Update from Dixie

22 January 2010   3:15 AM

Yes, that is right, it is 3:15 AM and I am blogging before I go to bed!  It has been a long day.  It started at 5:20 AM when I got up and continued until now!  First the earthquake struck at 6:10 AM and then I have been running ever since!  I went to the US Embassy this morning and started the paperwork for 83 visas.  I left there and went to try and find the place I was supposed to meet the Canadian Broadcast Company by the airport and never did find it!  The directions they gave me were totally incorrect.  So I finally gave up!

Traffic was horrible! It too hours to get from one place to another.

Oh, my goodness!  I just had fatigue wash over me...   maybe I should go to bed and finish this tomorrow.  My eyes are crossing and if I have errors in my typing please forguve me!

You are my hero! I am an adoptive parent of 3 kids. I found your blog and I'm praying every day for you. I pray you get the help you need now and in the hard days, months and years ahead. I pray God gives you amazing wisdom and that He also gives you great joy. Bless you and everyone there. I pray all your children find homes in wonderful families. I'm sure it must be hard to part with them all at once.

Greetings in Christ Dixie and John, We have a mutual friend, Jesus! Besides Him we also both know Jaclyn Morrow who attends a church about 25 miles from her Cahmpaign, IL home. (She now is living in No. AZ.) Her e-name is morjax; Jaclyn has shared your last e-message with me and this blog. Dixie and John, we are open and available to receive and nurture up to six Haitian children. Our houseparents are a very healthy and vigorous married couple who are great-grandparents and who love the Lord in word and deed. Will any of the 80-some visas you are requesting be for children in need? Pls let me know that we can help. Eph 3: 20 & 21 In His Embrace, ana -- from Benson, AZ (40 mins E of Tucson)

Please Dixie, Tell us if it is possible to start the adoption process. There will be so many children in need. Are there any agencies that can get families started and moving forward?

Rebecca, Please sign up in the sign up form on the right for donations. We're still in the process of determining exactly what we need and the logistics of how to get it to Haiti. Thank you for your support. Tom
