Stinker Houdini

Well, having a puppy is wonderful! She beautiful, full of energy, and loves people. There is still no set name.

Scott keeps calling her Stelga because he wanted to name her Helga, but we both like the name Stella (like a scooter). With everything that has happened, I think we should call her Sassy Stella Stinkers! It totally describes her.

 Last night was an adventure to say the least. She slept well from 10 pm to about 2 am. She then went back to sleep for another hour and woke up yelping and ready to play. She was up howling from 3 am to 7 am. Then she went to sleep as I left for work. I had put her in a pen last night and this morning.

When I got home from work, she was NOT in the pen! She can climb out! I guess we'll start putting her in the crate! She is a little Houdini, LOUD talker, and sweetheart. I just love watching her sleep. She has this one spot in the kitchen that she loves to lie on. 

I'm off to play! I will have to put up pictures when I get to my main computer.

New Puppy

In 4 days, we get our newest member of our family.  We pick up our sweet little girl puppy on Thursday!  She is an adorable mini blonde golden doodle.  She does not have a name yet, but there are some contenders.  Scott gets to name the dog since I picked out the breed.  Goldendoodles are hypo-allergenic.  He likes the names Helga, Gertrude, or Beulah.  My picks would be Stella or Susie.  We will see what she is named on Thursday.  We are so excited!

New Adventure

Scott is starting his new career in just 3 days! He will be a high school social science teacher. Although this means more stability and comfort for our family, it also means we cannot travel for long periods of time at the drop of a hat.

My husband and I are starting a new adventure. We love our children in Poland, but realize there is no possibility of a future.  They will be loved forever and prayed for often.  We have seem to have hit every possible road block on our quest for a family! Our hearts are still wide open to adoption, but we are focusing closer to home.

This is a new leaf in our life. We are pursuing infant adoption through LDS Adoptions. This could take a few years, but we have waited that long already. We have learned to cherish each and every moment with each other and each child that we are blessed to come in contact with. We are grateful for all the support we have received from friends and loved ones.  Thanks to all the women at church that let me hold your sweet babies.

Looking back, I thought it could all be planned out and put to a time schedule. I do not consider myself to be controlling or demanding, but I do like life to be predictable and for things to progress at a certain rate. Life is unpredictable, and no one I know has a crystal ball. I have checked!

You can help us out. If you hear of someone who is pregnant and considering adoption, you can refer them to this blog.  We will soon put a profile in I will let you know when it is up and posted.  Thank you as always! We love and appreciate you!
