeat, that was pretty amazing.

We closed on our new home a few weeks ago and are doing some painting and minor changes to the home before we move in.

Yesterday, we had to put our cat Lucky to sleep because he had become very sick and the cost of trying to make him better would have been too much for us to pay.

For those of you who have ever lost a pet you know what I mean when I say they become part of the family, it was sad but life goes on. We still have peaches who keeps us entertained:)

I will keep you all updated, continue to pray as I know you will.

We leave tomorrow for a short trip to Michigan for a marriage conference looking forward to it.

Have been working for occupational health giving flu shots and on Thursday have an interview for a Surgical coordinator position that would be less stressful than my nursing position on the heart floor and I wouldn't have to lift more than 30 lbs.

God is good and He keeps showing me that daily.

Love ya all,

Appointment in Indy-the next chapter

Hi everyone,

Well this week was full of emotions.

Went to Cedar Point and had a day of just pure crazy fun that is if you like roller coasters, which Joey and I do.

Yesterday Joey and I traveled to Indy for my mock transfer appt for our embryo adoption.
Everything went well, I was given the ok and we even picked out embryos from parent profiles that Dr Boldyt gave us, he thankfully did not make us choose them in the office in front of him.
I was anxious and excited all at the same time. They will only transfer 2 embryos but we picked 6 for back ups in case when they thaw the embryos they are not viable. We chose from 2 families and feel at peace with our decision. The end of august or beginning of Sept. is when the transfer should happen. Lord willing.

Thanks for all your prayers, we will keep you all informed
and if you have any questions just call

Until later,

Hope everyone's having a great summer. Just spent 4 days in IL. My sister and sister in law are expecting babies in January. Joey and I have an appt in Indy july 30th with the doctor for the embryo adoption.

Keep praying that God will work through this all.
It is easy to think of all the negative and things that could go wrong.

But with God all things are possible.

Love to all,

Still moving forward

Thanks for all the replys and comments and prayers.

I have been in contact with the nurse in Indy and she will set me up with an appt this monday or Tuesday. There are still some unknowns but she did answer a lot of my questions.

Also, Joey and I are starting to look at houses because our lease on the house we are now living in is over in December.

I am writing this on Sat night, I just got downstaffed from work which means not enough patients for the staff that is scheduled. I was excited, even though it will use some of my paid time off. They could call me back in though at 11. So we will see.

Enjoying the summer weather, road bikes with joey today, and went to a really nice graduation party for a friend of ours.

Have a great weekend.

I actually have some positive news about the adoption. My husband and I two months ago today started the application process for embro adoption with a christian organization in Tenn.
Today I recieved word that all our blood work, paperwork, and homestudy have been accepted.
We will be setting up an appt. with the doctor soon to meet with him in July which by the way will be in Indy. instead of having to go all the way to tennesse. Have to go to work in an hour, so more later.

Thanks for all the prayers, for Pam ( my emotion is joy, peace, awe of God's faithfulness and goodness=) love ya Pam.

Till next time,

Happy Mother's Day

I just want to send this to all the women who have played a mother's roll in my life.
Life throws us lemons sometimes but God sends us those who help us make lemonade out of them.

May God bless all the mothers whatever their lot may be.

This weekend I am going out with some girls tonight, and tommorow night Joey and I are taking his mom out to dinner.

Have a great weekend,

Still breathing

It's been a long time since I have wrote, I check a lot of blogs and read them and then just never take the time to write. Work 3 12hr shifts, while most of you sleep I am trying to save lives. Lately I have had very sick patients and some have passed on. It was really neat one week I had the opportunity to help a family say goodbye to their loved one, what was so nice is that he knew Jesus and the family had the hope that he was going to heaven to suffer no more.

Adoption update....PRAY PRAY PRAY!!!!!

We are looking into some different agencies and some different options for adoption.
God has placed some people in our lives to help get the process rolling again and make sure we are doing everything we can. I am reading Hannah's Hope right now and it is about a women who has grieved the loss of not having children.

God continues to grow us through the waiting.

Joey's business is going well. He has jobs and people are satisfied with his work

Also, last week I found out my husband wasn't covered on my insurance by my error and we were told I would have to wait another year to get him covered.
Well after prayer and giving it to God.
Monday I made some calls and He is covered now.
Another Praise.

Thanks to all those who blog, I enjoy reading your thoughts.
Sometimes they encourage me a lot.

Spent the weekend in Indy for our 5th anniversary. Will have some pictures up soon. Besides forgeting the tickets to the concert. The weekend went pretty well. Thankfully I remembered that I didn't have the tickets and our neighbor's met us half way back to Leo.
Trying to get used to this new schedule of working 12 hour night shift. It's going ok.
Have a great week.

Praise to God

Just wanted to write, been reading a lot of blogs lately. Seems like there is a lot of people who can use prayers and are going through a lot of situations. Today in church the spirit came to me and whispered God is good, Jesus loves me this I know, and whatever the future holds God goes before me. For those of you who do not know we are pursuing adoption things are slow, our homestudy is done but now we have moved and trying to adjust to a different life without teenagers. My heart sometimes still griefs for a child and all the changes our life has taken.
Thanks for all your prayers,

until next time,
