On the home front, we (I mean me) are attempting the insurmountable task of potty training once again. Sydney is very interested. In going in her diaper. She has no problem pooping in the potty, but she flat out refuses to tinkle in the potty. I have tried EVERYTHING I can think of to get her to tinkle in the potty, but she just won't do it. I am not sure she knows how to release her urine into the potty. Diapers? No problem. But the potty is just not happening. I am trying very hard to stay positive with her, but it's difficult when I ask her to tinkle, sit her on the potty, nothing. Then as soon as she pulls her pull-up back on, she tinkles. If anyone out there in Cyberspace has some advice for me, please let me know. I think she wants to be potty trained, she tells me she does. Then she will say, "No, I will just go in my diaper." We have tried rewards, treats, trips to _______, celebrations, big girl panties, peer pressure, and probably some things you shouldn't try. If you or someone you know has every potty trained a difficult child, please pass on some advice to me. Before I lose my mind!

Five Weeks and Counting
I talked with Yvonne (adopted two girls from China) at the library yesterday and asked her if she knew of anyone who had applied for and received an I-171H lately here in Amarillo. She said the most recent one she knew about took six weeks. SO... hopefully ours will come in another week or so. Please pray that it comes soon. Come on Homeland Security!!!!
