Welcome to the Carter blog. There once were 5 of us, then we grew to 11, then 14 for a short period and now are about to be 12. Some may say we are actually ONE EGG SHORT OF A DOZEN for choosing to have a large family. We hurt and cry and sometimes yell but then again we laugh, forgive, and have fun much more! We call ourselves FAMILY. Join us on the adventures we seem to fall into on our adoption journeys and family life. You never know what you will find!

Well, I want to give you an update on the latest. Our attorney met with Internal affairs this morning but was told they would get back to him. Last night, I was awakened by god and felt the urgent need to pray for Allenni and Andrew and all that was going on. Only this morning did i realize that it was at the same time that Our attorney was meeting with internal affairs. (Africa is 8 hours ahead of us). So that was neat. Also, last night I sent emails out to my Senator and to UNCHR (Untited nations commission on Human Rights) asking for help in granting a travel document to the kids to travel to the United states without a passport. i found that this can be allowed to people who are Stateless and since Uganda has declared then as non-ugandans and Rwanda won't claim them, they are kids without a country. So please pray that they will be allowed to travel even if passports are not issued. I never knew this was a possibility and feel greatly encouraged. On another note, i got my test results back and everything about me is perfectly normal! No parasites,no infection and blood counts are all good. so, it is either a virus or a spiritual matter where the enemy is trying to keep me down. But we are victorious in Christ and I will not let the enemy get me down. Thanks again for all your prayers! Blessings, melissa
