progress..or at least a little..

So since the bio parents had PTR removed several months ago, I have been calling, emailing, calling again in attempt to get in touch with our adoption worker to get things moving. The only reason I even knew her name was because it was on the paperwork she sent and we filled out and sent back the same week. This week I was working and a strange number appeared on my phone, I ignored since I was busy and later listened to the VM and it was our new adoption worker. He got our case this week and called to schedule a visit for this next week to get the ball going. He said he was assigned 14 cases total from this lady and nothing had been done with any of them.. SO FINALLY some progress towards the finalization!! I was told there was nothing wrong, but I couldn't help but think there was something going on, why else wouldnt she call me back? so yeah.... I feel way better now!

The new job is going well. I really like it.. There is a ton of new information, new people, new computer systems.. and by Friday pm I felt like my brain was mush.. but once I am in rhythm with everyone/everything, I think it will be great. The physicians I work with really care about their patients and are so devoted to raising funds towards finding a cure. It is very inspiring. It also makes me a teeny tiny tad bit envious, because I wish there were as many that were so dedicated physicians working to find a cure for mitochondrial disease.. but I know great strides are being made in finding a cure for both childhood cancer as well as mito and that makes my heart happy.. both are so devestating and I just wish tomorrow we would wake up and all of these illnesses that rob us of our children and that rob our children of their childhoods were just gone... but for now, we just look forward and know that one day all of this will be no more.. no hurt or sickness.. what a day that will be :)

well LM is being entirely too quiet so I better see what she is into.. see you all soon :)

My name is Jenna and I came across your site. Your story and Ella's story really touched, It is very heart breaking to lose a child especially to this horrible disease. I am from Kamloops BC Canada and I was friends with a little girl who passed away at three years old. She had a type of Metabolic/Mitochondrial disease. She was a precious and special little girl dear to my heart, and I always think about her after four years of her passing. I got to read a poem at her Celebration of Life, it was a sad day for me but a speail day. I know that my little buddy Brookie wouldn't want me to be sad she would want me to be happy and for me to keep fighting my battle like she fought hers. Even though my disease is a totally different one from her and Ella. Maybe Brookie and Ella are friends in heaven. I love it when people sign my geustbook.
