Honesty

So ready to hold these little hands in ours.

Can I just be real honest for a moment?  It's not getting any easier to wait.  I have probably shed tears 5 times already just today.  I don't say this to get sympathy or a pat on the back, but I say this because it's real.  Not knowing when you will get to meet your child is hard.  Most days we wear a smile on our face and shove the tears to the back, but not today.  

Would you pray for our family?  Pray for the health and safety of our little girl.  Pray that the "process" would make progress.  Pray that God would give us the patience that we need to make it through the months ahead.  Pray that we would give up the control.

  8. I've been in your shoes waiting on my little sister (for three years) to come home from Guatemala. Let me say from experience that He is forever faithful in the times we need him most. I'm sure you already know that, but it never hurts to hear it again. :) Praying for you!

  9. Hi Amy- We are also adopting one of the children from Eastern Congo. It is heartbreaking to imagine what our little ones have gone thru. We can't wait to bring our precious little boy home. Hopefully things will be moving forward quickly. Would love to keep in touch!

  12. While waiting for our daughter (whom we adopted from Russia in 2004) I literally thought my heart would break from the waiting. It was so difficult but I KNEW that God has His hand on this process and that He was blessing us with the desires of our heart. So I prayed...I prayed for time to pass quickly, I prayed for my baby girl, I prayed that God would use the time while we were waiting to prepare us to be Godly parents...and I prayed that He would heal the hurt. I will be praying for your sweet family as well. I believe there is great power in prayer and hopefully the prayers from one small family in southeastern Georgia will help ease your pain and allow you to be still and KNOW that He is in control.

  13. Praying for you in Central Florida! We adopted our daughter, Lindsey, almost 9 years ago. Her birthday is Tuesday! We were married 13 years before we got her, and we've had her for 9, but I hardly remember the years before she joined our family. I will really pray that God begins to move TODAY!
    Blessings-
    Kelly
