An Update From the Lims (Jubilee Missionaries)

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is doing well.  Here is another update from the Lims.  So much has happened since the last time we sent out an update. Miles is doing great.  He is eating and sleeping well.  He is a very easy going baby overall.  We celebrated his 100th day on Feb. 24th at church with friends from mom’s ministry and church staff.  He is already over 4 months old and has two teeth! Time is flying by… I am not going to lie.  It’s been a tough few months for us.  Having three young kids all adjusting to something has been chaos and stressful.  Just the past few weeks, we were adjusting Jacob and Katherine to toddler beds from their cribs (yes, Jacob slept in a crib until now!), Katherine adjusting to school, while we were sleep training Miles in his own room. And when we thought things were getting better, we all got sick!  It started with Jacob with a runny nose and eye boogers, and next thing we know, we are all in bed taking antibiotics.  During this time Miles developed a bad case of bronchiolitis and had to be admitted to the hospital.  He was there for 4 nights and was released with some medication.  Alex and I had to take turns to be at the hospital while the other took care of the two older kids who were also on medication.  Alex also had a bad throat infection with nose bleeds and bloated red eye. We were pretty tired and burnt out and had little patience with each other.  We were yelling at our kids way too much and fighting.   However, it’s been 4 full days since Miles was discharged and we can finally say things are settling down and we have found some peace.  Jacob and Katherine are sleeping well in their own beds, Katherine is doing great at school and the teachers tell me she is a perfect girl that follows all directions, plays and eats well, never cries or complains, which is AMAZING since we were worried about a language barrier and new environment. But she loves school, is eager to go every morning, and we believe having a routine has been really good for her. The kids are finally all off their medication, and Miles is sleeping 12 hours in his own crib! So the past 3 nights in a row, we had three kids going to bed at 7:30 and not waking up until the next morning!  HALLELUJAH! This gave both Alex and I some time to rest and we got our insanity back and we are doing much better.  lol  Adoption update:We are about 90% done with our paper work.  We were hoping we would finish everything by April 1st, but my physical test came out abnormal- low white blood cells and trace amount of blood in my urine, that I have to retake the test in two weeks, which will delay the process.  We also have to translate all Korean documents to English which is taking some time as well.  Thank you so much if you were one of people that wrote us a recommendation letter.  Prayer requests:1. That my physical exam in two weeks will come back normal and will be the last test I will have to take2. We will be able to get all the paper work done and finish so that we will get a court date soon. Miles’ birth mom contacted us to let us know that she will be leaving Korea this summer.  We need to finalize the adoption in Korea before she leaves the country.  3. Our health- we can’t take things for granted. All of our kids are at an age where they need our attention and assistance.  We need to be healthy!  Please pray especially for Alex’s back.  4. Finances.  We will be fundraising to cover our adoption expenses, expected to be between $15,000 to $20,000.  If you would like to contribute (and for more updates), please give at http://www.jubilink.com/en/limfamily.  Donations are tax deductible in the US and in Korea.  Thank you for your prayers and support for our family. We will not be here without you guys.
