Two China Dolls and a Prince!

This blog chronicles the story of 2 of our adoptions, both older children when they came home. It begins in 2008 and will continue in the hopes we can be of encouragement and information to anyone thinking of older child adoption.

A close call....

Wow, today at church we are saying a prayer of thanks. Jr was driving home with James and Jazmin in the Jeep and was slammed into by a car speeding over a hill on our road, not more than a quarter mile from home. The car hit Jazmin's side but luckily far enough back, she wasn't hurt. Other than being a little sore, James and JR are ok, too. The Jeep may be totalled though, as the axle and frame have been damaged. If they don't total it, we have a $500 deductible that was definitely NOT in the budget and if they do total it, I HATE car shopping! It never fails, that just when I "think" I have the finances at a manageable point, something happens to blow it out of the water. Luckily, though, my dad has an extra car he is loaning us until we figure something out, so at least we can get back and forth to work this week.

I am so happy to hear everyone is alright. I am sorry you have to deal with this on top of the adoption.
