God's faithfulness. -- Author Unknown

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one
to say 'thank you?' -- William A. Ward

It's been awhile since I've updated anyone about anything.
What can I say, life has been very busy for me.
We finally have our paperwork on its way to India (or already there). We finish immigration paperwork here. I'm emailing for Article 5 tonight. Hoping to see some movement soon. Craving my baby.
We are focusing on fundraising here. It is SLOW going. Hoping to get some donations and find some great fundraising events.
The kids are doing great. Ananya is learning to read. It's slow going because I'm using phonics and that isn't the easiest way to teach a child with severe speech problems. I'm doing it purposefully because she is making so many new sounds too. That is great. She seems to understand it so that's very good.
Prasun is walking and getting stronger. We aren't seeing the huge gains we had been seeing but slow and steady is good too.
Both kids got their new Special Tomato strollers (I Love Them!). They are alot more comfortable in them. Hoping to get new high chairs/booster seats for them at some point.
We've been so busy making changes in how we do things around here. We are finding some things that work and some that don't. We are changing some things for just a short period of time and some for long term. Of course all families do this. Change is necessary. Its hard when its not necessarily the change that you want to see, but the one that has to be made.
Well I'm going to get off the computer now. Going to a great 4th of July party with some amazing families. Hoping to see more of them in the future. Hopefully I'll also have some more pictures to share.
