We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

New Sleeping Schedule

I think we have worked out a sleeping schedule that works with our orphanage schedule, Kevin's work schedule and our jet lag.  We are now sleeping from 5pm (local time) to midnight.  That way Kevin can still work from midnight to 6am and we are still getting a descent amount of rest.  It worked very well tonight.  Although now it is 2am and I am STARVING.  There are some 24 hour restaurants nearby like Subway but I am not sure how safe it is here for a woman to be out alone so late. So we will have to hit the market tomorrow so we can buy dinner to eat at 2am.  Funny!


  1. Your girls are so precious! I wish we were able to travel and adopt internationally. we would bring home several little ones with Down Syndrome. We are praying for your family daily and excited to see more about them. Debbie

  2. Sounds like a good plan! You will be WASTED (ha ha had to say that) by afternoon every day...but the good thing is maybe it won't be so hard to get back on your normal schedule when you come home! Poor Kevin...that would be so hard to concentrate when you're so tired and have so much on your mind.

  3. anxious to hear about your second visit with Elena....we are praying for you here in the states!!
