Not accepting this as an answer!

So darn, we ran into our very first person unwilling to help us out. Charlie new it was going to be this way as soon as he heard the man's voice on the phone. It's funny how that works. We were calling to see if we could get any help in the state police department area. Uhmmmmmm that would be a NO. Even after explaining the situation the man didn't care. I guess I can't complain because we were bound to run into somebody like this eventually. I just don't understand how even after explaining the situation with my baby a human being wouldn't do everything absolutely possible to help. Merry Christmas officer! While you and your children are warm in your cozy beds, and eating all the food you can handle, by son will be waiting for his mommy and daddy for 7-14 extra days because you can't seem to expedite our fingerprints! On a much happier note however, Martin's fund has grown quite a bit today! I just can't believe everyone's willingness to help our family. I continue to have faith that despite the Officer Unhelpfuls out there, there are many, many more good people out there willing to help others. That makes me smile!!!


  1. Don't sweat it ... just a minor bump in the road that was just a glimpse of hope to begin with. There is bound to be headaches ... try to let them pass you by! :)

  2. How wonderful that you are adopting this sweet little boy! We have also adopted two children with downs syndrome , Eight years ago now. Boy time fly's Just wanted to let you know that we are praying for you and will do all we can to help. We are in Christiansburg Va. It is so great to see "locals" adopt through reeces rainbow. I think they are great!!! Merry Christmas and God Bless!
