Sugar Pie has been a real trooper. She looks forward to going into his room each day and putting a sticker on his count down calendar. Then we say a little prayer for him. 83 more days today.
I still can't help but wonder if they are just telling us July so we don't get our hopes up again with an earlier travel only to have it delayed again.....I want to believe it because it would be such a relief, blessing and pleasant surprise if it were earlier. It gives me hope. I know our agency will do the best they can....after all although they are wonderful advocates for these sweet children it is also a lively hood for them, and it's probably been quieter for them since things have slowed down. I'm holding onto the hope of it being changed to mid June. (I had a message on my answering machine a couple of weeks ago from agency saying middle June possibly....that was before the latest info but from two different people in the agency..) This little photo is a pic of Hunny Bunch's orphanage.
I'm not meaning to rant.... just typing my feelings(on my own blog so I can look back on the chronicles of adoption#2 one day)....I feel the pain but I can't do a thing to change it myself so I rely on the one thing I know is true and that's my faith in the Lord. He knows where our LOA/LSC is and how soon it will come. He also knows when our TA will be here. So the best thing I can do right now is pray...... .....in childlike faith with a smile on my face....just like my daughter does. Wednesday night she prayed and asked Jesus into her heart......my heart swelled as I listened to that sweet little voice talking to her heavenly Father. She has been a little prayer warrior right from day one when she started saying grace but only recently started to fully understand the gospel. There wasn't a hint of hesitation when daddy and I asked her if she would like to pray a prayer to ask Jesus to be her saviour. Truly the little ones "get it" better than some older people who try to complicate and excuse the invitation. I wanna grow up to be just like my daughter and have that kinda childlike faith.....in all God puts in our path.
Romans 5:1-5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
