We did not make much progress in the adoption "paperwork." We are still waiting on a meeting to take place that will have significant effects on our case. I do not kow when this will be but please remember it in your prayers.
This week I also got to feel Ugandan. I have been feeling "Ugandan" for a while now but I think I was missing one experience that was truely African. Malaria. Yes, I have been in the bed sick with malaria and a bacterial infection. I have had the joy of going to the clinic, having lab work done, and receiving IV fluids and antibiotics. I will say that going to the doctor here was much more pleasant than the dr. in Russia. Being sick with two three year olds running around has not been fun. I keep reminding myself "this too shall pass."
The girls have been well behaved while mommy has been out of commission. The staff at the house has helped me out a lot with them. They have been my nannys and without them I am not sure I would have survived this week.
Even though it was rough it was also good. This week I have been reminded of how much my God protects me. How much He comforts me. I have had to lean on Him this week and seek my comfort in Him. And that has made it a good week.
