About Me

My name is Tracy and I am married to an amazing man, his name is Thomas! We are a busy family that is always on the go between church, school, work and sports.... we are not a sitting around kind of family. We have 4 amazing children and are working on bringing home Elias to make 5. My hubby is Deaf and I am a sign language interpreter,we are very involved in the Deaf community and are excited to be adding another Deaf member to our family. Our kids, Aaron-19, Luke-11, Tommy-10 and Paige-5 are anxious for their new brother to be home. This is our second adoption and we are learning more everyday to lean on God, this journey is already strengthening our faith! We are working on learning how to turn everything over to God and know that He has a perfect plan and all will happen in His time! Good things come to those who wait.

Day 14 of our TA wait is Monday

Well guys Monday  is day 14 of our TA wait and we are praying so hard that it comes in this week! Tom and I have been working like mad on the house since my break started and we are trying to get the rooms all organized and ready to go! We have been cleaning house too! Why not organize and get rid of things we don't need and De-clutter while we are in cleaning mode and Luke isn't here yet.  We have Luke's suitcase all packed and ready to go and we have everything we need ready except our clothes. So we are totally into getting ready mode. I have contacted a travel agent about our tickets to China and gave her some possible dates we are hoping to travel. Got some prices for different options. I am now trying to get in touch with the travel agent that our adoption agency has us use for our in China flight and our hotels, guides and any in China transportation needed. I have not been able to get in touch with them but realized my Comcast is not allowing some emails from China to go through, some are coming through and some aren't. So I emailed from my yahoo and we shall see what happens. I am making lists for my father and mother in law for when they fly in from Texas to watch the kids. Tommy has a TON of wrestling the 2 weeks we are hoping to be away (he has a ton for the next 3 months so it wouldnt matter when we went) but I am making a list of what times and places he needs to be at! Also a list of all the normal everday things that need to happen to make our house run and get our kids where they need to be.  Sure hope they knew what they were getting into when they said they would come stay with the kids when we go away! So excited for what is to come! Please pray with us that we receive our travel assignment (TA) this week and that the Good Lord will help to provide the funding needed to bring our son home!
I will surely be updating as soon as I have news of our TA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
