Nothing new

It has been a slow two weeks around here. Anthony has been away for most of it. Our agency posted new pictures from the orphanage where Oliver is, but somehow they forgot to take pictures of him. A family went to get their baby the same day, but they also didn't take pictures of Oliver. We were disappointed, but could understand how it could happen. It was nice to see all of the other babies that Oliver gets to play with. Our agency said they should be back there in the next two weeks and they promise that they will take pictures. I hope so.

Otherwise we called our congresspeople and urged them to help adoptions in Vietnam to continue. They said they have received a lot of phone calls. I hope it helps. I hope everyone can complete their adoption. I hope we can bring Oliver home. I'm usually pretty positive, but for some reason this week I've been kind of blue about it all. It has been such a long process and I just hope we can bring him home.

Anthony and I have vowed to have a fun weekend. He has been away for the last two weeks. We are going to kick off summer this Saturday. I'm really in the mood for a clam bake. It is going to be in the 90s this weekend so besides the fact that we are two hours from the ocean I don't see why we can't do it.
