Louisiana, now off for the weekend from work, writes in her journal while making supper for the brood.

Friday, March 3, 2006, 6:30 p.m., C.S.T.~

Dear Journal~

Ahhh. The weekend. My favorite time! :) I am off all weekend, and I intend on enjoying it before I go back to work on Monday! :)

I am sitting here, waiting for supper to finish simmering on the stove. I made chili con carne (Good grey grief, I almost put CHILD con carne! LOL) and mashed potatoes. (Hmm..mashed potatoes ought to go well with child con carne! LOL Hmmm..wonder which child will be the victim tonight....Hee, heee, heee!) We will also have milk, water, or tea for the beverage choices. I know the family will enjoy supper: they'd better, as I worked my fingers to the bone making it! LOL

The children are relaxing today; no homework for them this weekend. They will be sleeping in or doing anything their little hearts desire. Johnny had a good checkup today at his doctor's at the MDA clinic. His disease has NOT progressed any (much to our surprise; it's been almost a year ago when he had his last checkup, and it's like his disease has stopped progressing! It has been something of a Miracle; I pray and hope that this continues! :) ). He is holding his own! :)

Ronee' is doing better; she has recovered from her fainting episode. She fainted yesterday morning while at her doctor's appointment due to severe stomach pains (cramps from that time of month). It was a little embarrassing for her, if anything else. She is acting just like her normal self now. I guess she caused quite a bit of excitment at Dr. Emmons' office! LOL

I have found out some exciting news: my daughter, Lightning, is pregnant with her sixth child! My friends Sari Constantinos (Finland), Jenna Aurora Doucet (Alaska), and M'Buti Ayala Moore-Sormiento (she lives in Tennessee, here in Nashville), are also expecting "bundles of joy"! :) Babies, babies, everywhere there's BABIES! WHEE! LOL Just as long as I am one of those who are expecting; Mon Dieu, what a MAJOR surprise THAT would be! LOL After having three kids of my own, then adopting 53 more, I don't NEED to become pregnant! LOL That would be worldwide headline news for SURE! LOL

I am writing to several new people in my adoption community: a woman in Kansas named Jerilyn Lotz, a woman in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, named Bitta Annike Magnussenn, and Heather Michelle Raney in Ashland, Kentucky, who is my newest penfriend. She has three small daughters (Patience, Charity, and Hope, all adopted from China), and she is a single parent. She was married until last year, but her husband, Marvin, died in a mining accident, and now she is raising the girls on her own. It is a very sad story, and when I read her heartfelt letter, I cried!

I am also still counseling with other couples interested in special needs adoption, and I talk to them and refer them to reputable adoption agencies specializing in special needs adoptions. Some have started their journey, but some (like yours truly!) are experienced--VERY experienced! :)

I have found out that my fourth book has been accepted for publication! I wrote a book for children ages 4-8 about special-needs adoption; it is our story, but done in a way that is suited for children. I am very excited; this is my first children's book! I hope people will want to read it, and I hope that they enjoy it when they do! :)

Bill is about over his fall, but he is still quite stiff and sore. I know it didn't help his back problems any! He fell on the ice a few weeks ago, and he badly strained his back. He will be home from work until his back fully recovers; he should be back in action by next weekend. He is doing exercises to strengthen his back muscles, and he is taking Flexeril (a strong pain reliever) to ebb some of the pain. He really gave me quite a scare! He could have really injured himself badly! He is very lucky, very lucky, indeed! :) God was with him, that is for DARN sure! :)

Well, Journal, this is about it for now. I will write in here again another day. 'Bye for now!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tennessee, Louie May. :D

It's good to be in the loop with other people in the adoption community. Sharing ideas and medical terminology is wise. Adoptions hold delights and it's good to know you're in like company. Thanks for the letter today, Karen Lynn.
