Happy Halloween Baby Girl!

Today I'm here with 
a Boo for my baby girl.
Sadly Emily Margaret won't be joining us
for Trick-or-Treats this year.
***Insert Charlie Brown's voice 
saying"I gotta rock." :(
Because that's pretty much how 
us Hinsons' feel.
Every celebration is merely bittersweet.
Good thing we'll have lots of
candy to drown tonight's hallow-sorrows. ;)

When Emily Margaret FINALLY comes home
this will be her 1st Halloween costume.
a lucky ladybug! 

So, when you see the newly formed Hinson 5
 trick-or-treating the Christmas tree, 
just know it was bound to happen.
Because next year she'll need a whole new costume. :)

 Happy Halloween
Baby Girl,
your Mama loves you more
than a hog loves slop!!!!

The Good, the Bad & the UGLY

Hi all it's me,
Emily Margaret's weary mama.
I wish I had the wit to make this post more palatable,
but I just don't have it in me.
So I give today's update in the form of
the good, bad and ugly.

The good: Emily Margaret's Visa came through today.
Talk about praising the Lord.
This mama even busted a couple of touch down dance moves!

The bad: We're still 2 weeks away from our Article 5
and then another 3-4 weeks away from our Travel Approval.

The ugly: When I asked for a possible travel time,
the answer was mid-December.
Not the October I was praying for
or the November I was told,
but December.

Believe me when I say there aren't words that could describe
the roller coaster of emotions that today has ridden.
I feel sorry for myself.
And then I remember that it's really my daughter
that's paying the price.


So I come before you to ask for prayer.
Please pray for Emily Margaret,
her fast journey home
and strength for our family.

God's blessings prayer warriors, Sarah
